Investment and Jobs are signs of big future for Hollywood Monster

26.04.11

All the signs are good for a West Midlands company which has invested £1/2 million in new equipment and is recruiting 10 new workers as it diversifies into new markets in the UK.

Birmingham-based sign-makers and graphics company Hollywood Monster has increased turnover to £5 million after winning major contracts with commercial and residential property developers, Premier League football clubs, major retailers, shopping centres, theatrical events, exhibitions and others.

The success in securing new contracts has led to a recruitment drive to increase the workforce by 25% at the company’s modern 30,000 sq ft headquarters in Tyseley.

A major factor in Hollywood Monster’s ability to deliver some of the country’s largest and most creative signage solutions is its continuous investment in cutting edge printing technology, said managing director Tim Andrews.

The company has invested heavily in equipment enabling it to produce enormous banners and advertising hoardings at high-profile sites including sports stadiums, festivals, rock and pop concerts, shopping centres and property developments.

Tim said: “We’ve worked hard to diversify and break into new market sectors. All that effort and investment is now beginning to pay dividends. We are winning contracts in new sectors that are providing us with exciting opportunities to develop and grow our business.

“Thanks to our continuous investment in our equipment and staff we are in a strong position to manage and implement projects of all sizes. More and more customers are recognizing and appreciating the quality of our work and Hollywood Monster has gained a great reputation for delivering projects on budget and on time.

“It’s great to be in a position where we are winning more work which means we need to recruit new members to our team, providing work for talented and skilled people. We’re in the process of recruiting 10 new staff in a variety of positions.”

The company recently demonstrated its determination to stay well ahead of competitors by investing in new technology such as a Zund G3 Router, a new digital printer as well as a metal and plastic fabrication facility to enable the company to extend its service offering.

Hollywood Monster services a variety of industries across the UK including:  industrial, commercial and residential construction & development; retail; professional services; exhibition; event and stadium; museum & theatrical. Hollywood Monster was created in August 2009 with the coming together of sister companies Hollywood Signs and Monster Digital.
