Fresh orders prompt expansion at Birmingham printer

SPECIALIST printer Hollywood Monster has responded to an increase in orders by expanding the size of its Birmingham operation.

The Tyseley company has benefited from an expansion into London and as a result has picked up a series of new contracts.

The firm has set up a new dedicated sales suite at its home base and taken on a new staff member to help deliver additional growth.

The open plan working and meeting area is decked out with state of the art equipment and displays showcasing the company’s work, which includes time-lapse videos of projects from start to finish, a wall exhibiting material samples, and graphics of client projects.

Simon McKenzie, sales director at Hollywood Monster, said: “The sales suite is the first of a number of transformations happening here on site, which speaks volumes about how integral the work we, as the sales team, do for Hollywood Monster is.

“This new space means that we can invite both clients and suppliers to immerse themselves in the Hollywood Monster experience, showcasing what we as a company do and how we go about doing it.

“Over the next three months we will be changing a number of areas – from offices through to the factory floor – to ensure that we’re equipped to work effectively and continue delivering the best possible service to clients. This is a really exciting time for us and we’re seeing the business grow considerably, across our key sectors; property, retail, sports stadia, and exhibitions.”

Helping with the increased workload is new customer relationship manger, Kerry Price.

Ms Price, who joins from a business development role, is taking responsibility for day-to-day client liaison and relationship management. She will also act as the point of contact for project updates and client needs.

“We have a number of emerging sectors that we’re gaining more work in, which is great, and the addition of Kerry to the team means that we’re able to communicate with clients right through the process,” added Mr McKenzie.
