“But I’m delighted to see just how Fastsigns Peterborough has adapted to and embraced the challenges.

“Not only have we been able to move premises, helping us access better transport routes to meet future demand, we’ve also grown our team.

“Over the past 12 months, the centre has gone from strength to strength, with the team working on a range of projects from across the region.

“Our success is down to our well-established global brand, as well as good forward-planning.

“It’s also an indication the signage sector is performing positively in the post-pandemic landscape. It’s been a whirlwind of a year, but we’ve got so many exciting projects still to come, and I look forward to further successes in 2022.”
