Stoke-on-Trent signage firm A2B Signs and Graphics has revealed that a recent £50,000 cash injection from Michelin Development has allowed it to enter into new markets and create a number of new jobs.

A2B Signs and Graphics specialises in bespoke signage, vehicle and fleet livery, wide format print, exhibition displays and labels

The funds, matched by a grant from Stoke-on-Trent City Council, has enabled A2B to make a £150,000 investment in a finishing table.

The new piece of kit has allowed the company to produce larger-format printed materials on almost any substrate. Such has been the impact of the machine that the firm expects turnover to reach more than £1.2m and staff numbers to almost double from 13 people to 25 within three years.

James Machin, the founder of A2B, comments: “The new machine is transforming our business and enabling us to do much more for our clients.

“We’re working across the length and breadth of the UK and Northern Ireland and we’ve also won work in the Middle East.

“The support we have had from Michelin Development has helped make this all possible. It’s a great service and we would highly recommend it to businesses looking to grow.”

Michelin Development offers subsidised, unsecured loans of up to £50,000 for projects with the potential to create sustainable jobs. Applicants must employ less than 250 people and be involved in manufacturing, engineering or business-to-business services.
