Harrison EDS has seen forecourt flag and signage orders from some of motor trade’s biggest brands quadruple as the sector re-opened its dealerships to the public.
The business, which designs, supplies and installs flags, flagpoles and outdoor branding for motor retailers nationwide, reported a four-fold increase in orders between February and March.
The business says the rise in orders, driven by dealerships looking to get quality branding in place ahead of the re-opening of non-essential retail on April 12, has led to a healthy six-figure increase in revenues.
Harrison EDS sales and marketing director, Anthony Leonard, said: “With dealerships able to re-open to the public from April 12, we anticipated a rise in demand from the sector. However, the quadrupling of orders we experienced was beyond our expectations and reflects the confidence and positivity of the sector.”
All of the flagpoles supplied for use across car dealership forecourts come complete with a heavy-duty swivel arm mechanism and are designed and manufactured to the euro code of standards and a 2.5mm thickness. This ensures they can withstand windspeeds of 30mph and retain their structural integrity in adverse weather conditions.
Anthony continued: “We anticipate orders will continue to rise throughout the year, as lockdown measures ease and dealerships across the UK seek to ensure they have high-quality branding across all sites.”
