The Edge Expands

1st December 2017

Did you catch us on last week? An article all about the growth and expansion of Leading Edge. Read it here…

A creative design and display company, based in West Yorkshire, has doubled its staff to 40 after seeing a turnover increase by 133% to £3.5million this past year.

Located in Gomersal, Leading Edge – established seven years ago – is capitalizing on this growth with a Regional Growth Fund loan, which has enabled the company to purchase a state-of-the-art printer, new fabrication equipment and a five-vehicle addition to its installation fleet, bringing a total investment of £200,000 in the last six months.

Specializing in designing and producing display and graphics for retail, hospitality and construction industries, the team, led by founder and managing director Matthew Evans, reported a turnover of £1.5million in 2014 and has grown from a staff of four in 2008 to a 40-strong team today.

In 2015, the company recruited new fabricators, drivers, printers and fitters.

Boosting a deep list of clients including McDonalds, Card Factory, Soreen and tyre service ATS, Leading Edge and its growing team have achieved its widest ever national client base.

Matthew said: “From our West Yorkshire base, we are now independently delivering on contracts across the whole of the UK, including Northern Ireland.

“Our new super-wide printer produces graphics up to 3.2 metres wide and has a dual print facility which means we can produce more high impact, high quality artwork, faster than ever before.

“Retail contracts have to be delivered alongside other suppliers to strict deadlines which are created to minimise customer disruption. Our new facilities gives us greater flexibility and speed to meet these deadlines with our biggest ever team to fulfil on delivery and fitting.”

He added: “Our investment in new equipment continues our policy of keeping our services in house which continues full autonomy on every client project. It opens up new ways we can create vibrant and creative artwork for our clients and is helping us win previously out of reach contracts on a national scale.”
