Northern Flags and FaberExposize UK have announced that they have grown their combined workforce by over 25% in response to a highly successful second quarter. The Yorkshire-based sister companies described the growth as a statement of intent ahead of further growing their market share in 2022.

The wide-format specialists, which emerged from the pandemic in profit, say that the investment in their team was made in order to capitalise on the momentum they have built up in Q2 of 2021, which comprised some of the most successful months in the companies’ history.

Specific new additions to the team include an entirely new sales specialist department, an expansion of the marketing team and the launch of a brand new graduate influx programme. As well as this, the company has continued to add staff to its specialist finishing department with the arrival of new seamsters alongside investment in new machinery, including a more eco-friendly eyeletting machine and a high-speed hot air welder.  

Iain Clasper-Cotte, managing director of both Northern Flags and FaberExposize UK, commented, ‘I’m delighted to welcome our new team members to the Northern Flags and FaberExposize family and excited about how they’re going to contribute to further success for our company. Against all expectations, 2021 is turning out to be a stellar year for us, both in terms of financial results and industry recognition and I’m confident our growing staff family will only help to compound that success.

‘We identified quite a while ago that investing in staff development was a signpost towards achieving our five-year plan and launching our Momentum programme, in-house management training for promising junior employees, was one of our first step towards this. With our new graduate influx programme, we’re delighted to help talented recent university graduates take the first steps on their career path, in what is currently an unsettled economic climate.’
