Ast Signs’ celebrates a long-standing, working relationship with Reays

From fitting their large fleet of coaches with branding, to creating signage for their new depot, we’ve been on hand to supply quality branding for Reays during the Cumbrian coach provider’s business growth.

Since it was established in 1985, Reays has grown to become Cumbria’s largest independent bus and coach operator, now with a fleet of more than 100 vehicles and a workforce of 160 employees. Reays is an award-winning family business that combines 21st century technology with a personal touch. Having started with a small fleet of mini coaches, Reays is now renowned for providing the very best in luxury coach travel, while offering the latest in safety and comfort across the UK and in Europe.
We’ve been working with Reays since 2007 and our team at Ast currently designs, prints and fits all Reays’ coach, bus and van livery.
A recent project has seen our team widen its branding work for Reays and produce and fit signage to the coach operator’s new Lillyhall depot. Our team also worked to design and print a range of supporting advertising banners to support the opening of the depot.

Kerrie Allison from Reays explained; “ Having worked successfully with Ast for many years now, it was a no-brainer for us to contact them about printing and fitting the signage for our new Lilyhall depot.
“We wanted to ensure that the signage was eye-catching from the roadside, durable and long-standing - Ast went above and beyond to deliver this for us. We worked directly with Nathan and Laura at Ast who, as always, were absolutely brilliant. They listened to our brief carefully, liaised with their in-house fitters, and ensured the end-to-end process was both attentive and efficient.”
She added, “Being able to have Ast as our ‘one stop shop’ for all of Reays’ branding makes our lives so much easier. They are always on hand, whatever the project - we have some exciting things in the pipeline which Ast are already busy helping us with and look forward to continuing our work with them in the future.”
