Ast celebrates a long-standing working relationship with Reays…

We are proud to have supported Cumbrian coach provider, Reays, during their period of business growth. From fitting their large fleet of coaches with transport branding, to creating signage for their new depot, we’ve been on hand to supply and manufacture all their branding needs. Since it was established in 1985, Reays has grown to become Cumbria’s largest independent bus and coach operator. An award-winning family company, Reays now has a fleet of more than 100 vehicles and a workforce of 160 employees. They pride themselves on combining 21st century technology with a personal touch. Starting with just a small fleet of mini coaches, Reays now offers the very best in luxury coach travel across the UK and Europe. We have worked with Reays since 2007, designing, supplying and fitting all of their bus and van livery. With the opening of their new Lillyhall depot, Reays appointed Ast to produce and fit all of the new signage for the depot and design and print a range of advertising banners to support the opening.

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 is already busy helping us with and we look forward to continuing our work with them in the future.”
