About Tony

Joined HFE:

I started working at HFE Signs in May 2014

My Role at HFE:

I’m one of the newest members of the team, and I was made to feel valued from day 1. My role, once the design has been produced and agreed with the customer, is to proof read and quality control the product before it gets the final magical touches and is shipped out to its new owners.

Brief professional background:

I have always been a hands-on type of guy. I left school and went into the construction and maintenance industry, working within the M.O.D. I also completed an 18 month apprenticeship in plumbing.

After 26 years I decided to have a career change and ended up in the security industry where I worked for 2 years. But my yearning to work with my hands brought me to HFE Signs – reigniting my passion for attention to detail.

Hobbies out of work:

I love spending time with my family, and at weekends I like to take my sports bike out on the country roads doing lots of charity ride-outs. When I’m not squashing flies on my visor, I enjoy model making and airbrush art.

Claims to fame:

Whilst in the construction industry, I was fortunate enough to land some big contracts working for celebrities (not to mention names – but, I would like to stress that Russ Abbotts dog WAS ok after running under the wheels of my van…. He just limped a bit afterwards) !!
