Two Staffordshire companies involved in international design and fit out for the leisure industry have appointed Lichfield-based Ian Strachan Communications Ltd to handle their press relations.
Rugeley-based GMP Design and Kribensis Leisure Contracts have brought Ian Strachan Communications on board to raise their profile and help promote forthcoming product launches and contract wins.
Both companies, based on the Towers Business Park, were established by Neil Morten. He set up GMP Design 20 years ago and it has become one of the leading bar, restaurant and club interior design companies, with major contracts throughout the UK and Europe.
Neil Morten established Kribensis 10 years ago to carry out interior fit out work in the leisure market.
He said, “Although we have had some tremendous successes, designing and fitting out high profile venues all over the world, we haven’t blown our own trumpets. However, we believe that people should know about the exciting work we do from our offices in Rugeley, and there are few PR agencies in Staffordshire to rival Ian Strachan Communications in terms of raising awareness.”
“We chose Ian Strachan Communications because of its wide-ranging experience and contacts and its no-nonsense, value-for-money approach to PR, which will fit this company’s culture well,” he added.
Ian Strachan Communications Ltd was set up 12 years ago by Ian Strachan, formerly corporate affairs director at Birmingham commercial vehicle manufacturer LDV and corporate communications director at Rover Group. Major ISC clients include Mansell Construction and Lambert Smith Hampton.
Ian Strachan said, “GMP and Kribensis are fascinating companies involved in ground-breaking design projects around the world. I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to help the companies raise their profiles.”
