Office expansion and awards success for Plum in Somerset

Award-winning PR and marketing agency, Plum Communications & PR, has announced the opening of a new office in Somerset to accommodate the continued growth of the business, hot on the heels of winning a Business of the Year award at the Somerset Business Awards.

The company will be moving into a newly converted and bespoke designed office at Purn House Farm in Bleadon, which will accommodate the growing team at Plum. The business was founded in 2010 with just Karen in the business and currently has a core team of four and further appointments will be made over the coming months.

This is very exciting news for Plum, as it signals their continued success in a highly competitive industry. Managing Director of Plum Communications & PR, Karen Morledge comments:

“I am delighted to announce our move to new premises and the team and I are looking forward to moving in later this month, which will enable us to further expand our services in the local area and beyond. Purn House Farm is already home to some great businesses with whom we already collaborate with and the developers, Alistair and Rob House, have been fantastic in meeting all of our requirements for our new office.”

Plum was crowned a finalist in the Somerset Business Awards in the highly contested Business of the Year, 1-10 employees category and the promotional video clip from the awards ceremony on the 24th October can be viewed here: where Karen Morledge talks of the office move.

The new environmentally-friendly and fully accessible office accommodation is being developed from a former storage warehouse and will provide an open plan office environment, kitchen and on-site parking facilities for staff and clients and is equipped with the latest IT technologies to ensure an efficient and effective working environment.
