New clients, new branding, new staff, new opportunities, and a significant anniversary – 2017 is already an exciting year for Smith Goodfellow PR. The specialist construction and manufacturing PR Consultancy is proud to be celebrating 20 years working with Kingspan Insulation, and welcomes Kingspan Insulated Panels back to its client portfolio, after re-acquiring the account following a 4-year break.
The latter half of 2016 proved to be a busy end to the year for the well-established Consultancy. The company was commissioned to build a new website, and create a brand refresh for Middlewich based Valsave Engineered Solutions, who specialise in solutions for the water, utilities, process, and chemical industries.
Work started with Kingspan Cleanroom Systems, whose products allow the construction of high performance cleanroom environments. Two other existing clients also requested significant additional work, which was completed by the end of the year.
2017 looks to be equally fruitful, as the campaigns kick off for all clients, including the two largest divisions of the Kingspan Group. Kingspan Insulated Panels is a leading manufacturer of highly efficient products and solutions for the building envelope, including structural products and insulated roof & wall panel systems.
Kingspan Insulation’s product range provides premium and high performance rigid insulation and insulated systems for building fabric and building services applications, such as for roofs, walls, floors, pipework, and HVAC ducts.
Throughout 2016 the SGPR team repeatedly set out on new challenges, the latest being a 24-hour, Harry Potter-themed bike ride. Two charities are benefitting from their self-inflicted discomfort: CRASH (the construction industry’s homeless and hospice charity) and The Wellspring (kitchen and resource centre for the homeless or vulnerable). A combined total of over £1,000 has been raised to date, with more events to come in 2017.
Cathy Barlow, Managing Director of Smith Goodfellow PR, said:
“2016 was a brilliant year with lots going on, and the team really showed what they are capable of. 2017 looks like being better yet. We are actively recruiting and look forward to inducting some new members of staff into our own particular brand of creativity, hard graft, teamwork, and of course a healthy dose of fun!”
Plans are in motion for more charity activities, campaign work, and a rebrand launch scheduled for May.
