Industrial & Manufacturing

Strategic marketing communications for industrial  & manufacturing businesses.

Rapid changes on all fronts are keeping even the brightest owners, executives and boards up at night. Business environment, consumer expectations, shifting sands of political and public favor, ageing infrastructure and social license are but a few factors. Technology disruption has transformed many traditional businesses in ways that could not be predicted 10 years ago, it has provided the customer with an increasing variety of options and control. Costs spiral as corporations’ struggle to reach fickle B2B and B2C customers, marketing is more challenging, diverse and unpredictable.

Mature businesses are in a fight to maintain relevance and market share — they are acquiring and merging in an attempt to dominate the market and gain control of their future. Small and mid-cap businesses are attacked from all sides by smaller, agile, innovative upstarts. Businesses find it hard to pivot quickly, they can often find their product mix out-of-date or trumped in the battle for features and services. Size can be a benefit or a hindrance, even the most respected businesses can lose touch with their audience and realize too late they are losing relevance. This is where we help.
