Thursday, 07 March 2013

Beattie Communications continues to strengthen its presence in the north with a raft of B2B account wins as commercial laundry and dishwashing specialist, JLA, property developer, Caddick Developments, and the Federation of Small Businesses have all appointed the agency in recent weeks.

JLA, based in Ripponden, is the country’s leading supplier of commercial laundry and dishwashing products, serving sectors ranging from hospitals and care homes to gyms and spas. Beattie has been brought on board to boost the company’s profile in its 40th year, and has already successfully launched a new division of the company, JLA Medical.

Beattie beat off competition from two other agencies to win a major brief from Federation of Small Businesses’ Member Benefits department. The agency’s Manchester and Leeds offices have been brought on board to drive membership throughout 2013, as well as promote the extensive package of benefits on offer.

Victoria Walker, director at Beattie Communications’ said: “I believe that the team at Beattie has some of the best B2B experience in the north and could not be better placed to generate coverage for the FSB, JLA and Caddick Developments. With collectively more than 30 years in the B2B PR sector, our clients can be confident that they are in expert hands.

“Over the past 12 months we have seen both our Manchester and Leeds offices grow from strength to strength with several new clients coming on board and a swath of new additions to the team. JLA, the Federation of Small Businesses and Caddick Developments are setting the standard for 2013 and we are confident that many more will follow suit.”

Construction and civil engineering company, Caddick Developments, boasts a property profile spanning the UK, and   Beattie’s specialist property team, Only Property, will work closely with the Caddick team to increase its visibility in its sector while also garnering support for its developments at a local level. Only Property currently handles media relations, stakeholder engagement and consultation for more than 10 nationwide construction, housing and lettings projects.

John Bywater, MD at Caddick Developments commented: "We're looking forward to working with Beattie Communications. PR will play an important role for the Caddick Group in 2013 as we reinforce our brands across the country, take on exciting contracts and work with new clients. Beattie will ensure Caddick Developments is synonymous with quality developments across the country, able to invest in new sites and new development partnerships."
