Integrated B2B marketing agency, Armstrong, is investing in growth after a successful start to the year.
The Chester-based agency has won two major global account wins and contract expansions; Knauf, one of the world’s largest independent building material manufacturers, and Kawneer, a manufacturer of architectural systems and products in North America and with growing presence in Europe.
Daniel Owen, CEO and founder of Armstrong, said: “Armstrong is off to a flying start in 2021 and has won the accounts for two global brands. We work with some of the world’s most important businesses across a number of critical supply chains, like glass, industrial vehicles and construction. Our clients are forward-looking and technologically advanced, and they look to us to deliver dynamic creative that reflects their progressive nature.”
The agency, which has appointed 15 new team members since the start of 2021, is growing its head count in response to the new client briefs, recruiting for eight new roles across design, development and account management. “Now, we’re looking for people who can bring their creative expertise to the table to deliver exceptional work for our clients,” Daniel added.
Other clients include Encirc, the UK’s largest manufacturer of container glass and Bucher Emhart Glass, Switzerland, the world’s largest manufacturer of hollow glass forming and inspection technology.
Daniel added: “We work with businesses which are excelling in their field. What this means from a creative point of view is that our team can really push the boundaries of B2B marketing – using the latest technology to bring their products to market. We work with leading companies in international markets with incredible stories to tell and we’re looking for people who can help us turn these stories into captivating marketing narratives.”
The 38-strong agency team delivers brand strategy and development, creative services, digital, and CGI and motion projects for its large client base. Armstrong is based in the Old Post Office building on St John Street in Chester, which it acquired in December 2019. The 1876 three-story building includes 12,000 square feet of office space and is currently being renovated to accommodate the growing team.
