Shrewsbury-based consultancy Parker Ward has been appointed to handle marketing communications for international vacuum pump manufacturers, Busch (UK).
Parker Ward’s PR team will provide Telford-based Busch (UK) with a programme of media and public relations.
Tim Ward, Parker Ward’s managing director, said: “Busch (UK) is an international leader in its field and winning the PR contract is a feather in our cap.
“It proves once again that big, international companies based in Shropshire don’t have to head for London and other major cities to find the marketing communications skills and experience they need. It’s right here, on their doorstep.”
Busch (UK)’s marketing manager, Melissa Kelly-Jones, said: “Tim Ward is right, we are a big company operating around the world but we understand that geography has nothing to do with talent. Shropshire has a highly skilled marketing communications community – Parker Ward illustrates that point perfectly – and it makes good business sense to plug into it.”
