PR Experts Set To Drive Haulier's Success

NEWCASTLE-based marketing and public relations (PR) agency ramarketing is set to oil the wheels of success for Scottish haulier Grampian Continental, after landing a PR contract to help promote the firm’s first base in the North of England.

The Aberdeen-based oil and gas transport specialist has invested £70,000 in a new base in Bedlington to complement its offices in Holland and Italy, expand its trade lanes and hook up with ferry links to mainland Europe.

The company, which was voted Scotland’s European Haulier of the Year 2012, has appointed ramarketing as its England-based PR partner, marking the latest in a string of contract wins for the agency, which last year trebled in size and won the North East Chartered Institute of PR award for Outstanding Small Consultancy of the Year.

Gavin Murray, sales director at Grampian Continental, said: “This is an exciting time for us, and we are confident that the team at ramarketing will use their expertise and contacts to really put us on the map and achieve our aim of opening up new markets and taking our turnover from £15m to the £20m mark in the next few years.”

Set up by Raman Sehgal in 2009, ramarketing specialises in marketing, PR, social media, design and search engine optimisation and its clients include high-profile businesses such as SCM Pharma, Onyx Scientific, Natural Hero and The Specials Laboratory.

The rapidly growing business has added six new clients to its portfolio since the New Year and has taken on several new consultants to support the increased workload.

Raman said: “We are very pleased to have attracted a client from Scotland as it demonstrates that our reputation and ability to deliver successful campaigns for our clients is growing beyond the North East.

“We are very much looking forward to helping Grampian establish a North East base and grow its European business, which in turn will create jobs and attract investment to our region.”
