Aro PR and Marketing has secured its first international client. The agency specialises in raising the profile of engineering, composites and scientific companies across the UK, and now also in Europe.
Billy McKenna, Aro’s Managing Director, said: “Aro has gone from strength to strength in the past six months, taking on several new clients and more than doubling our workforce. We have successfully launched both our marketing and awards application services after building a team of PRs, marketing managers, journalists, associate graphic designers, web builders and SEO professionals.”
Aro has experience in a range of industry awards including: the Queen’s Award for Enterprise; Make UK Awards (formerly EEF Future Manufacturing Awards); UK Private Business Awards, Composites UK Awards; The Manufacturer MX Awards; Electronics Weekly BrightSparks Awards, as well as an array of local business awards.
Aro has proven that distance is no object when it comes to supporting businesses across the aerospace, composites, medical, marine, automotive, nuclear and oil & gas industries.
Always keen to encourage local talent; for the past five years Aro has run a work placement scheme for students from Plymouth University, several of whom have gone on to graduate with a first-class degree. Aro’s first-ever PR and Marketing Apprentice will also be graduating from her course in 2020.
Billy McKenna continued: “We are proud to be working with our local community to give a year in industry to university students, or to offer an apprenticeship as an alternative to university. Our industry is about hands-on learning and the experience that a placement year or apprenticeship can offer is invaluable.”
Aro will be on stand K70 at the Advanced Engineering Show.
