Published 14th Jan 2016 by Events

​Huddersfield marketing consultancy and Chamber member, KC Communications has been appointed by Hornsea based security manufacturer, Heald Ltd to expand their global marketing strategy.

One of the leaders in their field, Heald design, manufacture and install a range of award winning vehicle mitigation systems that are distributed worldwide. Products include bollards, road-blockers and barriers that aim to prevent criminal organisations from carrying out targeted attacks on high profile sites such as embassies, airports and shopping centres.

The contract will see KC Communications taking care of Heald’s full marketing remit. Already the partnership has seen Heald obtain the ability to use the ‘Made in Britain’ marque which enables Heald to showcase that their full suite of products are designed and manufactured in Britain, which is a key USP for the business along with Managing Director, Debbie Heald being nominated for two Northern Power Women Awards.

Debbie Heald, Managing Director of Heald Ltd, commented: “We were immediately impressed with KC Communications and are excited to be working alongside them to help propel Heald’s global reach further. We have already started to see results following the implementation of the marketing strategy in early December. 2016 is an exciting time for Heald which will see the launch of new products and we are confident that KC Communications will support our growth plans.”

Katrina Cliffe, Managing Director of KC Communications added: “Having met Debbie at the Forward Ladies Awards in 2015 I was immediately impressed with her achievements and commitment to the continued growth of Heald. It is a pleasure to be working with not only an innovative organization but alongside a fellow female entrepreneur. We have already forged strong relationships with various members of the team and we look forward to working alongside Heald to make 2016 their best year yet.”

Both MD’s, Debbie Heald and Katrina Cliffe were shortlisted for various categories in the Forward Ladies Women in Business Awards last year in Newcastle, where they met and forged a strong business relationship.

The latest appointment for Lindley based KC Communications follows a successful year in business for the local marketing consultancy, which was set up in 2014 by Managing Director Katrina Cliffe.

The company also recently secured a contract with Huddersfield Community Trust who operate a number of services from it’s location at The Zone. It also has a number of other new business opportunities in the pipeline and is actively looking to recruit an apprentice later this year in order to fulfil client demand.
