Plinkfizz is celebrating its third successive year as one of the Top 50 PR Agencies in the North of England.
The rankings, compiled by independent publisher Prolific North, are regarded as the definitive list of leading PR agencies in the region, and this is the third year that Plinkfizz has been featured – the only communications company from Staffordshire to make the list.
Having made its debut in the ranking in 2015 at 42, this year Plinkfizz is placed 40th based on overall business performance including financial information taken from companies house, staff headcount and client information.
Fiona Hawkins, owner and MD of Plinkfizz, said the result was a wonderful achievement especially considering the level of investment that the business has made in its staff, equipment and premises this year.
She said: “Being featured for a third year in the Prolific North Top 50 PR Agencies is a massive achievement. The list is compiled from more than 200 PR agencies before being whittled down to just 50.
“2016/17 has been a year of investment in the future for Plinkfizz. We’ve expanded our team by three people, invested in creative team planning software and the latest creative design software (Adobe creative cloud) and to support our increasing customer base as it grows in 2017/18. We’re currently recruiting more staff to support our continued growth and we’ve just bought our own office at Lyme Vale Court in Stoke-on-Trent.
“We’ve been trading for 14 years now, an achievement in itself in an industry as competitive as ours, and we’re lucky enough to work with a wonderful range of clients including JCB, Stairbox, Dukes Bailiffs, The City Learning Trust and Bowcock and Pursaill. All in all it’s great news to top what has been a good year all round for us.”
