Jigsaw Photoshoot

The Purple Team recently carried out a photoshoot at Jigsaw Transport for new projects that will be launching soon. 

It was a busy day at the head office in Ashby-de-la-Zouch and with a wide variety of shots taken, we are excited to see the end results!

Fun day filming at Mercedes-Benz

The Purple Team recently spent a day filming at Mercedes-Benz Trucks to support the imminent launch of a new, national GenuineParts repositioning project.

“A long but very productive day – our client Sam was a bit of an expert and very well versed which made our job so much easier – I think this was a record for the least outtakes in the two hour ‘talking head’ session!” said Debbi Hutt, Director at Purple Marketing.

Purple joins C M Downton

Downton moves to Purple for their Marketing & PR

C M Downton is one of the UK’s leading independent logistics firms with over 600 tractor units and 1,800 trailers operating out of ten major distribution centres across the UK.

Downton is the parent company of Jigsaw Transport; a 4th party logistics provider offering large-scale managed transport solutions, who have been a client of Purple’s for more than 5 years.

This is an exciting opportunity for Purple and one that we are really looking forward to. Our experience and expertise in the logistics arena means we can hit the ground running to fully support and enhance Downton’s plans for growth and continued leadership in the warehouse and distribution sector.

Purple joins The Cartwright Group

We are delighted to be appointed by the Cartwright Group as their marketing partner.

The privately owned family business – based in Cheshire – is the UK’s leading CV body and trailer manufacturer. Trading since 1952, Cartwright provides a complete solution from design, manufacture and conversions to fleet management, finance and rental.

Purple recently worked with the Cartwright Group to secure them a win at the Motor Transport Awards in one of the most popular and competitive categories, Apprenticeship of the Year.

We are thrilled to be working with Mark and the Team at Cartwright – who recently were recognised as a Sunday Times ‘Top 10 Rising Company’ – and to have the opportunity to apply our specialist CV skills and experience.

Another win at MT Awards!

Last nights industry leading Motor Transport Awards resulted in a  fantastic evening for one of Purple’s clients, The Cartwright Group, who took centre stage in one of the most popular and competitive categories, Apprenticeship of the Year.  Purple worked closely with Mark Cartwright, Rich Anderson and a number of former/existing apprentices to pull together the winning submission. “It was a fantastic result for all at  Cartwright and we really appreciate your excellent support and guidance.” said Rich following a rather late evening of well earned celebrations.

Another Great Show for Purple

Our client, Jigsaw Transport, was again highly complimentary of the 50m sq stand we designed, built and support-hosted at the NEC last week. The three-day exhibition – aimed at decision makers in the transport industry – provided the perfect proving ground for our client to showcase their unique transport solutions. Known for our excellent barista skills, we managed to attract a number of influential  existing as well as prospective customers onto our clients stand.

“Purple did it again. We arrived in time for the opening on the first day to find an impressive stand, fully stocked and ready to go. Having worked with Purple for a number of years, I know I can leave them to come up with the goods, from stand design & build, to giveaways and manning schedules, they have it all covered with great attention to detail. This year’s stand outshone all previous and we attracted some very interesting people, so all round a huge success!” Andy Humpherson, MD, Jigsaw Transport. 

New Account Exec at Purple

Purple Marketing is pleased to welcome Laura Riley to the team. Based locally, Laura joins us from an online sales and marketing environment, prior to which she was a marketeer in the automotive sector and therefore brings with her a wealth of sector relevant digital marketing & communications skills.

In her spare time, Laura will be found in the gym training for Wolf Runs! So, with Belle (our resident personal trainer), Kate (our ex-Olympic squad badminton player) and Debbi our keen cyclist – Purple has the makings of a great Tough Mudder Team – is there anyone out there that would like to challenge us?

Kate Joins Team Purple

Purple Marketing welcomes Kate Robertshaw to the team. Originally from Leeds, Kate moved down to Milton Keynes a few years ago to pursue a career with Team GB Badminton. As well as working in the Marketing Department for GB Badminton, Kate was ranked Number 3 (Womens Doubles Badminton) in the UK, representing Team England in the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow 2014 where she won a Silver medal. Kate is still an active Badminton player but has chosen to focus on a marketing and communications career, and we are delighted she has joined Team Purple! Only a few days in and Kate is already making a positive contribution through her enthusiastic, creative and ‘can-do’ approach to supporting our clients.

New Client Rebrands!

The recent merger of Red Clam and Grantley created a great opportunity to rebrand and raise the profile of Guildford’s elite property sales, letting and finding agency. We are delighted to be working with The Grantley Group of companies, who are more than pleased  with their new corporate group branding.

“The design guys at Purple came up with some great conceptual work and the final result looks absolutely stunning. It’s hugely reflective of our company ethos; it’s bold, simple and innovative with great visual presence. We are very excited about our plans for The Grantley Group and have engaged with Purple Marketing to exploit local marketing and communication opportunities. We offer a wide range of high end property services in the Surrey area and are confident that Debbi and her team will add value to our sales activities and help drive the business to a whole new level.” Said Stephen Frost, Director of The Grantley Group.

Award Submission takes Centre Stage!

Purple Marketing helped elevate another client by researching and preparing their awards submission for the industry’s event of the year, The Motor Transport Awards 2015. The Grosvenor Hotel in London hosted the event and it’s where everybody who is anybody within the CV industry meets to celebrate the successes of their customers, colleagues and suppliers. Our client, Northside Truck & Van from Bradford was over the moon when they took centre stage to collect the Apprenticeship of the Year Award.

Our expertise in the commercial vehicle industry meant we were able to prepare a submission with minimal but factual input from the client, that was highly industry relevant, impressed the judges and following the win, provided Northside with a whole new marketing and communication platform locally and nationally. The words of the judges, “This was a stand-out entry!” Praise indeed.
