The Collective, Dorset’s premier video & digital marketing agency for industry and the education sector, has opened a new office in Birmingham. The company aims to further expand its reach across the country and to take advantage of the many engineering and manufacturing companies based within the Midlands.

The Collective has seen strong growth over the last 12 months, particularly within its video and animation capability, and feels the time is now right to take the next step in expanding this capability targeting a wider geographical market.

Midlands manufacturing is regarded as being at the heart of the UK economy, with economic output figures of over £34bn, and key sectors including aerospace and automotive, as well as many others. Approximately 610,000 people are employed in the manufacturing industry across the Midlands region, highlighting the importance of the industry to the region as a whole.

Alongside its complete in-house video and photography capability, The Collective specialises in offering a full marketing support service to companies, including social media, website design and build, PR, literature design and marketing strategy. The company was established over 4 years ago and works extensively within the manufacturing and engineering industry including the defence, aerospace, marine, composite and power generation sectors.

The business has also built a strong presence within the education industry, designing and building websites for schools and producing a range of videos including values videos, teaching aids for schools and prospectus videos.

James Howes, Managing Director at The Collective, is delighted to be opening the new office in Birmingham:

“This is a real milestone for The Collective and something we have been keen to do for some time now. Having worked across the Midlands with diverse clients including Indestructible Paints and Dudley Associates, having a permanent base in Birmingham will allow us to better serve our local clients. We are excited to become involved in an area of the country that has huge potential, as focus shifts away from the traditional London and South East markets.”

The Collective’s new Midlands office is located within the Colmore Building in central Birmingham. The Colmore Building has 310,000 square ft of highly specified office space, arranged over ground, mezzanine and 12 upper floors.
