Press Release – Taking Advantage of Brexit

The Collective Marketing Agency has issued an upbeat message regarding the future of the manufacturing sector in Dorset, amidst the uncertainty surrounding Brexit and the comments made recently by the Chancellor Sajid Javid.

The Collective, which works extensively within the engineering and manufacturing sector, believes that most small to medium manufacturing businesses will be able to adapt to whatever changes Brexit brings and use the advantages to their benefit. Simon Harrison, Marketing Director for The Collective, comments:

“Whilst acknowledging there will be some initial uncertainty, we are confident the sector will quickly adapt to a changing environment. In Britain we are incredibly resilient and this resilience will show through in how we tackle the challenges Brexit introduces.”    

This confidence is borne out from some of the work The Collective has been involved in within the last 18 months. Whilst supporting key engineering businesses across Dorset such as Aish Technologies, Norco, Field International, PRF Composites and AGI, the company has experienced some of the world-leading technologies Dorset companies are pioneering, that will ensure a bright future for the sector. Simon comments:

We have produced videos and animations, and been involved in other marketing initiatives, that demonstrate Dorset businesses are at the forefront of developing technology, particularly within key market sectors such as Aerospace, Defence and Composite manufacturing. Some of these products have been developed against this backdrop of uncertainty and yet the businesses are still focused on the future, which is brilliant to see and be involved in.”

Alongside its complete in-house video production capability, The Collective specialises in offering a full marketing support service to manufacturing companies, including social media, website design and build, digital marketing and marketing strategy. The company was established nearly 6 years ago by Simon, Managing Director James Howes and Commercial Director Zoe Howes, who all had significant experience working in the industrial sector before establishing The Collective in 2014. James echo’s the sentiment that the future for Dorset manufacturing is bright and also recognizes there are opportunities for companies to seize the initiative:

“I am constantly amazed by the expertise and strength of companies we work with. We all know Brexit has taken a long time to happen, but now it is within touching distance, manufacturing companies can use this milestone to reflect on whether their marketing is producing the results they need it to. And if it isn’t, what can be done to rectify that.”  

The Collective, located on the Nuffield Industrial Estate in Poole, is ideally placed to serve the local manufacturing sector. In addition, the company operates a Satellite office in Birmingham.
