Piranha “Bucks” Economic Trend with Impressive Growth Figures
Posted on: March 2009
Piranha, one of Lancashire’s leading full service creative, internet and marketing agencies based in Preston has just announced a leap in turnover for the year ending in 2008 which goes against the current economic doom and gloom.
Piranha comprises of two separate limited companies, Piranha Advertising and Marketing Solutions and Piranha Internet and between them growth has grown 32% from £747,349 in 2007 to £988.238 in year ending 2008. Piranha advertising and marketing was established in 2001 and Piranha internet was launched in 2002.
The biggest growth has come in the division dealing with new media, web development, search engine optimisation and on-line marketing where turnover has almost doubled in the last two years to £224,000. Early indications show that the growth in new media business has accelerated during the first two months of 2009.
Much of the growth has come as a result of a number of large industrial client wins at the beginning of 2007 including Crane Valves, a world leader in the manufacture of HVAC and Industrial Valves and CE Services one of Cheshire’s leading IT support companies.
Piranha has grown steadily every year since 2001 and in 2003 won the North & Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce Outstanding New Business award.
Director Don Fryer said “These are undoubtedly challenging times and we have noticed a squeeze on margins and new business opportunities but our strategy of focusing on quality and providing a one stop all encompassing marketing support service has paid dividends. We have an excellent client retention rate and most of our new business is coming via recommendations which is testament to the quality and value we provide”.
