Allen Associates / Founded in 1994, Allen Associates is the largest Scottish based chemical and process engineering design consultancy serving the Scotch whisky and related industries.

Over recent years, the Stirling headquartered distillery designer has grown rapidly, building a strong reputation both at home and overseas. It now has its fingerprints on over one hundred distilleries, with active projects in 11 countries.

When we were tasked with telling the Allen Associates story, we looked to harness multiple communications channels to raise awareness. Working alongside design agency, Glowfish Creative, we produced a suite of content for the company’s new website and started from scratch to develop its social media presence.

We also ramped up awareness of the company through a targeted media relations campaign, focusing on both first person articles on industry ‘hot’ topics in key trade press and the wider release of news focused press articles.

As a result, Allen Associates social media presence is growing rapidly, with the PR team feeding edited content from the wider media relations and digital activity into the social channels.

External reaction to the PR push has been extremely positive with key stakeholders and partners now regularly engaging with the company through the various communications platforms.
