Vantage PR was selected for its in-depth understanding of Knauf Marmorit’s main target market, the architectural specification sector. The company was aiming to drive awareness for the brand in the UK market and assist in its ambitious sales growth objectives.



Since the trade PR campaign started, the press coverage has been extensive; the campaign has reached over one third of a million readers each month.

“We have been using Vantage PR for a year and a half now.  They have made a big contribution to our media presence both in print and online, and as a result a very valuable contribution to our overall marketing campaign.” commented Steve Webber, Product Manager. 

The building products public relations campaign from Vantage PR operates largely across four fronts: News stories about the company, information about newly introduced products, case study stories of applications and keeping a constant feed on social media platforms, such as Twitter.

Demonstrating how close Vantage PR gets to working with client management teams, Vantage proposed undertaking market research amongst Knauf Marmorit customers, specifiers and prospects.  The idea was welcomed by the client as a real means of identifying where the company is positioned in the market.  After initial sampling, a full roll-out of the market research has just been made and early responses are not only meaningful but very encouraging for the client. The final analysis enabled Knauf Marmorit to shape its future stance, marketing and trade PR from the comprehensive results that the market research provided.
