Locally grown marketing agency, IMS Marketing, is this month celebrating ten successful years in business. Set up in Spring 2007 by Claregalway native, Kevin Moran, the company has seen substantial growth since its inception, doubling its workforce to 12 in the past 18 months.
When asked about the secret to the company’s success over the years and especially given the uncertain economy during which the company was set up, Kevin Moran, Managing Director, said, “I set the business up in 2007 at the height of the so called ‘Bertie Boom’ but it wasn’t long before the collapse came, a matter of months in fact. We not only survived the recession that followed but have steadily grown in the years since.”
“We have a wonderful team of 12 marketing professionals who are as passionate about marketing as I am and over the past 10 years, we have built up a loyal client base in Ireland and abroad. Without the dedication of the entire team and our devoted clients, we certainly would not be where we are today – and for that I am very grateful.”
In the past two years IMS Marketing has been responsible for the implementation of marketing programmes for companies in over 16 different countries throughout the world.
“What makes us unique is our focus on technical products and services. We work with organisations in sectors such as the med tec, ICT, Healthcare, Electronics, and Precision Engineering and help them develop their business nationally and internationally. We have a fantastic relationship with our clients and it is this focus that has helped us achieve the successes we have to date.”
In February 2016, the company relocated from Claregalway to a new custom-designed headquarters in Howley Square, Oranmore and has since added six new members to the team with a further three planned hires before the end of 2017.
“There is no other agency in Ireland that has the experience to work with companies of a technical nature developing their business nationally and internationally that we have gained. We understand these companies and furthermore understand their customers and what they want. This enables us to deliver a marketing strategy that delivers real results,” explained Kevin.
