“When I was tasked with finding a PR agency, I knew who I wanted to work with. Having previously worked with Midnight, I knew from experience that their team would go out of their way to get to know Trethowans; the people in the business and what we have to offer. Although we’re based in the South, our clients are country-wide and with Midnight’s contacts they find us opportunity for coverage in publications across the UK, as well as boosting our regional presence. We take pride in working with likeminded businesses who exhibit similar values to our people; no nonsense and no egos. Midnight are a fantastic extension to our marketing team who exhibit those values too…”
