New look: Kara Rose
New look: Kara Rose

A Lancashire-based PR agency has its sights set for growth this year after a move to larger offices and the launch of a recruitment campaign.

Kara Rose PR starts 2016 as KRPR with the launch of a new brand, new website and new offices at Arundel House at the Ackhurst Business Park in Chorley.

Founded in 2007 KRPR was formerly based at the Chorley Business and Technology Centre but moved to its new home late last year ready for growth.

The company began when owner Kara Rose was approached by national hotel chain Queens Moat Houses to handle all of the consumer PR, trade PR and crisis management for the account and starting out as a sole trader.

Kara said: “Since conception Kara Rose PR has grown organically through referrals and word of mouth.

“But over the last two years with a growing team and a host of new business wins including national consumer brands like Pork Farms and Wall’s Pastry, it became apparent that we needed a fresh brand, new website and larger offices to reflect our growth to date.

“The new KRPR brand does and says just what we want it to but is also still in keeping with the origins of the business.

“It is increasingly evident that KRPR is successfully competing with city centre agencies, attracting international and national brands from across the UK; and proving our worth by executing award-winning campaigns.

“Client feedback has shown that it is not just our big ideas and enviable media contacts that attracted them to us but it is the all important personal approach that we take too that ticks all the boxes for them.

“Nine years on and it felt that it was the right time to evolve to reflect our growth and exciting plans for 2016.”
