Jargon PR has today acquired UK based Public Relations and technical content specialists GloHouse Media to bolster its sector specialist knowledge, service set and international reach. This is the third acquisition completed by Jargon PR in the past 12 months.
GloHouse Media specialises in processing and packaging industrial automation (including vision and robotics) and biogas renewable energy markets. A small international agency, the firm has sixteen retained clients across both markets and provides comms strategy, technical content, PR, marketing, multimedia, social media and lead-gen data services.
The GloHouse brand will be integrated as a specialist division of Jargon PR and follows the acquisition and integration of Vantage Marketing in November 2020 and of Souter PR in June 2021, which also saw the agency create its new Manchester office.
The acquisition will see Jargon PR increase its specialist knowledge in IoT automation and green energy, two industry sectors it already serves.
Jargon PR will welcome a seven-person team into the agency, led by GloHouse Founder, Kirsty Sharpe. Kirsty is a PR veteran with more than 20 years agency experience and joins Jargon PR as Associate Director, reporting to CEO, Simon Corbett.
The acquisition of GloHouse Media will support the agency’s growth trajectory, helping it smash through the £2m fee income milestone this financial year. Jargon PR will welcome GloHouse’s impressive portfolio of international clients including Fortress Technology, HRS Heat Exchangers, and Omron.
“The acquisition of GloHouse Media is another exciting strategic step forward,” said Simon Corbett, CEO at Jargon PR. “The GloHouse team adds valuable knowledge, experience and insights in advanced manufacturing which will strengthen our overall proposition. Over the next 18 months, we plan to strengthen our capabilities further with new digital services and by expanding the geographical footprint of the agency.”
“Combining our industry 4.0 and sustainability sector knowledge with the broader digital PR services offered by Jargon PR provides an unparalleled depth of services for the group’s tech trending clients,” said Kirsty Sharpe.
“Our multi-market client base is the perfect compliment to Jargon PR, who already run international campaigns for more than 50 retained clients. We look forward to joining the agency at such an exciting time in its growth story.”
