Maryanne Stokes Limited to reveal brand change at GLEE 2016

by | Sep 5, 2016 | Community, News | 0 comments

Maryanne Stokes Limited, the solution-led service consortium which focuses on the garden industry, is to re-brand simply as MSL, and is unveiling its new identity at GLEE, stand number 20 J38. The re-brand follows four years of constant expansion both in terms of client business and associated service providers since launch in 2012.

Director Maz Stokes explained, ?Ever since I devised the MSL concept and watched it grow into the success I knew it would be, the philosophy has always been firstly to enjoy the work we do and secondly to ensure that the company can supply expertise across all the services we offer. In the beginning the company?s point of difference over other agencies was my own personal knowledge of the garden industry so it made sense to develop that into the Maryanne Stokes brand. Four years on MSL is truly a consortium of associate service providers who all know the garden sector within their particular field of experience. So it is time to develop the brand into something more corporate.?

MSL now offers industry-specific services covering NPD, offline and online marketing, public relations, social media, research, sales, HR, training, legal support, operations and logistics, distribution, consolidation and freight.

?In fact,? adds Maz, ?we provide everything that a garden retail supplier may need to develop its business! The company is going from strength to strength and I am delighted and humbled to have such great clients – from small start-ups to large corporates throughout the garden sector.?

MSL is based in Somerset just off the A303 between Wincanton and Yeovil. Associate companies include iPad catalogue app and B2B eCommerce specialist, Aspin; home and garden marketing and PR specialist, Brookes & Co; graphic and web design agency, CM Ventures; law firm, Kidwells; creative PR and social media gurus, Rabbit Attack PR and business support agency, Sharper Thinking Associates. Maz Stokes has also recently acquired Luca?s Garden, the consumer facing garden gift-ware company.

To find out why we should work together, come and visit us on our stand 20 J38, we have super special packages and services to offer you. This will be the 4th year of exhibiting at GLEE for the Maryanne Stokes team and we look forward to seeing you next week.
