Direction of communication for the Go Ultra Low Nottingham ULEV Experience project. Automotive Comms directed the marketing and communication for Nottingham’s ULEV Experience, funded by Go Ultra Low Nottingham, as part of a consortium of partners including Cenex, the Energy Saving Trust and DriveElectric. The aim of the project was to increase the adoption of ultra-low emission vehicles (ULEVs) in Nottingham. The ULEV Experience offered awareness-raising events, fleet reviews and ULEV loans to businesses in Nottingham, in order to ensure that people gained the best advice and also experienced driving the latest electric vehicles.
Electric Nation was a project to trial a smart charging solution to help local electricity networks to cope with growing numbers of electric vehicles, with partners including Western Power Distribution, EA Technology and DriveElectric. Automotive Comms directed all communication for this three-year project, including elements such as strategy, website, written content, photography and videos, event support and PR. We subsequently supported the vehicle to grid phase of the project. The communication for the project won an Award for ‘Marketing Project of the Year’.
Automotive Comms works with virtually all of the leading automotive and low carbon automotive organisations in the UK, including the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP), which is now the Zemo Partnership. We have provided marketing, communication and PR support, including writing, photography and design for a report about the UK’s green buses, and support for the LowCVP Low Carbon Champions Awards, including assistance with press releases and liaison with industry media.
Automotive Comms carries out a wide range of communication work for the Northern Automotive Alliance (NAA). This includes the writing and production of the NAA’s monthly e-newsletter, communication support for a wide range of NAA events such as the Annual Awards Dinner, and for other NAA projects such as STRIVE, an AMSCI-funded NAA/Bentley virtual reality design project.
Automotive Comms created a marketing strategy for Sigmatex, the world’s leading independent converter of carbon fibre, to help the global company achieve ambitious growth targets. We then implemented our recommendations with a range of marketing materials, including with the design and build of a new website, a 3D animated video, and new printed marketing materials – as well as copywriting, photography and PR. We also provided marketing support for the Sigmatex Lightweighting Excellence (LX) AMSCI project, which worked with three global car manufacturers to manufacture composite components in medium to high volumes at affordable costs.
