Precision gear manufacturer appoints technical PR firm
supplier of motion control products Harmonic Drive
has appointed technical and technology
PR agency Stone Junction
to handle its UK media relations. Harmonic Drive, which provides
strainwave gears and transmission equipment to the aerospace, military
and broadcast sectors, has also commissioned Stone Junction to produce
regular e-mail newsletters, advice in its SEO strategy and provide some
social media activity.
Harmonic Drive AG has production facilities in Germany, USA and Japan with daughter companies across Europe in UK, Italy, Spain, France and Switzerland. The company specialises meeting the needs of bespoke customer requirements, component sets, units, gearboxes, planetary gears and servo actuators.
With the company’s comprehensive experience in the field, Harmonic Drive’s UK division has a clear focus on the design and development of precision gears and actuation. The company describes itself as a technological leader in the field of high precision motion control.
Harmonic Drive selected Stone Junction after a strong recommendation from another of the agency’s clients, Olsen Engineering. “Over the past few months we’ve heard extremely good things about Stone Junction’s work for Olsen,” commented Graham Mackrell, managing director of Harmonic Drive.
“It became clear to us that we needed a company that understands our target media sector – Stone Junction is that company. We’ve seen a lot of evidence that the agency has the ability to influence the defence, aerospace and machine building industries that we’re focussing on,” concluded Mackrell.
“We’re really enthusiastic about working with Harmonic Drive. The campaign we’re planning will allow us to address some interesting topics in media sectors ranging from broadcast and marine to oil and gas,” explained Richard Stone managing director of Stone Junction.
Stone Junction’s client base continues to broaden with the company now servicing 16 businesses, five of which based in Staffordshire.
