Communicate Marketing, NorwichPolar Manufacturing Case Study



Polar Manufacturing Ltd (PML) is one of the most innovative and technologically advanced manufacturers and designers of composite products in the UK.

It produces affordable, precision engineered products and materials for the automotive, defence, motorsport, renewable energy, communication and marine sectors (as well as many other specialist sectors).
Polar Manufacturing
The company was previously called Polar Compositesand renamed in late 2011 to reflect the company's ability to manufacture all parts of a composite product, not just the composite material.

PML also invested in new machinery and facilities worth over £100,000, bought in a new Sales Executive and had ambitious plans for growth in 2012/2013.


Although some marketing had been produced in the past, a marketing plan, detailed budget breakdown and strategy to meet their ambitious plans for growth in 2012 and 2013 had not been produced.

Communicate Marketing were asked to help produce a marketing plan with these key objectives and the marketing materials to support the plan:

  • •  Create a unified brand online (including new website) and in print for the purpose of supporting a new Sales Executive and as a point of contact for all marketing activity throughout 2012.
  • •  Increase brand awareness to core market segments by Dec 2012.
  • •  Increase contact with potential clients to generate more leads for the Sales Executive by Dec 2012.


PMLs 2012 turnover and profit was the biggest in its history, with these key marketing results:

  • •  Website enquiries have gone up substantially, with some high profile and quality leads generated – especially from core, target market segments such as automotive and defence.
  • •  The change of company name and services provided has been communicated effectively via PR and SEO. Searches tracked on Google show that 6x more people were searching for Polar Manufacturing than Polar Composites (Dec 2012).
  • •  Communicate have managed the rebranding and maintained a consistent look and feel across all marketing activity.
  • •  Communicate have worked closely with sales team to identify and target key audiences effectively.


Communicate produced:

  • •  Marketing plan, budgeting and strategy – including researching and identifying the key target audiences .
  • •  New website designed and built with ecommerce section.
  • •  Pay Per Click (Google Adwords) advertising and Search Engine Optimisation (SEO)implemented to help promote the site.
