Background

CGP sales are growing rapidly, thanks in part to the meticulously planned and executed marketing campaigns from our Sales & Marketing Department. As well as email marketing, social media, exhibitions and catalogues, we use direct marketing to reach many of our customers, sending out 400,000 mailshots each year. Produced by our in-house Marketing Production Team, these materials are carefully designed to deliver effective marketing messages whilst maintaining our unique brand identity.

We’re also launching a brand new responsive ecommerce website which will be managed day-to-day within Marketing Production using a Content Management System (CMS) and will be an essential tool for CGP to achieve our ambitious sales growth targets.
