Bosal LogoPreston-based supplier Bosal Automotive & Industrial Components Ltd has appointed leading automotive agency Hornby Whitefoot PR to promote its leisure and automotive portfolios.

Following a successful pitching process, Hornby Whitefoot has been hired by Bosal to oversee its UK aftermarket communications, and to educate and engage with trade and consumer audiences.

The company’s towbars are also directly available to the consumer market.

Rob Theckston, Managing Director at Bosal Automotive and Industrial Components Ltd said: “When we initially met with Hornby Whitefoot, it was apparent that they really understand our business and the industry in which we operate. What resonated with us the most was not just their enthusiasm but our shared view of where we currently are in the market and where we need to be.”

“We have no doubt that through their strong media ties we shall be able to positively communicate and engage with a wider audience.”

Kimberley Hornby, Managing Director at Hornby Whitefoot added: “We are delighted we’ve been chosen to work with one of the UK’s leading component suppliers. We have come onboard at an exciting time for Bosal, as it plans to further increase its presence in the leisure sector due to growing demand for its towbars, roof bars and cycle carriers, alongside its expanding automotive portfolio. This means we’re fully primed to deliver some great PR for them so we can get their message out into the relevant markets, media and wider business community.”
