Leading design agency sets its sights on expansion in Gainsborough
The Lincolnshire digital design agency KAL Group has announced exciting expansion plans - after seeing its staff numbers more than double over the last five years to cater for the firms growing client list.
The company, which has won a number of high profile business awards, moved to offices at The Pattern Store at Marshall's Yard in Gainsborough in 2009 with a team of nine.
Now managing director Andrew Wood heads up a team of 24, and the company has renewed its lease and extended its space at the town centre office and retail development which opened in 2007.
KAL specialises in providing award winning marketing services to the niche mobile leisure industry which has grown in recent years.
The sector makes up around 75 per cent of the KAL’s clients and the agency was recently named as the number one agency for this specialism.
KAL has expanded from its 980 sq. ft. office space at the Pattern Store at Marshall’s Yard to take an additional 480 sq. ft. - in line with its plans for further growth and expansion over the next two year, with the help of the Government’s Growth Accelerator programme.
KAL Group consists of a Marketing Design Agency (Kal Design), a Software Development Company (Limelight Software) and Mobile App Development company (4pockets).
The company’s expert team can deal with everything from a corporate re-brand to tailored websites, advertising, bespoke software solutions and the latest in app development. It’s also the only company in the area to offer 360 degrees tracking of marketing activity.
Andrew said: “This expansion shows how far we have come as a company in a relatively short space of time. Ours is a fast moving and changing industry and keeping ahead of industry trends and understanding the needs of the customers we’re working with are key to succeeding.
"We’re very proud to be part of the business community here in Gainsborough and to have grown our company here in the last five years. We look forward to continuing to make a positive contribution to the vibrancy of the town.”
In the last 12 months the KAL Group has won three regional business awards including the Best Use of Innovation and Technology in the Gainsborough Business Awards.
Alison Hall, assistant centre manager at Marshall’s Yard, said: “KAL is a real success story here in our offices at the Pattern Store at Marshall’s Yard.
"The company moved here with a relatively small team a few years ago and through hard work and focus they’ve grown to be one of the leading agencies in our region.”
The Pattern Store is a grade two listed building which was transformed into high quality offices two years after the main Marshall’s Yard development was completed in 2007. The scheme was grant funded by the East Midlands Development Agency.
Other company’s based at the Pattern Store, which can be found off Station Approach, include Think Umbrella, Keypoint UK and DCI Global.
