Bespoke joinery company, Scotts of Thrapston, has appointed a Midlands PR firm to handle publicity for its buildings, joinery and truss divisions.

Wolverhampton-based Connect PR's remit covers trade and consumer communications of the company's range of timber products, from trussed rafters and performance doors to summerhouses and pavilions.

Scotts' latest product, the RHS Cosy Nook, was launched at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

Managing director of Connect PR, Hazel Crawford, said: "We are thrilled to be working with Scotts of Thrapston during this exciting time for the company.

"The family-run business has earned itself an enviable reputation for quality products crafted to the highest specification and the PR for the company throughout 2014 will reflect that."

David Scott, whose grandfather James Scott founded the business in 1920, said: "This is a very important time for the business given that we are seeing positive trends across all markets with a sense that the economy is starting to recover and customers within all divisions are showing more confidence.

"The public relations campaigns undertaken by Connect will support our long-term marketing strategy and in turn support further growth of the business."

Connect PR also counts Persimmon Homes, Volkswagen, Yale, Johnstone's, Selco Builders Warehouse and Leyland Paints amongst its clients. Scotts of Thrapston joins Autoglym, Morris Lubricants and Palletline as new clients in 2014.
