SAFETY COMMUNICATIONS AGENCY MCONIE ACQUIRED BY THUNDERBIRD GROUP
McOnie, the award-winning B2B communications agency, has been acquired by the Thunderbird Group, as it continues to build its portfolio of specialist marketing and communication agencies.
McOnie, established in 1990, has experience working for industrial and technical brands. Clients span industrial technology, manufacturing, process and infrastructure but all with the common denominator of safety, providing products, services and training that keep people, processes and infrastructure safe. McOnie delivers a range of services from planning, insight and strategy development through to the execution of award-winning campaigns.
Sarah McOnie, MD at McOnie says, “We are very proud to have been spotted and acquired by the Thunderbird Group. This acquisition will enable us to continue our growth, whilst maintaining our strict focus on safety, by investing to broaden our range of services and continuing to hire top quality communications talent. Integrity, honesty and ambition form part in the core values of the agency and these values are echoed by the Thunderbird Group – that’s why we accepted their offer. Most importantly though, this acquisition will create amazing opportunities for our employees, who, after all, make the agency what it is today.”
Peter Tracey, chairman of the Thunderbird Group, adds, “We are absolutely delighted to have acquired such a well-respected business as McOnie. Their knowledge and experience of safety is unsurpassable and that, coupled with their professionalism and dedication to exceptional client service, made the decision to acquire McOnie a simple one. We look forward to working with Sarah and the team, and investing in the business in the years ahead.”
