North West branding and digital agency AHOY has reported a turnover increase of 100% to £520k. It’s just 1 year in on it’s three-year growth plan putting the company on track to hit its goal of £1 million turnover by 2016.

The agency has a string of notable client wins to celebrate from 2014, particularly in the fashion and food and drink industries. New clients include Fashion Union, Threadbare and Public Desire, along with Greene King, Lancashire Farm Dairies and Tyres On The Drive.

Along with continued refinement of AHOY’s branding processes, the agency has brought Magento development and digital marketing in-house – expanding their ecommerce, search and social service offerings to make sure that they surpass anything being offered by third party suppliers.

Mark Stringer, Managing Director of AHOY said:

“We have always planned to bring Magento, search and social media services in-house, but were waiting for the right time and the right talent to be available to us. We were tired of seeing disappointing results from external suppliers, and knew that search and social in particular could be handled better – guaranteeing better service and delivering outstanding results for our clients.”

AHOY are due to launch a refreshed website later this year, bringing with it a year’s worth of case studies and statistics.
