RFB Containers


The Insight

RF Brown Containers, based in Scotland, approached us after being acquired by current Managing Director Angus Barraclough and private equity firm Foresight. RF Brown have been around since the 80’s and have a great reputation throughout Scotland. The business acquired new customers from word of mouth, reputation and small bits of digital marketing activity. Our objective was clear, to create a high impact brand that differentiates RF Brown in the highly competitive container marketplace. Then, to help drive enquiries through digital marketing as they expand their offer nationwide.

The Challenge

Our naming consultants recommended that we change RF Brown to RFB. RFB is shorter, easier to say and sounds more modern.

We created a sales focused website, alongside a digital marketing strategy that has already paid for itself 3 months into our retainer. We’ve also integrated a complete digital transformation project for RFB. From website, to CRM, to email marketing – the business has gone from analogue to digital within 60 days, setting up RFB for future growth.

Project completed by our Leeds Office.
