It will continue to keep a studio at its former base in Stockport for the time being, but managing director Gav Matthews and creative director Steve Simacola are now based at MediaCityUK. A further three staff work off-site.

Matthews said: “MediaCityUK is the ideal and obvious choice for a company like Kalua. To be right at the heart of the UK’s creative nerve-centre is perfect for our business. As Manchester’s dedicated radio creative agency, we felt it was only right to have a base here at MediaCityUK.

“You can really feel a buzz around the place, and there is a definite feeling of “camaraderie” here. It brings with it lots of opportunity to share thoughts and ideas, and we’ve already joined forces with fellow MediaCityUK companies on some exciting projects. We’re really looking forward to making this vibrant, creative city our home.”

Current Kalua clients include the BBC, Renault and the Co-operative and the company is also working with Tesco on the launch of its Blinkbox music service.
