New clients over the past year have included Fashion Union, Threadbare, Greene King, Lancashire Farm Dairies and Tyres On The Drive.

It’s also brought Magento development and digital marketing in-house.

MD Mark Stringer 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.”

The agency, which says it will launch a new website later this year, launched in 2008.
