Manchester’s KMS Media closes its doors for good

KMS Media

Manchester’s KMS Media has decided to close after 10 years in business. The company cited the ongoing economic challenges following the Covid-19 pandemic as the reason for its closure.

The full-service, Manchester-based advertising agency, which was based in the city’s Contact Theatre, was established in 2012 and specialised in the arts and culture sectors.

In a statement announcing the closure, co-founder and company director Karen Young said: “It is with much sadness that, after 10 years, we have decided to wind down the business and KMS Media closed its doors last Tuesday. The last couple of years have been pretty tough, as they have been for everyone. We weathered the Covid storm profitably, however with the ongoing economic climate we have decided it’s time for a change. We are extremely proud of our work over the past 10 years in business and feel that we achieved our aim to be an independent agency that worked hard for the regions within the arts and culture sector.

We are truly thankful to have worked with our wonderful clients to deliver some brilliantly successful campaigns and projects. I want to thank them and our suppliers for their support over the years.”

Key clients KMS worked with in its decade-long history included Manchester’s Home arts centre, London’s Old Royal Naval College, Discover Yorkshire Coast and the Manchester Primary Care Trust.
