Ruukki chooses Pyramid as its Scandinavian agency

After a long evaluation of business-to-business agencies focused on branding and communications, Ruukki selected Pyramid as its new Scandinavian advertising agency.

“Ruukki is strongly emphasizing the Scandinavian market. After Finland, it is now the other Scandinavian markets’ turn to expand. We will achieve this through consistent brand building efforts, and by using communication solutions and campaigns for our specific products and services in the Metals and Construction segments” says Maria Hoffstein, Ruukki’s Scandinavian Marketing Manager.

“We therefore need a strategic communications partner who can help us strengthen our brand and position through creative communication solutions. Pyramid matches our high standards for such a partner. They have a solid foundation in B2B and understand both how to develop trademarks and how to serve our daily business needs."

Ruukki has sales offices, technical centers and production facilities scattered across the country, employing over 700 people in Sweden. Its expertise is divided into three areas: construction & infrastructure construction, solutions and concepts for mechanical engineering, and steel and metal products.

“Ruukki’s needs fit our skill profile perfectly, and we also already have a strong commitment to the Scandinavian markets. A large number of ongoing projects have already started up, at the same time long-term plans are under way to develop brand and communications platform”, says Ulf Vanselius, CEO of Pyramid.

Pyramid’s Ruukki Working Group includes Rikard Jevinger (project manager), Micco Grönholm (brand development), Vera Porad (copy), Vladimir Eidous (AD), Jesper Petersson (production management) and Johan Warnolf, Magnus Astrom and Patrik Olsson (graphic design, production and web).

Pyramid achieves a strong first half year, despite recession and financial crisis

Pyramid Communication continues to thrive. The first half of 2009 was its best ever, despite the recession’s effects on the advertising industry.

“We are well pleased with the year to date. Through concentrated, consistent work we have succeeded in our efforts to meet the tough economic climate," states Ulf Vanselius, Pyramid’s CEO.

“It's nice to be able to say that we have also achieved this goal by practicing what we preach. While many of our industry colleagues hunkered down to weather the storm, we went on the offensive. We hired several new people and redoubled our marketing investments. And it paid off: in the first half of 2009, we have began collaborations with 18 new customers. Financially, this means that we have essentially already secured revenue for 2009, and can thus focus vigorously on further strengthening our position as Sweden's most international agency.”

“During the year, we have participated in several agency surveys, and feel that we have a unique offer. No other Swedish advertising agency can match our combined expertise in international B2B communication. Even considering all Nordic countries, we stand well, as is clearly demonstrated by Norway Post’s decision to designate Pyramid as one of its five lead agencies for the Posten and Bring brands," Vanselius concludes.
