Thermal Compaction Group Ltd (TCG) approached Gary Baker, of Wales and West Media Ltd, seeking some publicity about their invention, a machine which could turn waste into recycled products.

The machine, called a Sterimelt, was aimed at the health sector and particularly the blue, once only, material that hospitals used during operations. This material was being incinerated at a cost to the health boards running the hospitals.

TCG’s Sterimelt machine was able to take this uncontaminated waste and turn it into polypropylene blocks that could then be sold as recycled material by the health board and turned into anything from warning signs for washed floors to chairs and tables.

This would actually produce a revenue to the health board from something which was costing them money to burn.

 

Trials of the Sterimelt machine had been ongoing for several months, in association with the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board, covering South East Wales. Gary Baker prepared a PR plan to gain publicity for this new invention to be feature across all media platforms, from newspapers and magazines to social and digital content and, working in conjunction with other specialist PR organisations around the UK, to trade and global medical media.

One major coup for Wales and West Media’s efforts was to be featured on the ‘money cannot buy’ platform of the BBC regional news.

Here, a BBC Wales Today reporter and cameraman rang to ask to put together an item for that Friday night’s news programme. Within ten minutes, the marketing director of TCG and the regional director of the health board agreed to drop everything and be interviewed at the hospital two hours later.

That night, the story appeared as one of the main headlines read out on the Wales Today news with the interview package shown later in the programme. TCG’s managing director was thrilled with the outcome, as were the rest of his team, and subsequently have engaged Gary Baker and Wales and West Media on rolling out their trials and their other programmes to media across the UK and beyond.

This initial publicity package has gained a lot of interest from clients across the British and global medical industry, which has resulted in new orders for the Sterimelt machine being placed.

The company have been so pleased with Wales and West Media’s help that Gary Baker was invited as part of the team to Cardiff City Hall soon after the initial publicity where TCG won the Success Through Innovation trophy at the Wales Business Awards.

The Action For Childrencharity asked Wales and West Media Ltd to help with the Welsh launch of the National Fostering Care Initiative in a Cardiff shopping centre.

The idea was for children to enjoy colouring in a large poster spread across a long table while the staff from Action For Children talked to parents, guardians and teachers about fostering initiatives.

The event needed significant planning and pre-publicity through websites, newspapers and social media was good.

Wales and West Media kept in constant contact with the staff of Action For Children in Newport, Wales, in the lead-up to the event.

On the day, twenty primary and special needs children, with their teachers and parents, attended the exhibition which proved to be a great success. Parents and teachers engaged with Action for Children staff, with numerous professional photographs being taken.

Later, Wales and West Media’s Gary Baker liaised with the media again to gain media traction and, in conjunction with Action For Children’s PR team, managed to get significant column inches in Welsh newspapers as well as through charity sector magazines, to the delight of the charity.

Dr Bridget Kirsop, of One Life Coaching, has worked with Gary Baker, of Wales and West Media, on her Public Relations and communication strategies since November 2016. Here she explains why she recommends Gary and Wales and West Media's services.

‘Gary is an excellent sports editor who has greatly improved the Gloucestershire Gazette website’s sports section in the past year and does a superb job of producing all the sports pages single-handedly.

In the past year, he has maintained the consistent growth of unique users for the sports section online and coped well with staff redundancies which have directly impacted his workload.

Gary goes above and beyond what is expected of him in terms of working hours and is a fantastic asset to the Gazette.’

Michael Purton, Divisional Deputy Editor, Newsquest Midlands South and Gloucestershire
