Nick Howe, MD of Uniform said: “Waters is world-leading - they’re pioneers in their market. There’s a great story to tell and we were keen advocates that they should begin communicating this story as early as possible to leverage the benefits.”

Claire Sharp, marketing communications manager of Waters said: “The new Manchester centre is one of the most significant investments in the company’s recent history – we needed an agency capable of bringing the story to life. The finished product was creative and imaginative and has inspired our staff and customers.

“Uniform demonstrated a high degree of creativity, professionalism and patience.”
