Halo reaches for the sky


Halo PR & Communications has been awarded a two-year contract to deliver PR and social media services to AeroSpace Cornwall following a competitive tender process.

AeroSpace Cornwall offers technical and commercial support for businesses who are developing new products, services and technologies which will add value to the space and aerospace sectors.

Working in collaboration with design studio Design 79, Halo will be responsible for promoting the success stories and the benefits of accessing funding and support from AeroSpace Cornwall.

The contract follows on from a number of wins in the technology sector for Halo. In 2018 it worked with Gravity Industries, a business responsible for the world’s first ever Jet Suit – seeing over 700 million views on associated content.

More recently, the company has engaged with clients such as Razor, a Sheffield-based technology consultancy making advances in digital transformation in British manufacturing. It also has had great success working with fledgling businesses in the space economy such as Space Forge, a young and ambitious company based in Bristol designing reusable manufacturing satellites, and earlier this year won a contract to manage comms for Spaceport Cornwall.

Halo’s CEO and founder, Jess Ratty, said: “We want to position Cornwall in a new light; telling the story of its evolution into a leader in business innovation and the heart of the UK space and tech sector. We see the opportunity to work with AeroSpace Cornwall as an incredible chance to help to build and inspire the next generation of a broad range of businesses who are looking to increase their capability in the space and aerospace sectors.”

Shelley Jones, marketing and communications manager at AeroSpace Cornwall, added: “We are extremely excited to start work with the Halo team, the tender process was competitive but we are confident that given Jess’s strong roots to Cornwall and the team’s experience of working with truly innovative companies we were making the right choice.

“Halo will help shine a spotlight on the businesses we support and show Cornwall to be a region of innovation in the space and aerospace sectors.”
