"Today, we relaunch Revel as an agency focused on delivering results to manufacturers,” said Revel Partner Jason Piasecki. “Manufacturing has, is, and will continue to drive the U.S. economy. Over the past 20 years, manufacturers have been our single largest category. We make sure our clients are the frontrunners.”

Revel’s strategic, creative, and digital marketing services generate high-quality sales leads, position brands, work to attract talented employees, and develop effective websites for manufacturing businesses.

“Our vision is that Revel will become the top marketing resource for small to midsize manufacturing companies in America. When manufacturers want to grow, their first call will be to Revel,” added Piasecki.

Serving Manufacturers

In 2015, manufacturing accounted for $2.2 trillion (12.1%) of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in the U.S. Manufacturing will always be one of the top segments of the economy. The industry continues to face challenges such as offshore competition, talent attraction and recruitment, and the image of manufacturing in general. An effective marketing strategy is one of the keys to overcoming those challenges.

Revel’s manufacturing clients have won awards, garnered media attention, and gained industry praise for their innovative marketing tools.

“We're not successful unless our clients are successful,” added Revel Partner Andy Maciejewski. “We build strong brands that grow manufacturing businesses by changing the perception of marketing from being a cost center to revenue-producer.”

Revel’s clients range from well-known, global brands like Brunswick and Arconic (formerly Alcoa) to regional leaders like Nichols to niche players like Pacific Floorcare and Dynamic Conveyor.

“As a result of working with Revel, we have seen double-digit growth for consecutive years. Revel has been there every step of the way, and we’ve seen tremendous change because of it,” said Danielle Fields, former Pacific Floorcare Sales & Marketing Manager.

"We work with Revel because they are leading edge and bring us new ideas. They have the resources and knowledge to take us to the next level, which has kept us in front of our competition," said Renae Hesselink, Nichols Vice President of Sustainability.

The key to delivering results is teaching clients Revel’s proven process to produce effective advertising that moves people to action.

“Our best client relationships view us a resource and partner. We know marketing, we know manufacturing, and we know how to get results,” said Revel Partner Don Kalisz.
