We’re an experienced team that understands the chemicals industry. For over a decade, we’ve been helping our clients in the chemicals sector to develop their communication strategies, based on clear-sighted thinking and honest discussions. Agile in our approach and reliable in our delivery, we’ve also supported them with a range of services, from crisis planning to product marketing.

Our team has enabled clients to develop positive relationships with their stakeholders, enhancing their reputation at many levels. We’ve helped them build engagement with communities, employees, customers, suppliers, regulatory and government stakeholders and media.

At the same time, we’re comfortable creating, editing, translating or proofreading written materials from technical datasheets to intranet updates and employee townhall presentations.

Working with the chemicals industry

The chemicals industry develops solutions to some of the globe’s biggest challenges. Tala is uniquely placed, because we understand chemical manufacturing processes as well as the vital role that chemical industries play in today’s society and in defining our future.

Regulation, health & safety, and care of the environment are just some of the complex reputational risk factors that challenge this industry. Building trust is a long-term and fragile process that needs consistent and assured communication skills.

We can help define, as well as provide, a clear role for effective external support. Many international companies have central teams plus devolved in-country communications and marketing units. We offer support at both levels, and can rapidly step up during peak workloads, for example during the build-up to events, exhibitions and launches.

Our experience

Tala’s consultants have worked with the chemical sector since – and even before – the agency was founded in 2007. In that time we have built strong and meaningful relationships with our clients, many of whom have retained our services consistently over those years.

They trust us to offer clear, objective advice, based on facts and our understanding of the industry, its stakeholders, and its media. And they know we can deliver a range of practical, hands-on services including exhibition support and marketing communications, working seamlessly as part of their teams.
