A Black Country digital marketing agency has merged with a Scottish firm.
Kinver-based Calloway Green has completed a deal which sees it come under the umbrella of Grand Bridges, a tech consultancy with offices in Edinburgh and a US base in San Francisco.
The firm was founded by Andy Calloway and Chris Green in 2006 at Wolverhampton Science Park.
Calloway Green will now cease to trade with all staff becoming part of Grand Bridges and focusing predominantly on the tech sector, offering a range of services from social media and PR and to content creation, events and exhibitions.

Mr Green said: “Our aim from the start was to help Black Country companies, especially those in the manufacturing sector, to take advantage of an online presence and create websites for them to grow their businesses.
“As the years have passed, demand has increased substantially for businesses to increase their influence online and even some we spoke to at the start that didn’t really need us at that time have gradually decided to turn to digital.
“We know we are one of the businesses that has been extremely fortunate to continue operating during the pandemic and have been kept busy helping companies which have had to switch to more of an online offering.
“As a business, we were still fairly small in staffing numbers and had already embraced the idea of remote working along with our office base in Kinver so in another way we were also fortunate to be prepared for the challenges we have all faced over the last year.”
He said the merger was building on a relationship with Grand Bridges established two years ago following a referral from a client.
“Having worked together on various projects, Grand Bridges has now decided it would like to absorb Calloway Green into its business so it can offer a much wider offering for clients which is a really exciting development allowing us to adopt more of a global approach,” Mr Green added.
