Industrie-Contact – A synonym for high-quality publicity work. Since 1979, Industrie-Contact has been involved with the practice of public relations and marketing on both the national and international levels, giving it a background of experience that very few agencies can say they have. Industrie-Contact understands its work helps clients increase their sales and improve the degree to which their names are recognised among the public.

Most of the 15 full-time employees have been with the firm for five to ten year, providing clients and partners with the comfort of knowing that they know what they are talking about. The members of the board are fully integrated into the operations of the business, and are, therefore, close to the client. The firm stresses direct cooperation with company managers.

The media world is spinning faster today than ever. That makes it all the more important to have long-term relationships with the media. The firm’s 35+ years of history in the business, its committed and dedicated employees help guarantee just that. Located in Hamburg, Germany’s number one media city, gives it physical proximity to most of all the important publishing houses. Industrie-Contact is one of the top PR agencies in Germany.

In addition to the Public Relations Global Network, Industrie-Contact is also a member the German Association of Journalists (DJV) and the German Public Relations Society (DPRG), the largest German professional association of the PR branche. It defines the standards of content and oversees the ethical rules to which the organized PR experts and agencies in the DPRG adhere.
