“Peter is extremely knowledgeable not only in the fundamentals of PR and its importance in generating a competitive advantage, but more importantly, he combines this with an outstanding acumen regarding the motor industry. His firm brought tremendous added value to our efforts in Europe with Mazda.”
Bradley Lucas
Marketing Manager, EurotaxGlass’s
“We have dealt with a number of specialist automotive PR agencies in the past, but none has come close to PFPR – notably in terms of its industry knowledge, strategic input, media contacts and the very high standard of copywriting.

“They played a central role in raising awareness of EurotaxGlass’s and its products and services over a number of years, both at a UK and European level. They achieved significant, year-on-year improvements in media exposure for EurotaxGlass’s. PFPR’s input was critical to the success of our communications.”

“With its in-depth knowledge of the automotive industry, attention to detail, dedication, clear thinking and rapid response, PFPR has become an essential part of Kia’s global and European PR operations”
Jeremy Thompson
Managing Director,
Mazda Motors UK
“Mazda has had an association with PFPR as our embedded PR and event agency for over a decade.  PFPR operates with a deft touch – formal and efficient when needed, friendly and accessible for journalists,  and always representative of our brand and how we wish it to be portrayed. The account team has played a key role in supporting our in-house PR staff to achieve consistently high rankings in independent surveys into the quality of PR in the automotive industry and I can commend the agency to others seeking PR support.”
Sander van Dijk
Marketing, Events & Brand Manager, Spyker
“PFPR has done an excellent job in managing Spyker’s international communications.  The account team has provided great strategic advice and has led from the front on some very sensitive corporate matters and our product-focused activities.  The team has excelled in its writing, has secured impressive interviews for our senior management.  ROI is a major consideration for us and the press coverage has been phenomenal considering our small budgets.  The account team is always willing and available, consistently delivers on time, and no project or task is too much trouble.  I have absolute confidence in PFPR’s capabilities and in its commitment.”

They are astute, creative and hard working, willing to do whatever it takes to deliver.  The PFPR team works with us on events on everything from concept, to design and build and event management.  They handle changing requests and evolving plans, even working through the night if necessary.  Their front of house staff provide calm thoughtful management, anticipating problems and thinking ahead at all times. They are a pleasure to work with and I would not hesitate to recommend PFPR.”
