Launch of Lyreco new premises in Ireland

With half a century supporting businesses throughout Ireland, 2022 was the opportune time to raise Lyreco’s brand in the market while celebrating their new facility opening, their great team and their 50th milestone.

European leader and third largest distributor of workplace products and solutions, Lyreco operates in 25 countries globally. We worked with the Lyreco UK & Ireland team on an integrated campaign to announce the opening of their new facilities in Dublin.

The Lyreco Ireland facility launch provided an opportunity for the brand to target the B2B industry across public and private sectors in addition to highlighting their Lyreco Goodness CSR objectives. Our team worked with our client, developing an integrated campaign with objectives focused on – brand awareness; lead generation; growing website traffic; CSR and local community activations; increasing customer opt-ins to email; growing product sales and social media followers.
