​Elemica’s B2B exchange networks, cloud-computing platform, and business process automation were new technologies when it first approached MediaFirst. Elemica selected MediaFirst for our experience as a leading Supply Chain & Logistics Public Relations agency in the USA and North America. MediaFirst helped Elemica introduce new solutions and expand awareness on the way to grow revenues.

Elemica choose MediaFirst to develop strategic messaging, write and issue press releases, do media/analyst relations, manage speaking engagements, and for award opportunities management. When Elemica acquired Rubber Networks to expand into the process industry in 2009, MediaFirst wrote and issued the global press release.

MediaFirst helped Elemica promote change and growth through company transformations, such as the hiring of a new CEO and releasing the cloud-based software platform. MediaFirst staff worked hand-in-hand with Elemica’s Marketing Team for the new product introduction campaign. This campaign included writing white papers, case studies, bylined articles, and issue-based press releases on:

Elemica’s Market-Driven Supply Chain Solutions and Competitive Wins

Effective Onboarding of Trading Partners is Key to Gaining Competitive Edge
