McCue & Associates LLC, a full service marketing firm located in Clinton, is celebrating its 20-year anniversary. The company strategizes, plans and executes all aspects of marketing from complete integrated programs to public relations, advertising, media management, promotion, branding and communications projects.
Founded in 2001 by President Michael McCue, the company has more than quadrupled its billings, client base and employees in 20 years, and has established itself as one of the country’s leading marketing firms in the metalworking manufacturing category.
In the past two decades, McCue & Associates has represented some of the most respected, leading companies/ brands in manufacturing, such as Starrett, EMUGE, Norton ǀ Saint-Gobain Abrasives, OPEN MIND Technologies, Greenerd Press & Machine and Methods Machine Tools. A recent addition to the client roster is Wintriss Controls Group.
The company’s 20 years were bookended by a recession and a pandemic – beginning with a recession in 2001/2002 and followed by the recession in 2009/2010, and just recently with the COVID-19 pandemic. McCue credits the firm’s resilience to its dedication to providing clients with quality work, results and value.
“We are very proud of this milestone and how we’ve remained strong and grown,” McCue said. “Our longevity is a testament to our client-centric approach that provides sound strategic and creative work that is well executed, within budget and supported by outstanding service. In addition, our knowledge and expertise in manufacturing technology marketing gives us a strong advantage. We are committed to our client-focused mantra and to expanding the firm’s billings and size with the addition of quality name/ brand accounts.
“We have rung in our 20-year anniversary with expectations for a re-energized economy to slowly and steadily take form in 2021,” McCue continued. “Throughout history manufacturing has been vital and essential, including during this on-going pandemic, and we are extremely proud of our efforts to help our manufacturing clients market their products and technology for an even better tomorrow.”
McCue & Associaites is planning to mark the milestone with a “birthday” celebration event.”
