EMS Group is made up of Event Marketing Solutions (EMS), the market leading roadshow agency, and EMS Healthcare, a primary supplier of fully compliant mobile medical units to the NHS.

The new offices based in Ellesmere Port have seen an investment of £2.4 million, with a further £1 million investment in technology and fleet capacity will see the business establish a workshop to create and design its roadshow trucks in-house. 

Keith Austin, CEO of EMS Group, said: "Increased demand for mobile solutions in both of our core markets – marketing events and healthcare – has put us on a tremendous growth trajectory that now requires that we invest further in expanding our Cheshire operations. While we will still be working with our network of suppliers, we have exciting plans to bring some more design and tech-capabilities in-house. This will be significant in driving cost efficiencies, and our customers will benefit from greater speed of deployment of our vehicles. The new workshop and technology is a real first within our sector, and reflects our commitment to spearheading the industry with innovations that will future-proof our service."
