Montreal, November 3, 2015 – DentsuBos is the new brand agency for MAAX. Initiated last September, the process took place in two phases: a call for nominations, which allowed for the retention of two agencies, followed by an invitation for those selected to submit case studies and highlight their expertise regarding the renovation industry.
“Our decision landed on DentsuBos for its wide range of skills and its ability to be able to meet our needs—the development of a 360 North American campaign, including interesting expertise in the digital world. Its structured approach was also considered as an important asset when making our decision.“ said Julie Caron, MAAX’s Commercial Marketing Director.
The DentsuBos team is receiving its first mandate for the development of a national strategy to promote an innovative new product. The agency will be responsible for brand positioning, strategic planning, digital and interactive strategy, creation, planning and media buying, and cross-platform media.
“We’re very happy to have been selected to collaborate on achieving success for the MAAX brand, its strong Quebec roots and its desire to expand its reach in North America,” explains Francois Mailloux, DentsuBos’ Executive Vice President.
The account will be managed from DentsuBos’ Montreal office. The mandate is already in place and new campaigns are expected to emerge at the beginning of the year.
