We deliver contemporary, impactful and measurable PR across a broad range of industries, from steel fabrication to energy, engineering and Information Technology.

Kendal Hunt Communications is a South African-based PR and media consulting agency specialising in the industrial and engineering industries, amongst others. “Our aim is to provide clients in these industries with strategic media PR services, which have a significant and measurable impact on their businesses. Our PR campaigns cover a broad media spectrum and a variety of delivery platforms, from print, broadcasting and online to social networking media,” says Kendal Hunt, owner and Managing Director, who is also responsible for overall account direction and editorial quality control.

Kendal is ably supported by an experienced team of account managers, PR administrators as well as seasoned specialist industrial and technical writers. The team at Kendal Hunt Communications has over 70 years’ combined experience covering PR, media liaison, marketing, communications, advertising, journalism, writing, editing and media analysis.

”We pride ourselves on our personal and proactive approach in meeting your communication needs, which includes PR account management, editorial generation and media relationship building. If your company wishes to increase market visibility, raise brand awareness, influence key stakeholders and target audiences, and manage its reputation through effective media communication, we can provide you with the required expertise to achieve your strategic communication objectives,” Kendal advises.


In these financially pressured times, we are aware that clients are looking for robust, value-added services which will yield significant results and return-on-invest (ROI) at all times. In PR and media liaison terms, this means that we must consistently monitor and measure the results we deliver for our clients. This measurement arises from the regular analysis of the penetration and attendant Rand value of the media coverage obtained, to the less tangible yet immensely valuable media relationship-building, reputation and profile creation for which we are responsible.

All client PR campaigns include a end-of-term PR review, in which the above analyses routinely yield between 80 to 100 percent successful publication of editorial we produce, as well as 3 to 5 times financial ROI, in relation to the initial campaign costing. Please contact Kendal Hunt Communications to discuss your needs and to arrange for us to present a PR and Media Liaison proposal to which reflects a service level that will best meet your requirements.
