Tech PR delivers Host Of Coverage for Scottish Space Firm’s Expansion into Cornwall Facility

Tech PR agency celebrates coverage secured for Scottish space firm SKyrora as they prepare for engine testing at a new Cornwall site

As Edinburgh-based Skyrora looks to begin pioneering engine tests, we shared news of the space firm’s expansion into a new facility at Cornwall Airport.

The Scottish rocket developer is currently in the final stage of preparations ahead of the upcoming tests, setting up distillation equipment at the Cornwall facility as they continue to make ground-breaking steps toward launching satellites from UK soil.

A revolutionary 3D-printed rocket engine is set to be tested at the site – manufactured in conjunction with engineering firm Frazer Nash.

We shared the news of Skyrora’s expansion into the Cornwall site and were able to secure widespread coverage, with highlights including:

  • Online and print coverage in leading Scottish title, The National
  • Coverage on The Register – a leading global online tech publication read by some of the industry’s most influential figures
  • Articles in local Cornish titles including the Cornish Guardian and Newquay Voice, ensuring Skyrora’s key messages are heard in the communities they are testing in
  • A total of 15 items of coverage over 150,000 opportunities to see the story

Four montages display the success of tech PR in devlivering record breaking coverage for Edinburgh based Skyrora on the return of the Black Arrow to the UKThe engine test will be the first of its type by a British small-satellite launcher since Black Arrow in the 1960s – a rocket that Skyrora successfully transported home from its landing site in South Australia and unveiled in front of politicians and leading figures in the space industry earlier this year

Sharing the news of Skyrora’s pioneering 3D engine tests is vital in maintaining their reputation as a firm that draws on Britain’s launch heritage – aiming to build a robust supply chain while creating new employment opportunities to inspire the next generation of talent.
