Mercedes-Benz drives support with sponsorship

Mercedes-Benz of Stoke is accelerating its support to Staffordshire’s business community by sponsoring a local business magazine.

Focus magazine is the official business magazine of Staffordshire Chambers of Commerce and, launched in 1952, has a long, proud history.

Mercedes-Benz of Stoke is delighted with this partnership as it compliments over thirty years of their chambers’ membership.

The business became part of Lookers PLC in November 2016 after 26 years as a family business in Stoke-on-Trent.

Rob Dawson, Regional Director for Mercedes Benz, said: “It’s very much business as usual for the team here in Stoke and the opportunity to become involved in sponsoring Focus magazine tied in perfectly with our ambition to continue to be seen and operate as a great local business that is right in the heart of its local community.”

With its refreshed design, Focus is the perfect way to keep up-to-date with Staffordshire’s business news, while gaining information and advice about topical issues affecting you, your company and the wider business community.


The business to business publication has a 3,000-print run and is mailed out to all chambers’ members as well as additional contacts and key decision- makers. In addition, thousands of people view the publication online each year.

Sara Williams, Chief Executive at Staffordshire Chambers, said: “We would like to thank Mercedes-Benz of Stoke for their support as members over the past thirty years and we are delighted to have them on board as leading sponsors of the publication.

“Focus magazine showcases the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit of Staffordshire’s business community which is perfectly aligned to that of MercedesBenz of Stoke.”
