Aloysius Butler & Clark (AB&C), one of the largest independent full-service marketing communications agencies in the region, moved from their previous Wilmington, Delaware headquarters at 819 N. Washington Street to the third floor of Courthouse Square, 600 N. King Street.
AB&C’s new Delaware home at the former Alico insurance building, has nearly 10,000 square feet and can accommodate the agency’s continued growth, a release stated.
“While AB&C has strategically expanded our footprint over the years, we stand strong in our commitment to the people and businesses of Wilmington,” said Paul Pomeroy, CEO. “Since the pandemic, we’ve seen so many companies having to—or choosing to—move out of the area. AB&C is proud to remain central to the community that has supported us throughout the years and to be able to give back by investing right here.”
AB&C employees — which represent departments ranging from creative, digital, PR, media and social media to account services, accounting, executive leadership and others — began working at the new King Street location in early May. The space’s open floor plan affords space for creative and strategic collaborations — as well as multiple conference rooms equipped with a variety of platforms necessary to connect remote workers with colleagues and local, national, and international clients and partners.
The office’s location in Center City Wilmington brings the agency closer to public transportation and retail and restaurant options. Ad agency staff members, especially those on the creative side, often prefer living in Philadlephpia.
AB&C had been headquartered at a former funeral home on the west edge of downtown, at one time a popular area for ad agencies. Most of AB&C’s rival agencies no longer exist due to factors that included the downsizing of DuPont Co. AB&C never relied on DuPont business and instead focused on areas such as health care.
In June 2022, the agency opened a larger, modern space in the heart of Center City Philadelphia to accommodate recent expansion, staff growth and new clients in the region.
In addition, about a year ago, AB&C acquired Mangos, an agency based in Conshohocken, PA AB&C also has an office in Bloomsburg, PA.
