Knights MPR appointed by ABS Group

Knights Media & Public Relations (Knights MPR) will provide global communications, PR and media engagement support to help to increase market awareness of ABS Group’s comprehensive engineering and risk management solutions.


ABS Group is the leading safety and risk management advisor and their experts help organizations to manage today’s risk and reliability challenges in the industrial world. Its consultants combine deep domain expertise, innovative data techniques and advanced analytics to support safer, more reliable assets and operations in Marine and Offshore, Oil, Gas and Chemical, LNG, Industrial Manufacturing and Government sectors.

Jason Knights, CEO and Lead Director of Knights MPR, said: “We are delighted to be working with ABS Group and their consulting business. Safety, risk and integrity management are at the core of ABS and their approach and what they do aligns with our own ethos and values. It is a great association.”

ABS began providing non-classification marine technical services in 1971. Over the decades, its range of services expanded to support the diverse industrial and government clients that power, fuel and regulate our world.

Today, ABS Group provides data-driven risk and reliability solutions and technical services that help companies confirm the safety, integrity, quality and environmental efficiency of their critical assets and operations.

ABS Group is an independent subsidiary of its parent organization, American Bureau of Shipping (ABS), one of the world’s leading marine and offshore classification societies founded in 1862.

Knights MPR’s remit with ABS Group will span a hybrid mix of content generation, campaign development, media engagement and public relations support. Its team will help to showcase ABS Group’s consulting capabilities and how their technical expertise is being used to support organizations on their journey to operational excellence against a backdrop of increasingly new operating regimes and digital technologies that are evolving to support the industries we all rely on.

Knights MPR, which specialises in taking a ‘journalist’s eye’ of client challenges, is fast-developing its communications support and guidance. With a wealth of experience in maritime, shipping and energy, this latest contract is the perfect complement to Knights MPR’s existing portfolio of non-competing clients.

This latest contract appointment strengthens the agency’s credentials. Knights MPR has become the preferred partner of choice for a number of international clients in Finland, UK, North America, the Middle East, France and Singapore. On 1 January 2020, the agency was chosen by engine lubricants specialist Lubmarine and TotalEnergies Marine Fuels Global Solutions.

The contract between ABS Group and Knights MPR commenced February 2023.
