Rhodes Communications, an international public relations and marketing services company based in Norfolk, Va., is celebrating its 30th year in business this month.

Founded in 1983 by Jim Rhodes, the company originally focused primarily on the commercial and recreational segments of the marine industry. Through the years it has added clients in other markets, including GPS, aviation, satellites, government, public safety, construction, transportation, surveying, civil engineering, oil/gas and mining. A recent area of specialization is the rapidly growing telematics and machine-to-machine industry.

The company said most of its clients operate internationally. It has provided public relations support for client promotions in North and South America, Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and even Antarctica.

“Our unique area of specialization is business-to-business PR and marketing for companies selling to other companies in global vertical markets,” Rhodes, the company’s president, said in a statement. “We have discovered that we are very good at presenting technical content in a way that is understandable by non-technical readers.”
