Combined with the logo, new advertising and brochures, the website brands Symmons as the one company customers can count on for products that are simple, durable and beautiful - the smart choice.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) October 6, 2008
Symmons Industries, and their Internet strategy consultant Verndale Corporation, have launched the new website http://www.symmons.com as a transition piece for their large corporate rebranding movement. This user-driven website provides a unique online experience for three distinct user types: homeowners, contractors/engineers, and architects/designers. Using an innovative navigation, visitors can browse Symmons' premier commercial and residential plumbing products with the enhanced capability to filter products by room, type, or family. Users are also able to download installation guides, brochures and catalogs, as well as find local Symmons retail providers based on how they have identified themselves.
A valuable feature of the site is "Design Studio Live," a web-based tool allowing architects and designers to design their own custom bathroom fixtures. Available at http://www.symmons.com/live, Design Studio Live combines interactive design tools with prototype resources at Symmons to deliver custom-designed fittings within 16 weeks.
In their first new brand introduction since the company's inception in 1939, the company's new look, messaging and enhanced product portfolio are all reflected in the updated website. The company's fresh new logo and tagline brand Symmons as "The Smart Choice" for designers and architects, for contractors and for consumers.
"The website is a vital component to our new branding efforts," said Bill O'Keeffe, President and CEO of Symmons. "Combined with the logo, new advertising and brochures, the website brands Symmons as the one company customers can count on for products that are simple, durable and beautiful - the smart choice."
"Our goal was to create a website that reflected Symmons' new corporate brand and could serve as a jumping off point for all their future communications," said Chris Pisapia, Managing Director of Technical Consulting at Verndale. "We also worked hard to organize Symmons' wide range of product offerings and create a user friendly website that makes it easy for visitors to find what they're looking for."
