TECO is a well known and reputable British Manufacturer of Builders Metalwork, located in the South East of the UK who sell to thousands of building contractors. Founded in 1979, TECO is a small family business, and even though their team is now made up of over 30 staff, three generations are still involved in the day to day running of Teco.
TECO asked Huxley to design and build a website for TECO that perfectly presented their brand and values, as well as providing an intuitive product search service for their customers. They felt that their old site needed updating of its functionality. TECO wanted a fresh design and an updated UX.
We built the new website as a custom WordPress theme to include their extensive product catalogue. TECO was also keen to post regular blogs which would contribute towards good SEO. Everything on the website can now be easily managed from WordPress intuitive backend using custom fields, created bespoke to fit TECOS unique products.
As there is no e-commerce functionality on TECO’s website, customers would contact their sales team directly for inquiries. We installed a live chat widget to encourage engagement while the customer browses the products. The company contact information and a dedicated contact page are only one click away at any time, should the user not be comfortable with using live chat.
The website also includes their Twitter feed for live updates.
Ultimately, TECO wanted the website to reflect a renowned, customer-focused company with engineering quality and vast industry experience; this is what TECO means to its customers.
