IRVING, Texas, Jan. 11 -- Carrington Laboratories, Inc., (NASDAQ:CARN) today announced they have launched a new corporate website. The redesigned website is located at Carrington's current URL of http://www.carringtonlabs.com/ and contains new features such as site search functionality, improved navigation, and updated information on Carrington's products and services. New pages have also been added containing information on Carrington's subsidiaries and other markets such as veterinary and oral care products. The online shopping cart has also been redesigned to make it much easier to purchase Carrington's products via the web.
DelSite Biotechnologies, Inc., Carrington's drug delivery subsidiary, has more visibility and information related to its development of a nasal powder vaccine using its GelVac(TM) formula with the H5N1 (bird flu) antigen. Potential partners now have several points to access the DelSite website, http://www.delsite.com/ . Links are available throughout the site including, a prominent logo located on the bottom right hand side of the homepage, through the drug delivery sections under Markets We Serve and Research, and through the Subsidiaries page.
"Over the past six months, Carrington has been analyzing our market presence and strategy of all our business segments and brands. One consistent theme that continued to come up from potential customers and partners was our website," stated Mr. Doug Golwas, Vice President of Corporate Sales and Marketing. "It did not accurately reflect our company's image and contained little information on who we are and what we do. The new website has addressed these concerns and portrays Carrington as what it is, a research- oriented, global supplier of health products."
In conjunction to launching the redesigned website, Carrington will be implementing an Internet marketing campaign to build awareness of its brands and services. The Internet marketing campaign will consist of search engine optimization, pay-per-click advertisements, banner advertisements with industry organizations, an email marketing initiative and an online customer retention program. By combining the Internet marketing campaign with the new website, Carrington hopes to reach out to a larger group of customers and improve communication with existing customers and partners.
