ThomasNet Web Solutions link manufacturer of industrial chains with new prospects and distribution partners worldwide
Waukegan, IL-February 11, 2010-PEER Chain Company, a manufacturer of industrial chains and attachments, has launched a new website from ThomasNet to make it easier for prospective customers and distribution partners in growing industries to learn about the company, and find the products that they need.
PEER Chain's products span a range of applications, from heavy series drive chains on farm equipment to oil rigs; from the smallest micro-chip processing conveyor to a hydroelectric dam project. For more than 40 years, the company has provided ANSI and ISO compliant chains for the agricultural machinery, food, citrus, lumber, sugar, construction equipment, and sewage treatment industries.
PEER Chain sought a better way to penetrate growing markets such as food and agriculture, while increasing its custom business and expanding its distributor network. The new website incorporates tools to help engineers in these industries to find PEER Chain online easily and better navigate through its offerings. The website, built on ThomasNet's Navigator platform technology, serves as an extension of PEER Chain's sales team, anticipating and answering prospects' questions, and leading them to purchase. Visitors to the site are able to:
o Browse through PEER Chain's complete catalog of products, searching by part numbers or categories such as Roller Chain, Agricultural Chain, Engineering Chain, Problem Solver Chain, and Specialty Chain. They can also search for products in nine industry categories, from Lumber/Wood to Citrus.
o Evaluate products by key attributes such as plate height and roller diameter.
o Compare up to five similar products on one page.
o Access and download specification sheets as PDFs and brochures, and view and enlarge product images.
o Access additional engineering information-from a roller chain length chart that converts pitches to feet, to a sheet on how temperatures affect chain applications.
o Start an order by completing and submitting a Request for Quote (RFQ).
"The content on our new site is exposing new prospects to our company and will enable us to more deeply penetrate our core markets," said Laurence Spungen, CEO, PEER Chain. "In the first month we went online, we were amazed at how quickly we were showing up in product searches by the prospects we're best positioned to serve."
