A great website can be one of your best marketing tools helping to attract prospects, establish trust, capture leads, and ultimately win new business. 

According to a recent industrial survey, there is a 12% increase in website usage by manufacturers and industrial companies to connect with more buyers and customers this year. So in today’s digitally connected world, what separates a great website from the rest of the crowd? 

At Thomas, we’ve helped build and optimize more than 5,000 sites for manufacturers and industrial companies, so we know an awesome website when we see one. Here are some of the best manufacturing and industrial websites that build relationships with their visitors and turn them into customers.

1. American Alloy Fabricators

American Alloy Fabricators is an ASME-certified manufacturer located just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania serving the Pharmaceutical, Biotech and Chemical Processing industries and offers complete custom fabrication services.

American Alloy Fabricators and other similar manufacturers created pop ups on their homepage communicating their business response to the COVID-19 pandemic. They ensure the website visitor immediately — and clearly — understands the supply chain impacts and commitment to employee and customer safety. Note that their homepage immediately displays their ASME certification — something that buyers look for. We also love how their homepage features a unique but clear CTA: “Start Your Project Now!” It gives the user insight into exactly what their next step is when they click the link.

American Alloy’s site has a very intuitive navigation, so prospects can quickly and easily get where they need to go. Their Resources section features a blog that helps solidify American Alloy as a thought leader by answering common questions. We also love that their website design and colors are a perfect match to their brand.

2. Tex Tech Industries

Tex Tech Industries is a leader in research, development, and the manufacturing of innovative, high-performance materials — and their website truly exemplifies this messaging. Their industry-specific pages are data-rich, filled with videos and unique interactive graphics that really showcase the value of their materials, the diverse markets they serve, and the unique cases they solve. Most of all, the quality of their website design instills trust.

“Diversified content on our site has really helped us stand out as a leader in the industry,” said Eoin Lynch, Executive Director of Sales and Marketing at Tex Tech Industries. “Some aerospace technology can be complex, but our graphics, data sheets, and videos from Thomas Marketing Services break it down for buyers to understand what they need and how we help them.”

Manufacturing buyers, engineers, and procurement managers are technical and sophisticated. As you redesign your website, make sure your marketing efforts reflect this. They seek quality and trust, so your website should portray the same.

3. Dedicated Computing

Dedicated Computing is an original design manufacturer (ODM) of highly engineered computing systems for OEM customers, primarily within the healthcare, life sciences, training and simulation, and industrial markets. 

Dedicated Computing offers very complex solutions, but everything on their site is simple and straightforward. The title text on the homepage sums up what they do perfectly, with a subtle hint of branding thrown in as well.

The module used for the “DC Spotlight” is a great use of real estate at the bottom of the home page. Featuring a company blog or news section on a homepage is a good way to boost traffic and viewership of the organic areas of your site.

4. Lockheed Martin Corporation

Lockheed Martin is an aerospace, defense, security, and advanced technologies company — you probably already knew that. But what you probably didn’t know is that Lockheed Martin is also a great storyteller. In fact, they’ve made their blog — not their products or services — a focal point of their site, so when you land on the homepage and begin to scroll, you can’t help but engage with these articles.

While a blog is the heart of any content strategy, many companies view it as an afterthought. By featuring the blog content so prominently on their site, Lockheed is leveraging its content to highlight their expertise and innovations, while building relationships with visitors and converting them into leads.

Industrial Website Design Example - Lockheed-Martin

Lockheed Martin’s website content is extensive. Video is utilized strategically across Lockheed Marin’s website, which helps diversify the content and engage with visitors who prefer visuals over reading content. For Lockheed Martin, their dedication to innovation and quality is reflected across their website and videos help to break down the company history and their mission. There’s no shortage of information for any type of website visitor.

5. Glauber Equipment Packaging

Glauber Equipment Corporation designs and builds custom fabricated skid systems, pump systems, compressed air systems, landfill gas treatment systems, and more.

The first thing you’ll notice about the Glauber site design is its use of color. The smart use of white space evokes a minimalist, clean design, and allows the accented, branded red to stand out — that “Request A Quote” button just screams, “click here.”

Below the fold is a large “products” module, which is easily navigable and allows users to learn more about the company’s offerings without even touching the navigation menu. While many sites employ a market or industries module on the homepage, Glauber’s execution is unique. Their website has a module that uses an “accordion tab,” and when you hover over an icon, a corresponding CTA and description appear. It’s a good way to limit overloading visitors with CTA buttons while still making it easy to get to the right place.

6. M3 Glass Technologies

M3 Glass Technologies is a global leader in producing and shipping custom fabricated glass products. This family-owned company is now on its third generation of owners and has evolved each decade since the 1950s up-to-the digital age of today.

There are a few key features to note on the M3 homepage, starting with the CTA that is placed above the fold. What makes this CTA special? It draws the reader in with its popping brand color, its hover animation, and the simple design around the CTA that draws viewers in to click.

Something else that the M3 Glass site does well that more manufacturers are utilizing is video marketing. Not only is video one of the top mediums for marketing, but using testimonial videos are a great way to showcase to your customers how you can help them from your customers’ perspective.

Another Angle: Creating Content For Case Studies

According to HubSpot’s 2020 State of Marketing report, video beat out heavyweight contenders like email, blogging, and infographics as the most used type of marketing content. Thomas offers free video production services with an advertising program — learn more here.

7. Plex

Plex is an ERP manufacturing software that connects manufacturing operations in a cloud to provide visibility and control over manufacturing processes. It should come as no surprise that a software solution company website uses a cutting-edge website design.

Plex incorporates videos in their header instead of one traditional hero image, which is very effective in drawing users in and catching their attention. There are multiple CTAs (Get The Report, Read More, Product Demo, etc.) to help increase online submissions.

We love that their homepage header gives visitors the option to choose who they are, “Supply Chain Leader,” “CEO,” “Quality Manager,” etc. to tailor the website content for their needs. According to BCG, brands that create personalized experiences by integrating advanced digital technologies and proprietary data for customers are seeing revenue increase by 6% to 10%.

Manufacturers and industrial companies looking to connect with more buyers online should note how important it is to understand who their buyers are. This is called persona targeting — when you take the time to compile data about your key targets and organize it, you can more easily create the right content to reach your audience.

8. Mac Instruments

Mac Instruments manufactures industrial instruments. With a focus on moisture analyzers and flow meters, Mac Instruments is a world leader in high-temperature moisture measurement in industrial processes.

The Mac Instruments website stands out thanks to a dark, bold theme. Each product page features a lot of in-depth information, including data sheets, handbooks, wiring information and more. Having a lot of valuable content like this on site pages can have a huge impact when it comes to search engine optimization and usability.

Another great feature that Mac Instruments utilizes is a “Back To Top” CTA, which provides an easy user experience for their audience to get back to the top of the webpage.

9. Mattei

In 1958, Mattei developed the rotary vane compressor and since then, these machines have been used worldwide in nearly every industry and market. Let’s face it, first impressions are everything. You have about seven seconds to grab a visitors attention before they potentially navigate away from your manufacturing website. With that in mind, Mattei certainly does a great job of catching your attention. The first thing you’ll notice is that the homepage has some simple, yet effective animations for the homepage copy, images, and navigation bar.  

The combination of the language used and the dual-toned headers paint a picture that is bold, attention-grabbing, and authoritative. By displaying images of Mattei products, there is a clear understanding of what the company offers — product images are  one of the criteria buyers use to evaluate them. Throughout Mattei’s website is SEO-rich, professionally written copy to provide great detail about their capabilities and the industries they serve — while boosting their visibility in searches.

Mattei - Industrial Website Example

10. Dehumidifier Corp

Dehumidifier Corp does just about everything when it comes to dehumidifiers. The products they offer vary from dehumidifiers, control systems, condensers, and duct heaters serving a wide range of industries.

What makes this site stand out can’t be seen with the naked eye, but happens behind the scenes. The company utilizes A/B testing to drive continuous improvement and ensure that its site is always being optimized. A/B testing is a component of Growth-Driven Design (GDD), which is a more analytical and data-driven approach to website design and development. Unlike traditional web design, GDD focuses on iterative testing and improvements, capturing visitor behavior, and making decisions fueled by actionable data — not gut instinct.

Acquisition to Include Two Retail Dispensaries and a Cultivation and Product Manufacturing Facility

Jushi to Enter Its Seventh State and Expand Retail Footprint to 19 Dispensaries Nationwide

BOCA RATON, Fla., April 19, 2021 – Jushi Holdings Inc. (“Jushi” or the “Company”) (CSE: JUSH) (OTCMKTS: JUSHF), a vertically integrated, multi-state cannabis operator announced that it has reached a definitive binding agreement (the “Agreement”) to acquire Nature’s Remedy of Massachusetts, Inc. and certain of its affiliates (collectively, “Nature’s Remedy”), a vertically-integrated single state operator in Massachusetts, for total consideration of up to US$110 million (the “Acquisition”). Nature’s Remedy currently operates two retail dispensaries, in Millbury, MA and Tyngsborough, MA, and a 50,000 sq. ft. cultivation and production facility in Lakeville, MA with approximately 19,500 sq. ft. of high-quality indoor flower canopy and state-of-the-art extraction and manufacturing capabilities (the “Lakeville Facility”).

“We are excited to announce that we have signed a definitive agreement to acquire Nature’s Remedy, a vertically integrated business operating high-quality, well-managed assets in Massachusetts,” said Jim Cacioppo, Chief Executive Officer, Chairman and Founder of Jushi. “Our entrance into Massachusetts will mark the seventh state where we operate cannabis assets and the third state where we are vertically integrated. This acquisition will enable us to rapidly build scale in an important, maturing adult-use market with a defensible retail position and a solid cultivation footprint with significant opportunities to expand. Upon closing, we look forward to working with the current management team to maximize Nature’s Remedy assets, while introducing our own best-in-class brands and high-quality products to the Massachusetts market [watch video here].”

Cultivation and Product Manufacturing Facility of Nature’s Remedy

The 50,000 sq. ft. Lakeville Facility is located within a 185,000 sq. ft. industrial complex. Currently, the Lakeville Facility’s flower canopy encompasses approximately 19,500 sq. ft., which Nature’s Remedy expects to expand to approximately 31,000 sq. ft. during the second half of 2021. The Lakeville Facility utilizes COextraction and has a full kitchen for edible production. Current flower production at the Lakeville Facility is approximately 6,800 lbs. / year, which, as part of the expected expansion, Nature’s Remedy could increase to approximately 11,000 lbs. / year based on 31,000 sq. ft. of canopy. In addition to the above-mentioned expansion, Nature’s Remedy is evaluating further expansion opportunities in the existing Lakeville industrial complex and/or on ten acres of land owned by Nature’s Remedy in Grafton, MA. The Lakeville Facility could potentially accommodate an additional 18,000 to 20,000 sq. ft. of flower canopy through the expansion into approximately 26,000 sq. ft. of adjacent space in the existing building. In Grafton, MA, Nature’s Remedy has a Host Community Agreement in place with the city and recently received a provisional cultivation license from the Commonwealth. The ten acres of land in Grafton, MA could potentially accommodate a 35,000 to 40,000 sq. ft. new facility with approximately 18,000 sq. ft. of flower canopy. These expansions are subject to business evaluations and needs, and receipt of applicable regulatory approvals.

Millbury Dispensary

The Millbury dispensary is located in the town of Millbury, MA just south of Worcester, MA. The Millbury dispensary caters primarily to the local population and surrounding underserved areas. The Millbury dispensary provides ample parking for its patrons and is strategically situated along the Worcester-Providence Turnpike, which sees approximately 10,600 cars per day. The Millbury dispensary is located in close proximity to the Shoppes at Blackstone Valley, the largest open-air shopping center in Central Massachusetts, and the Mass Turnpike. Upon closing, Jushi will immediately implement its best-in-class, customer-focused retail approach at the Millbury dispensary, which includes its online reservation ordering platform.

Tyngsborough Dispensary

Tyngsborough is located in northern Middlesex county just south of Nashua, New Hampshire. The Tyngsborough dispensary is strategically located in close proximity to the Pheasant Lane Mall, one of the largest malls in New Hampshire, as well as in close proximity to an exit on Route 3 / Northwest Expressway, which sees 60,000 to 80,000 cars per day. There is ample customer parking with potential for expansion. Upon closing, Jushi will immediately implement its best-in-class, customer-focused retail approach at the Tyngsborough dispensary, which includes its online reservation ordering platform.

Agreement Terms

Under the terms of the Agreement, Jushi has agreed to acquire Nature’s Remedy for an upfront payment of US$100 million (subject to purchase price adjustments as set forth in the Agreement), comprised of US$40.0 million in cash, US$55.0 million in subordinate voting shares of the Company (the “Company Shares”)1 and a US$5.0 million unsecured promissory note.2 The Company has also agreed to issue up to an additional US$10.0 million in Company Shares upon the occurrence or non-occurrence of certain conditions after the closing date (the “Additional Consideration”), bringing the total potential consideration for the Acquisition paid by the Company to US$110 million. The purchase price (inclusive of the full US$10.0 million of Additional Consideration) is expected to represent a multiple of approximately 4.5 to 5.0x Nature’s Remedy’s full year 2021 EBITDA3 and approximately 2.9 to 3.2x Nature’s Remedy’s full year 2022 EBITDA.3

The Acquisition, which is expected to close in the second half of 2021, is subject to certain customary closing conditions, including clearance under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act and approvals from other applicable regulatory authorities. Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the Company has the right to terminate the Agreement within 30 days of execution if the Company is not satisfied with its due diligence of Nature’s Remedy for any reason. In addition, the Company has the right to terminate the Agreement if the average of the daily volume weighted average price for a Company Share for the fifteen (15) trading days immediately preceding the closing date (the “Closing Share Price”) would be equal to or less than eighty percent (80%) of the average of the daily volume weighted average price for a Company Share for the fifteen (15) trading days immediately preceding the Agreement’s execution date (the “Execution Share Price”) and Nature’s Remedy has the right to terminate the Agreement if the Closing Share Price would be equal to or less than sixty percent (60%) of the Execution Share Price. There can be no assurance that the Acquisition will be completed.

Price per share calculation is equal to the average of the daily volume weighted average price for Company Share (in United States Dollars) on the fifteen (15) trading days immediately preceding the closing date, and which shall not be less than eighty-five percent (85%) of the closing price for a Company Share (in United States Dollars) on the trading day immediately preceding the closing date.

2 The promissory note provides for cash interest payments to be made quarterly, a five-year maturity and all principal and accrued and unpaid interest due at maturity.
