Sugatsune Kogyo (UK) has launched a new website (www.sugatsune.co.uk) providing details of the company's vast product range, as well as quick and secure online ordering facilities.
Simple and intuitive navigation enables users to view many of the company's 3500-plus products, which include: assisted lift door stays/hinges; conventional, concealed and detent hinges; flush and conventional handles; latching systems; mechanical and magnetic catches; fasteners; casters; adjustable feet; drawer slides; locks; brackets and shelving systems.
Many items are available in 304 and 316 grade stainless steel or titanium to withstand aggressive operating environments - such as those found in the food processing, marine, pharmaceutical and healthcare sectors. In addition, the company's renowned craftsmanship and attention to detail is reflected in the inherent reliability of its products and in the patented Lapcon damping technology on its soft opening/closing devices.
Online product selection is aided by the publication of detailed dimensioned drawings, performance data, material specifications, finish, weight, box quantities and pricing information. Further web pages provide the latest company news and a catalogue request facility.
Commenting on the development, Sugatsune director Mike Rogers says: "We are responding to the needs of our customers by enabling them to evaluate, select and order items around the clock, as well as request technical or product assistance if required. Our new website not only gives greater exposure to our products throughout the UK and Europe, it also serves to highlight the instant availability of the many popular items stocked at our Henley-on-Thames distribution centre."
Sugatsune's e-commerce facilities operate alongside the company's existing order processing and customer support services, which will continue to provide users with one-to-one advice on identifying the most appropriate products for their needs.
Rogers continues: "The new website has been designed for fast and easy updating, enabling us to post information on new products, applications and latest developments straight away. Traffic is growing steadily, along with the volume of business we are conducting online. I am therefore confident that www.sugatsune.co.uk will prove to be an important weapon in our marketing armoury for many years to come."
