Last summer, following an extensive pitch process, we picked up the digital account with one of the UK’s leading builders merchants, EH Smith.
The brief was to design & build a family of websites, along with a fully integrated enterprise level e-commerce system – the first of which will be launched in April 2010 for the core business. EH Smith was established in Birmingham in 1922 and has grown to become one of the largest independent builders merchants in the UK with a turnover of approx £120 mil. The company has 8 trading locations across the Midlands and South East, which have been serving local trade professionals and the general public for many years.
The primary goal for the development of this website was to allow customers to fully understand the extent of services EH Smith can offer. With the imminent launch of its customised enterprise level e-commerce system, customers will have the opportunity to review and purchase its wide product range and specialist services.
