McNeilus Steel Forges New Website Presence

Plaudit Design worked with McNeilus to organize the company's information into an easy to navigate website hierarchy. This was achieved by first understanding what McNeilus Steel does and who they are as an organization. This in-depth understanding is key to planning and designing a successful site.

Aaron Tarasenko, COO of McNeilus Steel, celebrated the new design by saying, "I wanted to let you [Plaudit Design] know that you hit this one out of the ballpark. […] It’s like my first shiny bike, I can’t take my eyes off it."

Beyond "shiny" exterior, the site includes many pages with custom layouts that visually communicate content and draw the visitor in deeper while making navigation effortless. This visual communication is taken a step further with illustrations, photos and videos which quickly illustrate McNeilus' extensive and impressive steel capabilities.
