Component Web Services Teamed with Addison On Development of Vulcan Materials Website

Online solutions provider Component Web Services teamed with Addison, a NYC-based branding and digital communications design firm, to develop a robust new web presence for Vulcan Materials Company of Birmingham, AL.

Fairfield, NJ, May 10, 2013 — S&P 500 member Vulcan Materials Company now has a web presence that reflects its leadership position as the nation’s largest producer of construction aggregates such as crushed stone, sand and gravel.

The company’s creative agency, NYC-based Addison, tapped Component Web Services (CWS) as a vendor of choice on the project when it was contracted to completely revamp Vulcan’s existing website. Addison took the lead on content development, design and project management while CWS managed the technology build.

According to CWS President & CEO Kevin B. Kimmel, noteworthy functionality includes a redesigned version of Vulcan’s facilities map. Based on geocode location technology, it allows site users to easily locate the nearest Vulcan facility and contact information. The new site also features seamless integration of Vulcan's investor relations content, hosted by Q4 Web Systems.

Says Kimmel, “Our goal is to deliver the best possible user experience by simplifying the process of finding relevant information, and this intuitive locator helps customers quickly connect with the nearest Vulcan location nationwide.”

Vulcan’s updated web presence also includes simplified access to downloadable materials safety data sheets in English and Spanish, credit applications for new customers, and an iPhone/iPad app developed by Vulcan in-house for estimating the amount of material needed for a project.

CWS’ emphasis on positive user experience is not limited to site visitors, according to Kimmel. “Our content management system Sitefinity makes it easy for Vulcan’s IT department and non-technical users to manage site content so it reflects the company’s latest news, product information and sustainability initiatives.”
