Johns Manville (JM), a Berkshire Hathaway company and global building and specialty products manufacturer, today announced that it has launched a redesigned corporate website that consolidates the multiple websites it previously used to present information to the public and its customers. The updated, solution-driven website, available at www.jm.com, utilizes responsive design for more adaptability with tablets, smartphones and other mobile devices.
Historically, users could obtain JM information via a number of websites, including www.jm.com, www.jmeurope.com, www.specjm.com and www.jmhomeowner.com. The various websites were designed to meet the unique needs of specific audiences, including contractors, manufacturers, building professionals, homeowners, and prospective employees. With the updated website, users receive an improved brand experience while continuing to easily access the information they need. The consolidated website provides a better opportunity to see the breadth of JM’s product offerings, and allows users to quickly access information using a variety of devices.
The redesigned website is available in English. Content is currently being translated and in the coming weeks, sections will be available in Canadian French, Chinese, German, Slovak, Spanish and Swedish for the convenience of the company’s global customers and other interested parties.
“We undertook this significant effort to support the growing needs of our diverse customer base,” said Mary Rhinehart, JM president and CEO. “With additional language capabilities, clear navigation, and easier access from mobile devices, this is a solution-driven website that delivers an outstanding user experience.”
Chief Information Officer John Shellenberger said the entire JM organization is excited for customers and the public to visit the redesigned website.
“Our new website captures JM’s true character and conveys the things that are important to us, like integrity, dependability, product expertise, and customer relationships,” said Shellenberger. “Plus, it caters to all of our audiences through one streamlined website. We think users will be pleased with the content, the look and feel, and the ease of use.”
JM worked with gyro, a global leader in business-to-business marketing and advertising, to design and develop the updated site. Crown Partners, a systems integration software and consulting company, also worked with JM to ensure that a modern, robust content management system was at the heart of the redesigned website.
“Our vendors, gyro and Crown Partners, were invaluable to this process, and we’d like to thank them for their dedication to the project,” said Shellenberger.
