Walkden's PJ Web Solutions secured the funding and created the new e-commerce facility on the existing website for Melvyn Tindall's company, which sells the MICO range of High Security Multi-point Locking Systems and Panic Hardware
PJ Web co-founder Sarah Jackson explains: "As an associate member of the Manufacturing Institute we applied, on behalf of our clients, for ERDF funding via the Institute. This money was made available to encourage manufacturers to embrace e-commerce in order to sell their services on-line. Companies such as Tindall Engineering have often stuck to using the more traditional means of selling to their customers and the MI wants to encourage them to embrace the internet in order to reach new markets."
Commenting on the funding received Tindall Engineering MD Melvyn Tindall said: "We now have a great new website which focuses on our products and enables us to sell on-line which is a new approach for our organisation. Obviously, commissioning an e-commerce-enabled website involves a considerable outlay for any organisation but to secure 50% funding through the Manufacturing Institute played a large factor in enabling us to go ahead. Our original website served us really well as an essential marketing tool for the business but this new e-commerce facility takes us a step ahead in our field. The company is going from strength to strength and we recently managed to secure a very prestigious contract to supply panic hardware to a Parisian railway station. "
