When Kelco Industries CEO Kevin Kelly approached MCG for a website redesign, it was a welcome conversation. MCG had worked with Kelly’s companies for a number of years under four different brands: Flex-Weld, Guardian Electric, Advanced Molding Technologies, and Western Consolidated Technologies. Now, Kelly had restructured his companies and was looking to tap MCG with a new opportunity: to bring all four companies under the Kelco brand.
Kelco manufactures precision-engineered solenoids, control grips, switches, relays, coils, injected- and insert-molded products, PTFE and lathe cut rubber, bellows, expansion joints, and flexible connectors. Kelco products are used in almost every industry from medical and security to aeronautics, renewable energy, and transportation.
Working on a company rebrand is not an overnight process. It takes time to implement change, especially for companies that have had the success and longevity of the Kelco companies. Having been in business for over 100 years, their customers were used to working with the individual companies. The new company name required a change in thinking for their employees as well.
The consolidation was an opportunity to introduce existing customers to the wide array of products offered by the other Kelco companies. For example, customers who know Kelco for their HVAC products may not be aware that they also manufacture seals, gaskets, and switches – products that can also be used in their customer’s products and operations.
Four Divisions. One Website.
“The new website allows customers to easily find what they need, and also learn about opportunities for cost reductions across product divisions,” said Kevin Kelly, CEO of Kelco Industries. “Previously, customers who did business with one of our brands didn’t know everything Kelco had to offer. Now it’s one-stop shopping.”
MCG has been happy to provide the following services for Kelco:
- Website design and development
- Consolidate all four companies under one comprehensive website
- Development of strategic communications plan
