Gravity Digital - Web Design Derby


Machine Building Systems is the UK distributor of the Item modular aluminium profile system for use where industrial equipment is required, both for bespoke automation solutions and mechanical engineering projects.

The company pride themselves on quick delivery times, massive stockholding, excellent build quality, dedicated engineering support and, of course, unsurpassed product quality, making MBS the natural choice for machine builders and end users alike. This is why they needed a website that stacked up to the growing demand for their product range.

Gravity Digital designed and developed the website in close consultation with the team at MBS making sure all of their requirements were taken care of. Adding thousands of products to the site posed a challenge in terms of ensuring it was easy to use, so we needed to design the website so that the user experience wasn’t compromised. The website includes a ‘user-friendly’ search facility and a category system, allowing customers to find relevant products quickly. The site also incorporates a quote system, where users can built up a list of required products, and easily send this through to the sales team at MBS,

As part of the website maintenance contract, we provide support and carry out regular security updates, continuous monitoring, software updates and daily back-ups.

Our old website wasn’t up to the job. Since the new website was launched, we have received great feedback – the design and functionality is exactly what we were looking for.

“One of the biggest challenges was how to display such a large range of products online, whilst keeping the website looking good, and easy to use.

“Working with Gravity, they really helped us to clearly categorise the product range so visitors could easily select to their exact specification.”
