Vendor NewsWest Chester Protective Gear, a leading supplier of hand protection, rainwear and protective clothing, announces the launch of its enhanced web presence with new sites for corporate, industrial, and welding product information. A site for retail consumer products and services is slated for release in late Q1.

The corporate site provides general information about West Chester Protective Gear including product line overviews, careers, events, and news. From the corporate site, visitors can quickly jump to the appropriate division site.

The Industrial site / is aimed at safety distributors and end users and provides product information to aid in selection of personal protection equipment products.

Visitors also have the option to view and download the Industrial products catalog.

The IRONCAT® site is focused on West Chester’s welding line of gloves and apparel. Developed by welders for welders, IRONCAT® is designed for the unique heat shielding, dexterity and protection demands of Stick, MIG and TIG welding applications. Like the Industrial site, products are easily viewed and filtered via faceted search functionality for quick information retrieval.

Coming in late Q1, the Retail Consumer site will focus on West Chester products for the retail channel and services for retailers.

Utilizing responsive design, the new web sites deliver optimal user experience for the company’s increasingly mobile client base. The sites are designed to be viewed on smart phones, tablets, and other mobile devices without loss of functionality. The sites are also built to be interactive, allowing for reviews, questions and answers, and social sharing.
