The Situation

Simply put, Wolkerstorfer Co, Inc. needed a better website. As a provider of Nadcap accredited services to the defense and aerospace sectors, Wolkerstorfer operates in a world where much of their business comes from partner websites. This means their website serves a different function than most businesses who need to drive traffic and new business primarily through organic or paid strategies. Instead, Wolkerstorfer needed a simple yet effective virtual business card to educate interested customers on their offerings and capabilities. In their space, size matter when it comes to the facilities used for production. Wolkerstorfer Company has some of the largest metal finishing equipment in the Midwest, making them unique and highly sought after. Providing this information along with the specifics of their metal treatments is what they most needed their site to accomplish. They needed a partern who understood that and was willing to work with their specific needs, while also making the most of their digital marketing efforts.
