Marinco and Ancor unveil redesigned websites

Marinco and Ancor are unveiling new websites that are tied to a single source of internal, real-time data called DART, or Data Access in Real Time.

“It is important that our Marinco and Ancor customers can easily find the information they need online and that the information is accurate,” Marinco/Ancor business leader G.R. Schrotenboer said in a statement. “The tools and rich features that make up the backbone of this site allow for real-time data to be shown and easily gathered in a variety of formats for our customers.”

The sites offer expanded product information, including specifications for the companies’ inshore-power products, electrical components, tools, wire and accessories.

In addition, resource tabs offer videos, industry standards information, quick charts with product links, FAQs and updated company news. Other features include simple search mechanisms, multiple language translation and “where-to-buy” information.

“We are confident that these new websites reflect the commitment of our leading brands to our customers and their needs,” Schrotenboer added. “Customers want real-time information in one, two or three clicks, and with the tools and features of these websites we can provide that to them.”
