Desktop, tablet, and mobile friendly new website for Ginho, built by the marketing people in Staffordshire

We would like to announce the launch of our new Ginho Group website. Our previous website was not clearly showing our customers exactly what we can offer so by adding a whole section on Our Capabilities, Ginho’s offerings and competencies are now clear. Our specialisms and expertise are emphasised on our new website, for example, our experience in the Automotive industry.

With decades of experience in centrifugal and investment castings, and precision engineering Ginho can provide your business with bespoke and high-quality parts and components. Having global facilities in each major time zone means we can support our customers 24/7 and provide just-in-time delivery wherever you are in the world.

We must thank David and the team at the marketing people for all their help during the process of building our website and improving our brand ID. They hosted consultations that identified our core values and goals and worked from this to decide the most suitable progression and development for Ginho. The new positioning statement ‘Value in Everything’ encompasses everything we strive for as a business, and is the ideal positioning statement for the market we are in. The new website reflects our stronger position in the marketplace and will help us reach out to more clients across Europe.
