GAC-Subcon, based in Youghal, are experts in process assembly. Many companies throughout Ireland in sectors ranging from automotive to medical devices trust their skill and expertise and outsource their component sourcing, sub-assembly and final assembly to them.

They had a very basic website when they came to use that made it difficult for potential clients to find information on the range of services provided and the different processes used by GAC-Subcon. They wanted to be able to showcase case studies in a clear and easy to follow format and wanted functionality so that they could reuse custom sections and edit them to fit their needs. GAC-Subcon also wanted a custom “Meet The Team” section on the about page with images and some information on different team members.

Approach

Our Approach For GAC-Subcon

  • After meeting with GAC-Subcon’s appointed representative we designed the home page, about page, team members section, contact page, general content page and a general services page. After several designs and ongoing collaboration, the designs and menu structure were approved and we started coding.
  • We used a video showcasing GAC-Subcon including some drone footage in the header on desktop and mobile. In order to minimise the impact that the video would have on mobile, we adapted the site so that different versions of the video would show depending on the device that was being used at the time. This allowed us to use a video with a much smaller file size and quicker load time to diminish the negative impact it had on site speed.
  • We created a reusable “Meet The Team” section which has images of the people who work at GAC-Subcon and shows their name and position. When hovered over a “More Info” button is shown, when that is clicked it brings the user to a new page with a few bullet points on the individual as well as their contact and LinkedIn details.
  • We built customisable sections to showcase studies, services and processes in an infographic manner. We made sure everything would able to be reused and edited so that GAC-Subcon could add more case studies, services or process in the future without having to come back and pay a developer.
