Firestone refreshes online presence

Supplier of EPDM rubber-based roofing membranes and lining systems, Firestone Building Products UK and Ireland, says it has made accessing information about the company’s products, capabilities and technical support easier than ever with the launch of a dedicated UK and Ireland website.

The new site is said to provide clear navigation across Firestone’s areas of expertise in roofing, lining, thermal insulation and façades, and features UK-based project case studies, product information and news. The website is reportedly also optimised for use on any device via any browser, making it a useful tool and reference for contractors and specifiers, both in the office and out on site.

John McMullan, commercial manager of Firestone Building Products for the UK and Ireland, said: “In the past, our customers, contractors and specifiers could access information about our products and technical support via our European website but this was not tailored to a UK and Ireland audience. The new website has been designed to be more relevant to the local market.

“Furthermore, all of the features and downloadable content which forms a key part of our European website is now available via www.firestonebpe.co.uk, including up-to-date technical data, safety data, detail drawings, installation guidelines and educational videos.”

The new website is said to include a training section featuring a calendar of planned training sessions at Firestone’s UK headquarters in Cheshire and online sign up to register interest in attending.

John McMullan continued: “We understand that our website is often the first point of contact for specifiers, contractors and clients so we needed to ensure it was easy to navigate and accessible.

“Our investment in the new website is all part of an online strategy that has also seen us engage with contractors and specifiers via social media on Twitter (@FirestonebpUK), and Linkedin (Firestone bpUK) ensuring that our virtual presence online supports the sales, customer service and technical support offered by our talented UK and Ireland team.”
