The Best Manufacturing Website Design Examples of 2022: Manufacturing Website Designs That Hit The Mark

Written by Jackson Kelly

In today’s marketplace, manufacturing companies are increasingly utilizing digital technology to improve their business from the boardroom to the factory floor. Businesses in the industrial & manufacturing space also require an online presence that communicates the value and quality of their offerings, while engaging multiple audiences, from engineers to purchasing to C-level management.

Research has found that nearly three fourths (70%) of a buyer’s journey happens online, before they initially reach out to your sales department. That means that your prospects are going online, reading reviews, and seeking out additional educational material to help their decision making. All before they make a single call. The website’s role is more important than ever, in attracting, engaging, and inspiring prospects to reach out to you.

Manufacturing websites designed with a proper flow, organization, and wording can earn the sort of increased lead quality and quantity all companies are hoping for. We’ve gathered a few of our current and all-time favorite manufacturing web design examples below.

How to Design a Great Manufacturing Website

There are several patterns that lead to the success of these manufacturing websites. A high-performing manufacturing website will quickly and efficiently inform your prospects on your products and services, answer their questions online, before they need to reach out to sales, and instill trust in your company. Here are a few additional key points:

  • Leading with a positioning statement on banner images clearly tells your site visitors what your company is about and what you have to offer them
  • Offer clear navigational paths for different types of offerings, or the needs of different users or personas
  • Provide intuitive filtering where it will help the user find the right product or example for them
  • An optimized resource section or blog that’s regularly updated with industry-specific news and other content helps you stand out as a thought leader
