It’s been a little while since I was involved in the launch of a website, let alone the creation of one. The addition of a new company to our group, du Pré Marine, has provided the excuse to dust off skills and catch up with the current state of various content management platforms.
At first I was considering using WordPress for the site; it seems to be much greater than a mere blogging tool now and I really enjoy working with it on here when I have the time. But in the end I selected Joomla. It took a few hours and a couple of headache pills to get to grips with it. However the end result is good and it gives us a basis for getting going with the first of our product lines in the new company, FLIR thermal imaging cameras.
We already have our eyes on further marine product lines although the aim will be to concentrate on a small number of high quality products. Double First has just had its biggest ever year and there’s lots of good things happening at du Pré so it’s going to be a busy 2010 for all three companies.
