E.J. Taylor & Sons goes live

​E.J. Taylor & Sons, established in 1963, is an Essex-based construction company that tackles a diverse range of construction projects from large civil engineering and groundworks projects.

E.J. Taylor & Sons (EJT), established in 1963, is an Essex-based construction company that tackles a diverse range of construction projects from large civil engineering and groundworks projects up to £5m in value right through to a new bathroom and almost everything in between.  

A recent project of note was the completion of a roundabout for the well known jam producer, Tiptree Jam, at their factory in Essex. The company’s fleet of liveried vans and cars (totalling 177 vehicles at the last count!) are a frequent sight on the roads of Essex.

EJT have been a client of ours since 2005, and we’ve worked with them on a number of graphic design and print projects and we’ve always been eager for the chance to redesign their website so we were thrilled to finally be appointed to complete the project.

The company’s existing website, which we’ve always hosted, but was designed and built internally was over 10 years old and was long overdue a complete redesign and redevelopment.  It was no longer a good representation of the business, which has benefitted from significant growth in recent years to a staff of 265 and £40m turnover and did not showcase any of the company's more recent projects, which made it an ineffective tool for promoting the business to prospective customers large and small.

So working with the IT Manager at EJT we set about delivering a website the company could be proud of and to properly showcase the award-winning projects they have completed and celebrate the proud history and achievements the company has made.

The website is responsive and adapts to the user’s screen size, which required careful consideration in terms of how the company’s branding would be presented.  The website is built using Craft CMS, which enables EJT staff to quickly and easily update and add content to the website as necessary.

We’re excited to be working with EJT to continue to expand and grow the website.  Soon we’ll be launching a new case studies section, which features stunning aerial drone footage of EJT’s recent projects.

We took the opportunity of redeveloping the website to also migrate it to our load-balanced cloud web hosting infrastructure at Amazon Web Services, which was conducted as part of a zero-downtime switchover as the new website launched.
