Area manufacturer expands market through Internet, joins growing trend among industrial organizations

KITCHENER, Ontario (September 21, 1998) -- Since 1991, BendTech Inc. of Kitchener has enjoyed steady growth by supplying the North American market with custom built machines for the automotive and appliance industries.

Now, through their new Internet web site, BendTech is bringing their products and expertise to a much wider audience.

The web site, located at, is a resource that allows potential customers from all over the world to contact the company, and make inquiries about their products & services. Officially launched on September 11, the site, designed by Kitchener's The Galileo Group, contains features such as a slide-show of completed projects, an interactive contact area, and other general information.

"We are very excited about the opportunities that the Internet holds for us," says BendTech President, Wes Bradburn. "Marketing and promoting your services is always a major challenge, and we see the web as becoming a very valuable component of our business plan."

This has become a trend among manufacturing companies, says Galileo VP of Sales & Marketing, Bryon Thur. "More and more industrial companies are now looking towards the Internet for sales & marketing assistance," says Thur. "Traditionally, the types of businesses that benefited most from the 'net were consumer and service oriented. But as the online population continues to explode in the business sector, industrial and other related organizations are finding an important audience through the web."

The Galileo Group, who is currently developing web projects for a number of other manufacturing companies as well, sees this trend continuing for the next few years. Concludes Thur, "the web has become a standard business tool for analyzing options and searching for suppliers. To take advantage of the opportunities online, manufacturers such as BendTech will continue to utilize the Internet in record numbers."
