Alcan Cable launches redesigned website

PARIS, France, Feb. 2 /CNW Telbec/ - Alcan Cable, part of Alcan Engineered Products - a business unit of Rio Tinto - announces the launch of their redesigned company website showcasing its aluminum and aluminum alloy cable products, rod and strip, and modular wiring systems. The updated website provides a fresh new look and allows customers and visitors to easily identify and access more information and data about Alcan Cable and their products.

"The redesign of the Alcan Cable website conveys a refreshingly new on-line presence for our company," said Howard H. Atkins, Director of Business Development and Marketing at Alcan Cable. "The website demonstrates our multi-national market presence and is the foundation for future website enhancements including interactive on-line tools and reference materials for our customers."

The completely redesigned website consists of five integrated sites in four languages representing Alcan Cable's market presence in the U.S., Canada, Mexico and China. The information on the updated website is organized and presented in a manner that allows the user to easily and logically navigate through the site.

A feature application on the new site is the MODEX(R) Product Assembly Configuration tool that allows the user to design a wiring system by inputting their design specifications. The website utilizes flash designs to highlight product offerings and also includes call out boxes to direct users to specific product promotions and technical documents.
