Founded in 2001, Birch Plastics has solidified its reputation as an influential player in the plastics industry, annually managing over 25 million pounds of virgin and recycled resins for various applications. With their physical operations scaling up, the company recognized the necessity to enhance their digital presence. LaPraim was therefore entrusted with the mission to create a website that not only mirrors Birch Plastics' industry prominence but also functions as an effective platform for organic lead generation, aligning their online growth with their offline expansion.Explore the site

LaPraim has innovatively designed a website for this B2B company, focusing on a design-first approach combined with robust search engine optimization (SEO) and intuitive navigation, aimed at streamlining the decision-making process.
Key to distinguishing Birch Plastics from its competitors is the strategic implementation of SEO within their website. This approach not only caters to current needs but is also adaptable for future product and service expansions. The website's navigation, encompassing both the homepage footer and a keyword-focused sidebar menu, ensures easy access to information, effectively lowering bounce rates, enhancing conversion rates, and fostering trust in the brand's understanding of visitor needs.
To stand out in a competitive online landscape and drive conversions, LaPraim leveraged their expertise in balancing high website searchability and fluid navigation with visually appealing design. This approach was critical in capturing and retaining the attention of their targeted audience, leading to more effective online engagement and conversions.
For Birch Plastics, transitioning from a traditional manufacturing image to a modern, refreshed brand identity was key. LaPraim achieved this through smart design choices, creatively using visual elements related to plastics and introducing innovative branding strategies. This rejuvenation was especially crucial in coherently presenting Birch Plastics' diverse range of services, including virgin and recycled plastic resin, cornhole bag filler, rotational molding resin, polymer testing, plastic recycling, toll plastic compounding, and pulverizing service. The strategic design approach simplified the presentation of these eight distinct services, making them more accessible and understandable to customers.
