    We are looking to refresh our brand and replacing our current website.
    The company is transitioning through an inflection point with new leadership, technologies, innovation and implementation of quality and delivery performance improvements.
    I believe we need to define our brand essence, create new messaging pillars.
    We need to understand through research what our brand means to architects, distributors and contractors.
    Would like to refresh the logo, visual identity standards, etc.

    Our website has little content to guide the user as to applications and benefits.
    Seems like the content is so technical that much of it could be placed on a company portal.
    It is very difficult to find product either through the product search side or by looking up by the appropriate vertical.
    There is no form fill for leads, its non-responsive.
