SAF-Holland has announced the launch of U.S. and Germany regional-specific websites, the first of 26 country and regional sites that will be implemented through 2009. The new global web network will make content available in 18 different languages when completed, the company said.

According to SAF-Holland, the websites feature updated graphics and product images of the company’s products and aftermarket components for trailers, trucks, buses and recreational vehicles, aimed at specific audiences around the world.

“Our programmers were able to improve navigation and search engines for locating products and parts, as well as accessing in-depth service information,” said Tom Wiewiora, Americas IT director, SAF-Holland. “The new sites also assist customers in quickly finding parts and service centers through enhanced search functionality as well as supporting online literature ordering. We’re very pleased and excited with the way our global website team has responded to this formidable challenge.”
