Jeremy Hercock, the great grandson of the founder of William Hercock Builders Merchants, contacted us to build a new website. The aim was to effectively promote the products and services of the companies three depots, whilst still providing a fitting tribute to the family run business.


We visited the original William Hercock depot in Melton and learned about the history of the company, the products that they sell and the staff that are still part of the family today. This helped to shape the design direction which was to always have one eye looking to the future, whilst the other was looking to their enviable trading history.

We also created a back-end database so that their administrators can add and update the William Hercock product range. Each product can be categorised, add costings, sizes, links and images, and has been future proofed for if/when the company moves to an automated stock control system that we can link with.


Just wanted to say a massive thank you to the team for the work you have done - we are very, very happy with the results so far. I am also glad to report we even had our first enquiry (now order!) through the "contact us" section on day one! Your happy customer! - Jeremy Hercock, Managing Director
