Placon’s Medical Packaging Division, Barger, Launches a Redesigned Website with Personality

October 6, 2014

ELKHART, IN (OCTOBER 6, 2014) – The new site is all about the user. The easy to navigate, responsive site, renders easily on mobile devices and tablets with touch-friendly functionality. While the new design has a clean look, important to a company operating certified Class 8 clean rooms, it’s not “cold” thanks to the distinctive design elements and bold photography that features the company’s own employees.

A division of Placon, a leading North American thermoformer of custom and stock plastic packaging, the Barger site visually connects the two companies together by building the sites using the same site structure while at the same time establishing a wholly separate identity and personality that’s unique to Barger.

The site, designed by Minneapolis strategic and creative design agency, Larsen, features simple navigation with messaging that easily communicates the company’s core capabilities from creative design and precision thermoforming to products including thermoformed medical trays, BargerGard® protective packaging, die-cut lids and mounting cards.
