The new site features improved functionality and an enhanced experience for users in China
Houston, TX (November 10, 2022) – Smith, a leading independent distributor of electronic components and semiconductors, today announces the launch of its newly updated Chinese-language website. The new site mirrors the company’s corporate website, which was redesigned in late 2021 and includes numerous design features to elevate the user experience and provide a more detailed understanding of Smith’s business model.
“The APAC region remains a growing sector of our business,” said Choon Byun, Chairman, APAC at Smith. “The launch of our new site will help us to better support our Chinese-speaking partners and offer them more tools and resources for addressing their supply chain needs.”
Smith’s Chinese-language website has enabled page-load speeds of up to three times faster than the previous site, streamlining the user experience. The new format will duplicate updates made on the English-language site, allowing for simplified maintenance and consistent branding across both sites. The site offers a chat feature with a Chinese-language option that will automatically translate the chat text for users whose browser language is set to Chinese.
“Our website is often one of the first points of contact with a potential customer, and we have gone to great lengths to ensure our site reflects Smith’s market expertise, commitment to quality, and global presence,” said Mark Bollinger, Chief Globalization Officer at Smith. “The new Chinese-language site will increase access to information about the value Smith offers, and we look forward to sharing even more products, services, news, and market insights with our customers around the world.”
Smith’s new Chinese-language website is live at https://www.smithweb.com.cn.
