|Barnes Group Inc. Launches Redesigned Web Site|
BRISTOL, Conn., Dec 18, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Barnes Group Inc. (NYSE: B) today announced the launch of a newly redesigned corporate web site, www.barnesgroupinc.com. The new site offers a number of enhancements over the prior version, including improved navigation, a site search tool and the ability to print individual pages.
"The new site makes it far easier for our constituents to locate the information they are seeking. We've greatly streamlined the information on the site, including that of our three business groups: Barnes Distribution, Associated Spring and Barnes Aerospace. And users will now have more flexibility in reaching out to us through a simplified contact form," commented Phillip J. Penn, Barnes Group Inc.'s Director of Investor Relations.
"We wanted to ensure that this new site was extremely efficient for the visitor, while at the same time showcasing the brands of Barnes Group as a whole and each of its three businesses. With this launch, I believe we've exceeded both of those goals," added John Donaldson, Vice President of Donaldson Makoski Inc., an image communications consulting firm located in Avon, Connecticut, that served as the primary architect of the web site's redesign.
Approximately 50,000 individuals visit the site each year.
