WORCESTER, Mass. — Specialty tire distributor Ken Jones Inc. has redesigned its website to make it easier to buy hard-to-find tires and tire sizes among its inventory of tractor, mower and construction tires, tire chains, tubes and more.
"So many customers have told us they love how easy it is to use our old website. That was one of the many reasons we held off from having a new website built," said Brian Jones of Ken Jones.
"We wanted to make sure we could still keep the user experience as easy as possible, while taking advantage of the improvements in today's web platforms."
The company said the website features an improved search function as well as the ability to host videos and other resources that help buyers find products for their application and budget.
Other highlights of the site include a fast-order option; an onsite blog; free reports with information for consumers; more products and product pictures; manufacturers' specifications; and affiliate programs.
In addition, video reviews and audio help files will be coming soon.
Wholesale customers such as tire dealers, equipment dealers and golf courses will still have 24/7 access to ordering online at their wholesale pricing level.
Ken Jones will continue to offer live chat with a specialty tire, chain and tube expert on the site.
"In the specialty tire business, buyers have many questions and want to speak to an expert, " Mr. Jones said.
"We're here, ready and willing to help."
Ken Jones Tires is a third generation, family-owned and -operated tire distributor and online seller. Founded in 1938 by Ken Jones, the company is now run by Ken's son, Jerry, and his three sons, Steve, Brian and Darren.
