Rockford Systems redesigns website

Rockford Systems launched a new version of its website,, offering clearer navigation and more powerful search tools for its more than 10,000 machine safeguarding products.

Rockford SystemsThe reorganized site makes it easier for customers to locate safeguarding products that match their immediate needs based on machine type, and more efficient for them to bring their operations into OSHA, ANSI and NFPA 79 compliance.

"Rockford Systems is dedicated to keeping an open line of communication between our customers and the company," said Carrie Halle, vice president of marketing, Rockford Systems, LLC. "In redesigning our site, we listened to and analyzed customer feedback before responding with a faster, more precise way to search out safeguarding solutions based on machinery type or product category using a highly logical, well-defined structure. For example, if a customer needs to safeguard a drill press but doesn't know which safeguarding products are required to be OSHA/ANSI compliant, they can simply go to our Products page, click on Drill Press and a wide range of compliant solutions will be presented."

Research conducted by Rockford Systems suggests that more than half of the operating machinery in America's manufacturing plants is not in compliance with nationally recognized safety standards, often lacking in the most basic of machine safeguarding protection. It also indicates that customers may not be aware of requirements or be under the false impression that all new machinery is shipped with necessary safeguarding or that older machinery is "grandfathered in" and therefore immune to compliance regulations. By referencing a machine, rather than a part number, the new Rockford Systems website educates customers on precisely what is needed to protect their employees, machinery and compliance.
