HiBlow USA, the North American sales and distribution subsidiary of Techno Takatsuki Co., Ltd., has selected DesignHub to redesign their website. We’ll also create new advertising, to appear in print and online trade publications, for the company.

HiBlow USA handles direct-to-business of the industry-leading HiBlow brand products, including AC linear and DC diaphragm blowers, compressors, and pumps. The subsidiary also supports customers with application engineering, inventory managements, and factory-direct shipping to and from its warehouse in Saline, Michigan.

This is another happy case of client retention for DesignHub. We developed HiBlow USA’s current website in 2010. We’ll re-do the site in WordPress, the popular and proven content management system; this will enable authorized HiBlow USA personnel to make day-to-day changes to the site’s content. Also, the new site will have a responsive design, meaning that its presentation will automatically adapt to the visitor’s access device, whether that’s a desktop or laptop computer, a tablet, or a smart phone.

HiBlow USA’s new website should launch early in calendar year 2017. We’ve already designed a couple of HiBlow USA’s new print and online ads.


Intelligent Vision Systems (IVS) – a new company that develops and provides optical icing detection technology for aircraft, automobile, and infrastructure manufacturers – has launched its website, designed and developed by DesignHub.

IVS technology optically detects dangers of icing ahead in ways that no other technology can. For example, IVS technology can enable aircraft to optically distinguish between clouds containing water, ice, and supercooled liquid droplets. It can also be installed in cars and on roads to give drivers early warning of black ice. These applications can help prevent damage, increase safety, and save lives.

IVS technology was originally developed for applications in space. The company’s technology partner is the University of Michigan College of Engineering’s Department of Climate and Space Sciences and Engineering.

DesignHub’s services to IVS have included planning the new site, designing its user interface, writing and editing content, programming, site build-out, testing, and launch. The site was developed in WordPress, the popular open-source content management system, so IVS’s own personnel are easily able to make day-to-day changes to the site’s content themselves. The site has a responsive design, meaning that its presentation automatically adapts and optimizes to the visitor’s access device, whether it’s a desktop or laptop computer, tablet, or smart phone.
