Based in Frederick, MD, American Computer Development, Inc. (ACDi) is an electronics manufacturing services firm that prides itself on agility, quality, and a focus on doing well by its customers and staff. It serves many markets, including aerospace, defense, and medical and life sciences.
After serving the company for seven years, ACDi was ready to redesign its current website. The team at ACDi wanted a website that would support the company’s sales and marketing efforts by visually communicating who the company is and its services through imagery and storytelling.
The new site reflects ACDi’s emphasis on people, their needs, and how it can help them fulfill those needs. The new site:
- Features large background images showing staff and markets impacted by ACDi services

- Implemented the site in PHP-based CMS WordPress
- Implemented Google Analytics to track usage of the site
