The Brief

Hydroflux approached COG Branding with a simple brief – design develop and host our eight WordPress Websites.

Sounded like a simple brief, though if you’ve ever worked with engineers you’ll know that simple to an engineer is complex for everyone else. The task for COG Branding was to develop a strategic and unified tech stack to launch and manage the website ecosystem for the Hydroflux business, and have to reach their global water management market.

A core component to the brief was to ensure security, uptime and redundancy backups, plus staging environments to ensure offline developments could continue while a BAU position could be maintained by The Hydroflux Group.

With a aggressive growth strategy, and a large number of Hydroflux team members being technical the level of support needed to be high to meet the demands and traffic volumes expected.

The Client

The Hydroflux Group consists of eight specialist water and wastewater treatment companies. These integrated businesses undertake design and construction projects, and provide aftermarket services to the municipal, mining and industrial sectors.

The Hydroflux Group is made up of established privately, owned Australian business dedicated to all aspects of water and wastewater treatment management systems.
