Skeans Pneumatic &
Automation Systems

Manufacturing & Product Distribution


Business Overview

Skeans Pneumatic and Automation Systems is a large distribution company with five locations throughout Western Canada. Firstbase was contracted by Skeans to perform a business diagnostic and help improve profitability.

One of the company’s primary deficiencies was that insufficient marketing efforts were taking place. Firstbase worked closely with Skeans’ Marketing Department and established new branding, a new website, and print collateral.

Case Study Results…

Branding works…

The new brand and website helped the company achieve a stronger and more consistent message in their marketplace. Working closely with Skeans staff,
Firstbase was able to deliver a website that allowed Skeans to take control of the site content.

This has given the company the freedom to add products, update news and set up e-mail campaigns directly within the website content management system.

Improved marketing…

Achieving the main objectives from the outset, Skeans marketing efforts improved with the ease of content management and awareness campaigns.

The new branding, website and print collateral improved positioning and opened doors for efficiency in digital marketing to help improve profitability.

  • Firstbase listened to my unique situation and then delivered concepts that worked. Their approach was simple but they dove into the project with a full understanding of what the end-goal was. And boy did they deliver! I’m very excited about the new website, the design is modern, elegant, and functional. It does everything I wanted it to do.

  • Within 4 weeks from the launch of the inside sales activities we have quoted to qualified potential buyers over $8 million dollars and received our first order for a half million dollar project.

  • A year ago I had the great opportunity to find out about Firstbase Services and what they could do for my small business. I was at a crossroad as to how to grow my business effectively so I decided to take the leap and have them formulate a plan to rebrand my product and give my company a chance to grow. Well, using Firtsbase turned out to be the best decision I ever made!
