Missoula, MT (PRWEB) January 24, 2012
Forest Business Network (FBN) recently took its popular forest industry news website—dedicated to forestry, biomass, biofuels, wood pellets and more—to the next level when it launched its newly-redesigned, industry-leading site at http://www.ForestBusinessNetwork.com.
New Look – New Resources
FBN’s website has long been known as an authority in the forest products industry for its comprehensive database of news articles, industry information and events calendar. Looking to elevate user experience and improve its ability to serve the industry, FBN commissioned Men with Pens, an award-winning web design firm, to rebuild the site from the ground up. While the distinct, clean layout and intuitive navigation grab reader’s attention, it’s the new, industry-specific tools and resources that really shine.
Comprehensive News Coverage
The revamped FBN website covers the entire gamut of forest industry news topics—biomass, biofuels, forestry, grants, international trade, logging, sawmills, wood pellets and much more. Visitors can stay up-to-date on FBN’s comprehensive industry coverage by signing up for the company’s email newsletter, read by 10,000 industry-insiders each week.
Biomass Green Ton Converter – An Industry First
More than just a news source, FBN’s new website also offers an extremely useful tool in its brand new biomass green ton converter—an industry first that automatically converts biomass green tons to bone dry tons. The free converter gives working professionals an easy tool for $/ton and weight translations.
Free Forest Industry Classifieds
FBN’s new classified advertising section offers free listings for advertising forest industry specific products and services. Users can promote their brands, offer technical services, sell forest products, list job openings, create want ads, and much more. Listings are good for an initial three months and can be renewed for free. Creating a free account is easy and fast, allowing users to login whenever they like to manage their ads, create new ones, correspond with interested buyers, and more.
“It’s been important for some time that we offer a better resource for those in the forest products industry who have relied on us as a critical component of their professional lives for almost eight years now,” said Craig Rawlings, CEO and president of FBN. “The new site not only achieves this, but gives FBN tools that easily adapt to our company’s rapid growth.”
With a new, user-friendly design, comprehensive news, an industry first biomass green ton converter, and free classified listings, the Forest Business Network website offers a leading, centralized resource for industry professionals.
