Web firms in strategic merger agreement

11 Sep 2007

Two Irish web development firms, one in Maynooth and one in Offaly, have entered into a combined e-business venture, it emerged this morning.

Offaly-based SitesToGo and Maynooth-based InternetLAB have between them over 600 websites developed for established businesses.

The new business will be now known as SitesToGo InternetLAB.

InternetLAB developed e-business sites for Sherry Fitzgerald, DZ Bank and Dawn Farms while SitesToGo offers a full range of updatable websites which help more than 500 SMEs, community groups and organisations to have an effective e-business presence, including ISME and www.hotelreviewsireland.com.

“Both companies and our clients stand to benefit from this co-operation which capitalises on our common strengths and cultures, with a strong emphasis on quality and client relationships,” Bowen explained.

Bowen was recently nominated for the 2007 O2 ‘Women Mean Business’ Awards.

InternetLAB chief executive Vincent Malone said he was enthusiastic about the merger.

“Our clients will benefit greatly from the additional services offered by SitesToGo such as content management systems, search engine optimisation services, ISME WebChecks and a range of other web marketing services,” Malone said.
