Charlatte, a member of the Fayat Group of companies, has factory operations in Brienon, France, Bluefield, VA and Crawley, West Sussex, United Kingdom and is the leading manufacturer of battery powered electric airport ramp vehicles throughout Europe and the United States.
Their products include a wide range of baggage tractors, belt loaders, maintenance utility carriers, aircraft pushback tractors, and smaller tractors used for other industrial applications.
Charlatte America has been a long-time client of Planet Media for well over ten years and required that their third website redesign included a client ecommerce portal that would grow with their online company and allow for their airline clients to purchase parts, view maintenance manuals, documentation and tech bulletins for the specific carrier (United, Delta, Southwest, British Airlines, etc.)
The website we developed for them is based around the ExpressionEngine Content Management System and needed to be integrated with Authorize.net for all credit card transactions.
We designed the website to be very contemporary and almost minimalist, to allow the ease of use and the products to be the main attraction.
