Electrogenic Rebuild

The Background

Electrogenic are a world-leading company in converting classic cars and agricultural vehicles to electric power.

The Problem

The existing website was built on WordPress, allowing for easy updates. Electrogenic loved the design but it was very slow, with load times in excess of 9 seconds.

The Solution

Completely rebuild the website using a lightweight theme and replicating the previous design exactly.

The content which had been added using a builder theme plugin was converted to WordPress’ Block Editor, and more-streamlined plugins were sourced for things like the homepage carousel, efficient caching and WebP implementation. Finally the website was given a new home on a much faster server with more resources.

Load time was reduced to around half a second.
