JUN 23, 1999, M2 Communications - ALTON, England -- Alitex Limited, the Hampshire-based company which has been creating some of the world's finest glasshouses for more than 50 years, now has a presence on the Internet with a new website designed by Town Pages UK Ltd.

Officially launched on 11 June, the new website ( www.alitex.co.uk) gives a comprehensive overview of Alitex's products, services and accessories. The site is generously illustrated with examples of glasshouses, from large constructions for a country estate or municipal park to smaller structures for the typical town garden. There is also information on the company's customer service facilities and its range of accessories, including propagators, lighting, heaters and cold frames.

Customers can use the site to contact Alitex electronically, through the easy-to-use enquiry form.

Alitex Managing Director Tom Hall commented: "in building the Alitex website, Town Pages has managed to create precisely the image crucial to the marketing of our business. I was initially concerned that the website would focus too much on the technical, but I am very pleased to say that the website represents wholly the values of our business.

"Already the website has proved beneficial in bringing us closer to our customers. Alitex has recently invested a great deal of time and resource in the United States and the website will play an increasingly critical role in ensuring that we "exist" across the Atlantic."

Town Pages, web design team, led by Head of Design Paul Boag, has also produced many successful websites for other clients, such as the Windsor International Horse Trials ( www.windsor-horse-trials.co.uk) and www.powercords.co.uk for IDC Plugs, which won fifth place in IPC Format's Feb '99 Top Ten websites.

Exciting new projects in the pipeline include websites for a local yacht club and maritime exhibition and an innovative project aimed at the automobile market.

The Alitex website can be reached via the Internet and via TownPages fast- growing network of free-access online information kiosks. TownPages has already installed public touch-screen kiosks in a number of towns in the South East of England and over the next three years, the company intends to install 3,450 kiosks in locations with high footfall. These include high streets, shopping centres and railway stations across the UK.

Using the kiosks, or TownPages' own branded website on the Internet ( www.townpages.co.uk), people will have access to both local and national news and information. together with specialist web channels covering topics such as health, travel, e-commerce, personal finance, education, heritage and banking.
