FrameCo Framing Case Study

FrameCo Framing Case Study

Client: FrameCo Framing

For many years, the construction industry has been run by traditional stick-built construction methods. These methods involve a lengthy process of materials being shipped to the construction site and the bulk of the construction work occurring on premise. Although this method is tried and true, complications such as weather, safety and timeliness began to pose a problem. Seeing a better way to go about the construction process through prefabrication and wanting to disrupt this largely traditional industry, FrameCo was founded in 2007, in Cleveland, Ohio.

FrameCo provides pre-manufactured non-structural building panels, as well as offers a consultation component to their business. Through the consultation component, and by using cutting edge BIM programs like Revit and AutoCAD, FrameCo can create 3D models of the client’s project and expertly determine the best construction technique for the job. Through their proven track record of excellence, FrameCo is deemed the highest quality and most efficient company in their market.

The Challenge

FrameCo was challenged with effectively communicating the evolution of the company brand over the past decade in the marketing. Performing a rebrand for any existing company presents many obstacles, as it is very easy to ruin everything the company has worked so hard to achieve and be perceived for. Knowing what buttons to push or what lines not to cross requires a very diverse, competent marketing team experienced in said industry. For this reason, FrameCo was actively seeking a trusted marketing partner to guide them through the complex nature of a rebranding.


Initially, FrameCo’s overall brand identity was a direct reflection of what the company started as back in 2007. As the company evolved and grew over time, the brand and marketing material did not. Every facet of the customer facing marketing mix, website, logo, tagline, social media, required a facelift.

The Solution

Marketing Eye was the marketing agency who was poised to examine FrameCo’s unique needs and craft a carefully thought out implementation plan. Through an intense workshop, Marketing Eye was able to decisively ascertain what FrameCo offered and what their strengths and weaknesses were in the marketing mix respectively.


After a full assessment of FrameCo’s core needs was concluded, Marketing Eye proceeded to map out the marketing strategy for the next 12 months, which would include all projects and action items to be focused on.


Once the 12 month marketing strategy was completed and approved by FrameCo, it was time for implementation. This took place gradually as each project was artfully scheduled piece by piece to build the brand foundation from the bottom up, starting with a new logo and tagline. This would set the baseline for color schemes and the overall tone of key messaging across all FrameCo marketing channels. Following soon after, the website underwent a redesign along with all social media profiles and marketing collateral, including sales decks, sell sheets and product flyers.


Marketing Eye placed a significant focus on competitor research and analysis to ensure that the branding efforts were innovative and cutting-edge without overstepping the industry boundaries during any part of the process.
