FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 2012, Akron, Ohio — Hitchcock Fleming & Associates, Inc. and Akro-Mils have been honored by the Web Marketing Association with the 2012 Best B2B Mobile WebAward for the agency’s work on Akro-Mils’ new mobile website.
The MobileWebAwards Competition honors excellence in mobile websites and apps, recognizes the individuals and organizations responsible, and showcases the best in award-winning mobile development.

Akro-Mils’ new mobile site, which launched in February 2012 alongside the company’s new full website, is available on mobile phones and devices at akro-mils.com.
