Raypak announces new Web site

Raypak’s all-new, modernized and updated website is now online.  This is more than just a face makeover.   Our key goal was to maximize its ease of use.   For example, the new site includes all documents pertinent to each product line on that same page.  Our greatest challenge was to continue to include the vast amount of product information, from our latest condensing boilers to over 60 years of copper finned tube product innovation.   Many of our boilers with well over 50 years in service are still purring along.   Owners want to keep it that way.  To insure continuity over these many years, and avoid any “TIF” information gap, our previous “Document Library” is still made accessible by link.   Q4 Beta testing with our reps and several customers has received constructive, and extremely positive, feedback.  We encourage all to check the new site.
