Thank You

The RIMPA would like to thank Jeff Wellen and the Staff from Amtrol for sponsoring our general meeting, which was held at their facility in West Warwick. 30 members and guest who attended enjoyed sandwiches while Jeff gave a brief presentation on Amtrol history, products and their continued commitment to our plumbing and heating trade. Following the presentation, we had the pleasure of touring their plant where we could see firsthand how the products we use every day are made. From raw material / manufacturing / to assembly line, beginning to end we seen it all. Personal headsets for each guest made the tour that much enjoyable as we could hear the tour guide clearly as he responded to all our questions. Just a great night enjoyed by all. Thanks again Jeff and Amtrol staff.
