Raven Supplies New Boilers to the Tong Louie Family YMCA

Raven has supplied two new boilers to the Tong Louie Family YMCA in Surrey. The YMCA had received $250,000 in community gaming grants, which were used to upgrade its aquatic centre including an investment in two new boilers.

Working with the contractor Alpha Mechanical, we installed two Fulton Endura+ 3000 ultra high efficiency firetube condensing boilers, alongside Grunfos Magna3 pumps with BACnet communication. These boilers offer great performance and are highly reliable and durable. They also come with a touchscreen control panel, allowing the aquatic centre to quickly configure settings for both boilers at once.

The Fulton Endura+ boilers will not only provide the YMCA with lower operational costs such as fuel savings and decreased maintenance, but they were also eligible for the FortisBC Condensing Boiler Rebate Program. FortisBC provided the owner with a rebate of $27,000 per boiler.

The Community Gaming Grants were created to provide not-for-profits with the necessary funds to purchase equipment and carry out renovations essential to their operations. With the new upgrades including our Fulton boilers, the Tong Louie Family YMCA will be able operate its aquatic centre efficiently and reliably for years to come.

People of all ages and backgrounds visit the YMCA to lead healthy and active lives and learn to swim, gaining entry into recreational swimming and aquatic sports. Raven Supply is proud to have been a supplier for this project; we look forward to seeing families in Surrey continue to access the aquatic centre and all its programs and services.

Tony Pregal Races for Raven Supply and Room to Read

Since 2017, Raven Supply has been sponsoring race car driver Tony Pregal, who races car #99 in the Sports Car Club of British Columbia (SCCBC). In 2019, Tony ranked first in his class in the Grand Touring Modified Under 4.0, and third in the overall SCCBC Club Championship standings.

Tony races at the Mission Raceway Park road course, which the SCCBC calls home, in a very special car. A Hurricane Katrina rescue, his BMW300i traveled all the way to British Columbia, where it was stripped and transformed into a race car.

Today, this rescued car proudly sports the logos of both Raven Supply and Room to Read, the literacy non-profit we support with the generous help of our vendors. For every discount we receive from a vendor, we match the amount with a donation to Room to Read. Our fundraising goal this year is $30,000 to send 50 girls in Vietnam to school for a year. Tony also supports Raven’s Room to Read projects.

Room to Read creates world change by focusing on literacy and gender equality in education. Over 18 million children and counting have benefited from Room to Read’s achievements, which include establishing libraries, publishing local language children’s books and running a Girls’ Education Program.

In addition to race car driver and literacy advocate, Tony is talented in more ways than one. Did you know he is also a certified technician for Fulton Boilers? Off the track, he is our go to person when we need technical support for our Fulton products.

Racer or technician, we are proud to be sponsoring Tony. Join us in cheering him on from the stands as he races to win and to support literacy!

Linna Heads to Fulton

Last month, Linna attended Fulton’s Sales Training in Pulaski, New York. This training covered Fulton’s hot water boilers, steam boilers, and thermal fluid boilers over the course of three days. Linna had very high expectations going into training, and Fulton did not disappoint!

Along with building boilers Rugged, Robust, and Reliable, it will not be long until the Fulton name becomes synonymous with innovation. Even after producing boilers that are known for their quality, they continue to find ways to make their boilers even more Rugged, Robust, and Reliable. During her training, Linna had the opportunity to see Fulton’s new Endura+ (Condensing Hydronic Boiler) and VSRT (Vertical Spiral Rib Tubeless Steam Boiler). Together, these products have no less than 50 patents pending worldwide!

Although seeing the construction of the boilers was a very interesting part of the training, Linna was most impressed with the team they have at Fulton. Every individual she met shared two common attributes: They were eager to learn, and always ready to share their knowledge. With a team that values continuous growth and has the ability to effectively pass on their wealth of knowledge, it is no wonder Fulton is able to attract and retain bright individuals capable of keeping Fulton the most innovative company in the boiler industry.

Fulton Boiler Training, New York

This week Brian and Ashley traveled to Pulaski, New York to attend Fulton Boiler Sales Training. During the training, they covered Fulton hot water boilers, Fulton boiler controls, Fulton steam boilers and Fulton thermal fluid boilers. They were very impressed to see what an innovative company Fulton is. They have a large staff of young engineers and are willing to invest the time and money required to bring Fulton to the top of the boiler industry.

During their stay in Pulaski, Brian and Ashley stayed at the Tailwater Lodge a local fishing lodge that was previously an Elementary School. With Pulaski being so close to Lake Ontario, they even got to enjoy their first snowfall! This part of New York is known for its fishing, hunting and of course Fulton boilers.

After each training session, we got to tour the manufacturing plant and see the processes for constructing these boilers and why Fulton can say they build their boilers Rugged, Robust & Reliable. One thing that really stuck out for both Brian and Ashley was the skid boiler systems. These aren’t your regular boiler skid packages. Fulton skid mounts the boiler and all other ordered equipment such as pumps, feed tanks & blow down separators if required. Then the equipment is completely wired and piped so all that is left to do is connect to one supply line, one return line, and one electrical connection.
