Hydrafab Gets a Makeover


Just as Hydrafab Northwest was preparing to celebrate its 20th year in business, helveticka was called upon to refresh the Spokane-based custom metal fabrication company’s website. The desktop version is a single-page scrolling site; mobile users get a faster-loading, pared-down, dedicated version that still manages to deliver nearly all of the full site’s content. Hydrafab’s growth over the last 20 years has been exponential, in large part because of its ever-expanding service offerings and state-of-the-art equipment. The new site takes advantage of HD video and a comprehensive photo gallery to illustrate the company’s scope of work and broad range of projects, from equipment and installation to sheet metal, tubing, and weldments. And with Hydrafab’s continuing growth comes the need for attracting the right people, so a career page was added to provide a regularly updated list of job openings, each accompanied by an overview of duties and requirements. helveticka provided design, writing, and programming services for both versions of the new site.
