American Galvanizers Association launches new website

The American Galvanizers Association (AGA) launched a new version of the association website, on September 5, 2013. The new site is responsive, which means the display changes so it is optimized to the user’s device.

In addition to the responsive design, the new website will enhance the user experience with new features, prominently displayed tools, and an improved search function. Building on the advancements of the previous version (launched in 2008), the new site will feature a more searchable Dr. Galv (technical FAQ) section, interactive KnowledgeBase, and more technical content than before. These improved technical resources will ensure accurate, in-depth information is readily available to specifiers and fabricators at all times.

The new site will also easily direct users to some of the AGA’s most valuable marketing and educational resources including the Galvanize It! seminar program, Publications, AGA Project Gallery, Life-Cycle Cost Calculator, and the Galvanizer Locator. These tools help educate members of the specifier community about hot-dip galvanized steel, and ensure they are able to find a provider in their area. All of these resources are prominently displayed on the homepage, as well as in the header and footer of all pages.

Another significant change with this launch is the integration of social media. Throughout the site, users will find social media buttons to share the AGA’s information with others. The AGA has produced a new YouTube video on hot-dip galvanizing displayed on the homepage, and the site footer contains links to all of AGA’s social media pages, so users can interact with the association and stay abreast of news beyond the site.
