About Us

Rayco Process Services, Inc. specializes in the installation of sanitary process piping systems and custom fabrications for the food, beverage, cosmetic and restaurant industries. We work with end users, engineering companies, architects, as well as other Commercial and Industrial contractors. We also specialize in onsite repairs at restaurants and nursing homes for those items that cannot be brought to our shop.

The company was started in 1984 by Ray Long, Sr. and Karen Long as a sole proprietorship under the name Ray's Welding. It was later incorporated in Pennsylvania in 1990. In March of 1992, the name was changed to Rayco Process Services, Inc. After Karen's passing in April 2019, Ray Long, Sr. remains as the sole proprietor and runs the business with the help of his children Ray Long, Jr. and Karen Wilson along with his son-in-law Brian Wilson.

Ray Sr. is still very active with the business and has previously worked in various construction trades and sheet metal fabrication jobs in his early years learning many of the skills that make up his well-rounded experience. He has worked the last 40 years specifically in the food, beverage, and cosmetic industry. He is the President of the company but has always preferred to work hands on in the field or in the shop.

Ray Long, Jr. is the Vice President and Lead Estimator and will be your first contact when looking for pricing or discussing a project. He has been with the company since 1985 as a part time employee while in school. After graduating from Penn Manor Vo-Tech and Thaddeus Stevens School of Technology in 1990, he became a full-time employee.

Susan Esh is the Office Manager and has served under Karen since 1989. She stepped into this important role in May of 2019. Susan handles all billing and payables for the company.

Brian Wilson is the project Manager and leads his team of workers whether on-site or at our fabrication shop. He has been with Rayco Since 1990 and is well versed in the requirements of our work.

Our fabrication shop is located south of Lancaster City in Willow Street, PA. While most of our work involves TIG welding, we also perform all other types of welding. We have the capacity to shear up to 3/16" thick material, bend up to 3/16" material and roll 10 ga. material. We can also bend pipe and tubing up to 1 ½" in our hydraulic benders which is used mainly for fabricating handrails. Most of our projects are made using stainless and aluminum materials but we can also build things from mild steel.

Rayco's mission is to complete each project in the most cost efficient manner with quality or work being the top priority. We understand the needs & requirements of our customers and will work to schedules and changes as they arise. It is our goal to always be welcome at a customer's site and to deserve the loyalty we hope to achieve.
