TraceParts launches its new website www.traceparts.com

Faster, more user-friendly and complete: accessing the TraceParts CAD parts libraries has never been easier.

St Romain, December 12, 2006 – TraceParts has announced the launch of its brand new website www.traceparts.com and the closure of its old website web2cad.com, thus marking a crucial stage in the process of merging the technical and marketing aspects of the web2CAD and TraceParts offerings.


The new site will help to consolidate TraceParts’ identity and its position as a major player in the market for parts libraries for CAD users and for technical data distribution solutions for manufacturers. It offers a faster, more user-friendly navigation system, with numerous new headings, such as the gallery featuring examples of electronic catalogs and configuration tools produced for parts manufacturers.

“This new website is the fifth in a line of websites we have created since we started to work with the Internet in 1997, which is a strong indication of longevity and maturity in the IT sector,” explains Gabriel Guigue, Managing Director of TraceParts. “After being in the CAD libraries, electronic catalogs, and configuration tools market for over 15 years, we felt that it was vitally important for us to make our offering clearer and easier to understand. We have therefore worked in close cooperation with our partners and a number of customers in designing the new site, and I have to admit that the result has greatly surpassed our expectations.”
