Major Expansion for R.P. Machine


R.P. Machine Enterprises, Inc., has broken ground on a new 40,000 square-foot facility at its headquarters in Statesville, North Carolina. The additional space, outfitted with a heavy crane, will allow the company to bolster its current activities while pursuing encouraging new markets.

“This expansion will aid in the development of the G&E gasher line used in manufacturing key components for wind turbine power generation,” according to Richard Piselli, the company’s founder and president, “so it’s a must in terms of helping us stay at the forefront of this growing industry. The new building will also house our high-precision worm and worm wheel division, while also providing the space required for retrofitting oversized gear machinery.”

With an extensive inventory of reconditioned equipment, R.P. Machine also offers CNC retrofitting services, custom gear cutting, and experienced service technicians.
