A company that assembles and repairs motorized pulleys in Wilmington is expanding, with new space for the firm under construction at Northchase Industrial Park.

Construction of the new Rulmeca Corp. facility at the industrial park, an addition to the existing building at 3200 Corporate Drive that is underway by Wilmington-based Thomas Construction Group, officially began in February, according to a Rulmeca Corp. news release.

The new location "will substantially increase floor space for motorized pulley assembly and repair, while also increasing office space required for the expanded staff," the Rulmeca news release stated.

"We started this company in 2003 and we have grown, and now we've outgrown our present facility in Dutch Square," said Mike Gawinski, president of Rulmeca Corp. 

The company currently occupies a building at 6508 Windmill Way at Dutch Square in Wilmington, with plans to move to the new Northchase Industrial Park facility by this summer. Rulmeca Corp. will occupy Suite D at 3200 Corporate Drive. 

Rulmeca Corp. is a subsidiary of the Rulmeca Group. 

Of Rulmeca Corp., Gawinski said, "Our responsibility here in Wilmington is to serve the U.S. and Central and South American markets . . . We provide applications engineering on motorized pulley belt conveyor drives, as well as sales and service of these products, some of which are enormous," weighing up to 10,000 pounds.

The additional space comes with numerous benefits, company officials said.

"Organizing our assembly departments by product size will improve our efficiency. It will also enable us to segregate food processing products, with their special handling requirements, from bulk handling products,” Gawinski said in a news release.

In 2003, the company mainly focused on serving the mining sector, but expanded in 2013 to other markets, including food processing and unit handling, Gawinski said.

The Wilmington facility can currently make its own pulley shells, a component of motorized pulleys, because the firm obtained a CNC machine, an automated lathe, last year. The company plans to add another CNC machine this year.
