Company Begins Moving Into New Wilmington Space

By Cece Nunn, posted Aug 16, 2018
A company that assembles and repairs motorized pulleys in Wilmington began moving into bigger space this week.

Rulmeca Corp. started relocating the company’s headquarters from Windmill Way to 3200 Corporate Drive on Tuesday, according to company officials. 

"With lots of equipment, inventory, and furniture to be moved, the company will not be completely relocated for a few more weeks," a company newsletter stated Thursday.

"After 13 years, we bid adieu to our 12,500-square-foot facility at 6508 Windmill Way, Wilmington . . . Rulmeca Corporation reaches another milestone as we began the move to a larger more suitable facility in Wilmington. How do you move dozens of tons of steel, iron, oil and wood? One pound at a time. Our staff, supplemented by local help, is packing Motorized Pulley components, storage racks and assembly equipment into crates and onto pallets for the 3.5-mile journey."

Construction of the new Rulmeca Corp. facility at the industrial park, an addition to the existing building at 3200 Corporate Drive by Wilmington-based Thomas Construction Group, officially began in February, according to a previous 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 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., in March in a Greater Wilmington Business Journal story

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