RPA Development LLC, a designer and manufacturer of fencing and railing products and the machines to produce them, recently purchased and will upfit a 90,000-square-foot facility on Old Mill Road in Mauldin. The company’s $2.8 million investment is expected to add at least 43 new jobs over the next few years.
RPA Development LLC sells under the AAA Fencecrafters brand name, which installs wood, vinyl, chain link and aluminum fence products for both residential and commercial markets across the United States. It also sells under the Snaptight Aluminum brand name, which manufactures aluminum fencing and railing products, and the equipment to produce those products, for both domestic and international markets.
“AAA Fencecrafters and Snaptight Aluminum are highly trusted brand names for quality fencing and railing products, and we are pleased to announce this exciting expansion of our operations right here in Greenville County,” said Ron Allen, president and founder of RPA Development LLC, in a news release. “This organization’s history is deeply rooted in South Carolina and we are excited to embark on this new era of growth and expansion here in our home state. We appreciate the support of the Greenville Area Development Corporation, the Department of Commerce, and all who helped make today’s announcement come to fruition.”
RPA Development plans to have the facility’s upfitting completed in August. Additionally, the Coordinating Council for Economic Development approved a $100,000 set aside grant for the project.
