RPM Expanding In Arcadia

3/8/19 – 5:06 A.M.

A precision tool maker in Arcadia is expanding. RPM plans to build a 2,000 square foot warehouse this year. President and owner Eric Metcalfe says they’ll use the building for raw material and scrap storage. He adds it will open up space in the existing facility for more production.

Metcalfe says his big issue right now is finding people to fill jobs. He adds he hasn’t been able to find people who have had an apprenticeship, so he’s hiring younger inexperienced workers. RPM needs about six more people right now.
