PILLER USA, INC. TO CONSTRUCT NEW FACILITY IN THE TOWN OF WALLKILL

Piller USA, Inc. plans to construct a new 24,000 square foot light industrial/office headquarters facility on Wes Warren Drive in the Town of Wallkill. Piller USA, Inc. has an existing workforce of 77 employees, with 40 employees based in the Middletown headquarters.

Piller has more than 800 employees worldwide, with global presence and international sales and service partners in more than 50 countries. In the field of power quality, Piller occupies a unique position, being the only company to produce large capacity Rotary UPS and kinetic energy fly-wheel storage systems.

Piller, Inc. entered Orange County in 1995 when it purchased KW Control Systems, Inc., in the Town of Wawayanda, and remained there until 2004 when it relocated to the Town of Wallkill. In 2009 its name was officially changed to Piller USA, Inc.

Maureen Halahan, President & CEO of the Orange County Partnership stated, “Orange County is privileged that Piller USA, Inc. chose to remain in the county when other options existed. We applaud Dean Richards, Piller’s President & CEO for his commitment to his employees, the Town of Wallkill and Orange County. This new construction will generate $2.8 in capital investment and support approximately 84 construction jobs. All available resources will be used to ensure this project’s success.”

The groundbreaking ceremony is scheduled for April 24th at 10:00AM at the Wes Warren Dive site.
