R-V was founded in 1974 in Honey Brook, PA by Ronald L. Putt and Victor D. Dodd as a small job shop offering custom manufacturing services. In August of 1977, R-V experienced a major fire that virtually destroyed our entire facility, but rather than be deterred, Ron and Vic resolved to rebuild and come back stronger than ever. By September of 1980, R-V’s manufacturing space had been repaired, and our facilities expanded through the 1980s and 1990s to meet rising demand.
Since then, we have grown and diversified through the strategic acquisition of specialized manufacturing companies, and we now boast an in-house engineering team, extensive market-specific expertise, and over 160,000 square feet of fabrication and assembly space. Our expertise as a trusted provider of industrial process equipment is supported by a variety of Fortune 500 customers and technically proven by over 300 certified weld procedures.

Our daily mission is to take our custom welding and fabricated experience to deliver our customers industrial equipment.
