Broadwind Energy Inc.'s heavy steel fabrication company, R.B.A. Inc., has acquired a second facility that more than doubles the company's manufacturing space and significantly increases its capacity.

R.B.A., an industrial mechanical contractor in Manitowoc, Wis., provides subcontract machining, fabrication, refurbishing, welding and assembly for several industries, including the manufacture of heavy steel components for cranes used in wind facility construction and turbine erection.

R.B.A. currently occupies a 40,000-square-foot heavy steel fabrication facility in Manitowoc, Wis. The new facility in Clintonville, Wis., comprises approximately 60,000 square feet and covers nearly 20 acres.

In addition, R.B.A.’s founder, Raymond Brickner III, has announced his retirement from his position as president of Tower Tech Systems Inc., a Broadwind-owned wind tower and offshore wind tower monopile manufacturer, which he also co-founded. Brickner also has resigned as president of Broadwind Energy.
