John Jordan | May 7, 2015
TOWN OF WALLKILL—The Orange County Partnership reported recently that 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 at its 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 flywheel 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 and 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 and CEO for his commitment to his employees, the Town of Wallkill and Orange County. This new construction will generate $2.8 million in capital investment and support approximately 84 construction jobs. All available resources will be used to ensure this project’s success.”
