Peak North America (PNA), part of the Brian Fehr Group of Companies, is pleased to announce the acquisition of Real Performance Machinery (RPM), effective February 1, 2024. This new development will further position the Peak Group as a premiere North American company focused on the manufacturing and installation of industrial and mechanical equipment for wood processing facilities.
RPM has proven to be a top producer of high quality, technologically advanced log breakdown equipment. With a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Independence, Virginia, and a control systems engineering and production facility in Enderby, British Columbia, the existing and future product lines are second to none in the industry, poising the company for continued success and growth.
Michael Sawer, outgoing CEO of RPM states:
“RPM and our successes can be attributed to the focus on quality and service. We have had an enduring pursuit to provide the most innovative and dependable machinery and equipment the industry has known. This alignment with (BFG) Brian Fehr Group and Peak NA will provide RPM and all its employees the resources and opportunities for continued growth and success. I am extremely proud of all of RPM’s employees and our collective accomplishments. I wish RPM, Brian, BFG and Peak NA the very best and much prosperity in the future.”
“We are proud to now have RPM within our group of companies. From the quality and ingenuity shown in the manufacturing of equipment, to the professionalism of the staff, we couldn’t be happier to work with this team. We see exceptional things in our future and look forward to doing great things with RPM,” says Leif Norrgard, CEO of Peak North America.
RPM will continue to service all current customers and sectors of the wood products industry, reinforcing and enhancing the excellent reputation developed over time by the RPM team. In conjunction with Peak North America, RPM will now offer complete turn-key supply and installation services across North America. With the continued leadership of Shawn Guibergia, Richard Vetter and Daniel Gravely, we look forward to a great future ahead for Peak and RPM.
Our sincere thanks to Michael and Leah Sawer for their leadership and commitment in the building of this company. We wish them all the best on their next adventures.
