RPI Moves To New Location, Larger Building

Replacement Parts Industries Inc. (RPI) – a leader in quality replacement parts for hospital, medical, laboratory and dental equipment since 1972 – has announced its relocation to Simi Valley, just north of Los Angeles, California. RPI moved into the two-story 38,000-square-foot building to accommodate future growth and expansion plans.

RPI purchased the building in Simi Valley then remodeled it to allow for much larger office spaces for the customer service, product development, quality control, marketing, purchasing and accounting departments. The spacious product development lab offers double the space that their previous building would allow, with the shipping and warehouse spaces each doubling in size. This move marks an important milestone in RPI's history.

"As the health care industry experiences phenomenal growth and transformation, RPI has maintained its leadership in the industry by being innovative and making strategic moves at the right time, like this relocation. We carefully considered a number of locations for our move, and Simi Valley met all of our requirements. This move is the next phase of our ever expanding changes to our business of offering our customers quality replacement parts, excellent customer service, and knowledgeable technical assistance. We are proud of the solid contributions we have made to our industry and customers since we first opened our doors in 1972.", said Ira Lapides, president and CEO of RPI."

"Perhaps most impressive about our relocation was the fact that we started the move on a Friday afternoon, and by Monday morning at 8 a.m. we were up-and-running – taking and shipping orders. Many of our customers complimented us and thanked us for this. We never skipped a beat in taking care of our customers. I owe much of this to the loyalty and determination of my employees, the incredible work by our IT team, phone system and construction teams, and the remarkable assistance from the city of Simi Valley and the Simi Valley Chamber of Commerce." added Lapides.

RPI is now located at 625 Cochran Street, Simi Valley, California 90365. The phone numbers (800-221-9723 and 818- 882-8611) and fax number (818-882-7028) remain the same. For more information, visit www.rpiparts.com.
