Lampin MITRPAK Achieves 18 Percent Revenue Growth in 2014

UXBRIDGE, Mass., March 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Lampin MITRPAK, a right angle gearbox and spiral bevel gear drive specialist, is proud to announce an 18 percent revenue growth in a year-over-year comparison from FY 2013 to FY 2014. MITRPAK’s growth is attributed to new OEM customers and new applications of the product line.

A major U.S. based engineering & fabrication company has developed a large application system which uses MITRPAK products to instantly set up and fold away stadium seating. This application is currently designed for enclosed sports arenas that support both Hockey and Basketball at the same venue and constantly move bleacher seats to accommodate both. The client has just completed installation of this system at  one of the most well-known professional sports arenas in the United States. They have plans to expand this throughout the United States.

“Lampin MITRPAK is committed to supplying quality gear drives that run smoothly and boast a long life,” said Lampin MITRPAK President, Bill DiBenedetto. “We were competing with a foreign supplier for the movable seating project, but we made a compelling case that MITRPAK was the best option for the application due to our superior quality and service.”

MITRPAK expects to see continued growth through 2015. The company’s recent investment in new equipment enables the company to increase capacity, broaden their capabilities, and reduce lead time. Major new potential clients for 2015 include an international manufacturer of electric vehicles, and one of the largest recreational boating manufacturers currently developing a line of pedal-powered kayaks.

“Lampin MITRPAK, in our own small way, wants to contribute in order for the United States to remain competitive in the global manufacturing arena,” said DiBenedetto. “This is why it’s critical that we maintain a consistent growth from year to year.”

Officials convene in Pawtucket to discuss R.I.’s first national historical park

PAWTUCKET — A month after President Obama signed legislation establishing Rhode Island’s first national historical park, officials held the first meeting on Monday to work out the boundaries of the park along the Blackstone River and develop a management plan.

The meeting was held in downtown Pawtucket, a stone’s throw from Old Slater Mill, which is regarded as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution in America and will be a key piece of the Blackstone River National Historical Park. The park will also include the Museum of Work and Culture in Woonsocket, as well as three more Rhode Island sites and three sites in Massachusetts.

Officials from both states, as well city and town leaders and representatives of community groups, were at the meeting to start laying the groundwork for the national park, the 402nd in the United States.

“We want to make sure everyone has a voice — the mayors, the planners for all the communities,” said U.S. Sen. Jack Reed, the Rhode Island Democrat who wrote the act that created the new park.

He said the park will be an important cultural resource — and a tourist attraction.

“We can use the park to educate visitors about the history and culture of Rhode Island,” he said. “It’s another reason to come to Rhode Island.”

The park is located within the John H. Chafee Blackstone River Valley National Heritage Corridor, which runs from Worcester to Providence and was established in 1986. The idea for the park was hatched in 2003 as part of an effort to better protect the cultural sites along the river, said Bob Billington, director of the Blackstone Valley Tourism Council.

“The history was always here, but we always wanted the opportunity to tell it on a national level,” he said.

Those many years of work on the proposal for the park have given stakeholders a head-start in the current effort to set it up, said U.S. Rep. David Cicilline, D-R.I.

“Our park will begin with this very deep and very rich history of relationships,” he said.

Meghan Kish, the National Park Service superintendent who will oversee the park, said the priorities in the planning process include delineating the park’s boundaries and formulating an overall identity for its separate pieces that include sites in Slatersville and Ashton in Rhode Island and Whitinsville and Hopedale in Massachusetts.

Blackstone’s Mulrow Becomes Cuomo’s Top New York Aide

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo appointed as
his top aide William Mulrow, a senior managing director at
Blackstone Group LP, the world’s largest alternative asset

The move comes as Cuomo, a 57-year-old Democrat, embarks on
his second term. It was part of a wider staff shuffle that
included the appointment of Cuomo’s budget director, Robert Megna, as the new director of the New York State Thruway
Authority, operator of the largest U.S. toll road.

“New ideas and talent are critical to innovation and
success,” Cuomo said in a statement e-mailed today that
announced the changes. “This team will build on the
extraordinary progress made over the last four years by bringing
experience, energy and fresh perspectives to the table.”

Mulrow, who was Cuomo’s appointee as the chairman of the
New York State Housing Finance Agency, replaces Larry Schwartz,
who is leaving for the private sector. Cuomo’s closest adviser
through his first term, Schwartz has been questioned by the U.S.
Attorney’s Office in Manhattan over the administration’s
meddling with an anti-corruption panel the governor created in
2013 to probe the legislature.

Still, turnover at the beginning of a new term is typical
of any administration, and Mulrow brings with him decades of
political and government work. He was a senior adviser to the
1990 re-election campaign of three-term Governor Mario Cuomo,
Andrew’s father who died Jan. 1, and was director of the United
Nations Development Corporation, among other posts, according to
Cuomo’s statement. He’ll leave Blackstone, where he was a senior
managing director of the investor relations and business
development group.

Tappan Zee

At the Thruway Authority, Megna will replace Tom Madison,
who resigned last month. The agency is building a $4 billion
replacement for the Tappan Zee Bridge across the Hudson River,
among the nation’s largest infrastructure projects.

As part of building the span, the authority’s debt load may
swell to more than $7 billion, from about $3.7 billion in 2013,
by the time the job is finished in 2018. The agency hasn’t
provided a specific plan to pay for it, according to budget

Last month, the agency approved a $1.7 billion budget with
a deficit of about $25 million and no plan to close it. The gap
is projected to grow to $300 million in 2018, budget documents

Historical park established in Blackstone Valley

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — The Blackstone River Valley is the newest national historical park.

U.S. Sen. Jack Reed has been pushing a plan for a Blackstone River Valley National Historical Park for years. The president signed the Rhode Island Democrat’s legislation establishing the park Friday.

The park is along the Blackstone River and includes significant sites in old mill towns and buildings. The Old Slater Mill in Pawtucket, Rhode Island is the first successful cotton-spinning factory in the United States. Sites in North Smithfield and Cumberland, Rhode Island, and Whitinsville and Hopedale, Massachusetts, are also included.

Reed says the Blackstone Valley is a national treasure that is getting the recognition it deserves.

The area is already home to a national heritage corridor that links communities along the Blackstone River from Worcester, Massachusetts, to Providence.

Lifeboats News Release

  • Date:


  • Author: Barry Perrins

While out walking in the Blackstone rock area of Wembury Bay, a male believed in his late 40’s fell badly and injured himself.

At 1.30 p.m. on 24 August the RNLI’s inshore lifeboat Millennium Forester was launched. After arriving at the scene of the incident, due to his position, it was found that the man was unable to be evacuated by road to hospital.

With  a H.a.r.t. (Hazardous area response team) and coastguard members in attendance, the decision was made to move the casualty to safety by sea using the 7.5 metre Plymouth lifeboat.

At this time on-scene medics had suspected that the casualty may have serious lower limb injuries, and so he was stabilized in a stretcher before being evacuated to Millbay marina and a waiting ambulance.
