A Powys based machinery manufacturer has secured a series of US deals that are forecast to bring in up to £10 million over the next five years.

After opening its first American outpost in Delaware, Newtown based manufacturer RM Group has secured a string of deals in the USA with the support of the Welsh Government.

The company opened its Delaware office in 2022, in response to an increase in enquiries from the US, and picked up a number of deals in several states such as Illinois, Arkansas and Utah.

The company also recently signed a deal with a US automation company, which now orders RM Group equipment under its own branding and sells to clients across the Utah belt in a deal that is forecast to be worth up to £10 million over the next five years.


Founded over 20 years ago as a small packaging business, today Rm Group designs and builds both manual and automated machinery used to process and package items such as food and drink, construction, energy, utilities and general industry.

The company exports its products to over 15 different territories from its factory in Wales.

As well as trade in the US, several RM Group representatives have recently taken a visit to Australia, supported by an Overseas Business Development Visit grant from the Welsh Government, to attend exhibitions and meet with several new potential contractors.

Jeremy Miles, Cabinet Secretary for Economy, Energy and Welsh Language, added: “The export success of RM Group is a fantastic example of how exporting can support company growth.

“I am extremely pleased that Welsh Government support, delivered as part of our Export Action Plan, has contributed to their success in global markets”
