August 1, 1966
Rapa Electric Inc. a proprietorship begun by Robert J. Rapa, in Allegan, Michigan. Then known as "Robert J. Rapa Electric Company" serviced and supplied the industrial electric motor industry of the West Michigan area.
The business changed from a proprietorship to a corporation, and was renamed "Rapa Electric Incorporated".
Robert J. Rapa retired, leaving some of Robert's children to run the business. Now owned and operated by Robert's son, Ron Rapa.
The motor shop suffered a drastic fire which destroyed almost everything. With this devastating challenge, Rapa Electric was able to continue operating out of three separate facilities. During this time, a new shop was under construction.
