about us.

a firm founded on integrity and leadership.

RPA Engineering began in 1989 with an exciting vision and launched its growth with the help of its first engineer, Marian K.  Over 30 years later we are more than 80 strong with six offices. Strategically located along the eastern corridor of the United States, our Corporate Headquarters in Wyomissing, Pennsylvania is in close proximity to Philadelphia, New York City, and Washington D.C.

core values.

Our core values are a guiding influence in all we do.

  • Integrity – We hold ourselves to a high standard of not only doing things right but doing the right things.
  • Innovation – In the realm of a highly structured engineering industry, we encourage a spirit of creativity to deliver the best results for our clients.
  • Quality – Delivering the highest quality work is never a question – it’s what we do!
  • Fun – Life is too short not to enjoy every moment. We strive to make our work life fun, not take ourselves too seriously and laugh along the way.

the RPA difference.

It’s not enough to simply understand the pressures you are under. Empathy takes you only so far.

The engineering firm you choose today must walk with you, perhaps even a little bit ahead, to help you overcome challenges like creating sustainable designs, reducing higher energy costs, and improving efficiency.

Having the right skills is a given.

But finding solutions that go beyond the mere engineering problems to actually become a strategic business weapon – well, that´s an engineering firm that you want to do business with again and again.

that’s leadership by design.

That’s RPA Engineering.


Richard P. Aulenbach, P.E., MBA

After years of working in a major consulting engineering firm, I had a vision of creating a people-oriented, technically sophisticated niche firm.

As a result, 30+ years later we serve some of the world’s top organizations and continue to maintain strong and enjoyable engagements.
