Incorporated in 1965 and still operating, Rush and Parker, Inc. was primarily involved in the crane and crane attachment industry. This included the rental, sale, and repair of clamshell buckets, dragline buckets, rock grapples, cranes, and crane parts. As the use of dragline buckets and similar attachments declined in the late 80’s and early 90’s, the company was looking for new markets. Bernard C. Delargey joined the team in 1995 and brought pile driving knowledge with him. He built up the company inventory, became a partner in 1999, and acquired complete ownership in 2006. In the same year, Kristin Bauer (then Kristin Delargey) joined the team. Ryan Delargey joined shortly after in 2008. The new team formed RPI Construction Equipment in 2012. Devin Sheehan (formerly Delargey) joined the team in 2020. Since its formation, RPI Construction Equipment has strengthened its relationships with its manufacturers and customers. The equipment fleet and team of technicians continues to grow and expansion is forthcoming.
