Thermal Kinetics Announces Grand Opening of its New Innovation and Test Center

Pennsauken, NJ – September 29, 2022 

RCM Technologies, Inc. (NasdaqGM: RCMT), a premier provider of business and technology solutions designed to enhance and maximize the operational performance of its customers through the adaptation and deployment of advanced engineering, specialty health care, and information technology services, today provided an update on Thermal Kinetics, a group within the Process & Industrial business unit of RCM’s Engineering Services division.

RCM Technologies is proud to announce the grand opening of the RCM Thermal Kinetics Innovation Center scheduled for November 2022. The future-friendly Innovation Center is designed to support our clients in maintaining their competitive advantages and to assist them in bringing projects to market more efficiently, with less risk, and an enhanced ability to demonstrate process output results. The Innovation Center will house the state-of-the-art Test Center where customers will be able to witness their feed material being separated in the latest distillation, evaporation, crystallization, and specialty process lab equipment. We expect the Innovation Center to be integral in supporting carbon-reduction and net-zero emission goals for rapidly evolving renewable technologies within the Bioeconomy, Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), Pharmaceutical, Heavy Chemical, Food and Beverage markets, and the ultra-efficient Thermal Kinetics Low Energy Ethanol Process (LEEP).

“Increasing demand has continually tested the engineering capacity of the RCM Thermal Kinetics organization,” according to David Loschiavo, General Manager of RCM Thermal Kinetics. “To meet our customer needs, we have doubled our workforce over the past twelve months. The other customer need that is addressed in the move to the new Innovation Center is the addition of a stateof-the-art testing facility. Many new ‘green technologies’ benefit from the availability of pilot testing to confirm process development, de-risk project investment, and improve speed to market.”

Since 1999, Thermal Kinetics has been providing full-service process equipment supply, engineering, development, and design services. RCM Thermal Kinetics offers advanced energysaving solutions, patented technological integration, and sophisticated process plant development – proudly matching each of their customers’ specific needs with optimal productivity and profitability.

RCM completed the acquisition of Thermal Kinetics in November 2018. “Since the 2018 acquisition, RCM Thermal Kinetics has experienced a continual increase in its volume of business. Growth has been realized in traditional sustainable fuel and chemical markets along with emerging markets, many of which are leveraging innovative technologies for environmental sustainability and net zero emissions,” explains RCM Process & Industrial Senior Vice President Rick Boyd. “It is extremely exciting to watch this culture-driven organization evolve into an enhanced state capable to accelerate proof of concept and ultimately large-scale implementation of world changing technologies.”
