About RIE

Utilizing state-of-the-art technology and a wealth of experience, RIE is a proven leader in developing coating solutions that provide chemical and corrosion protection, abrasion resistance, heat dissipation and dry film lubrication for a wide variety of applications. Most importantly, each step of the coating process is completed in-house – we do not send your parts out for any portion of the process, allowing us to deliver high-quality solutions to your exact specifications.

ISO 9001:2015

RIE is certified to ISO 9001:2015, proving their commitment to offering a management system that is equally as great as the coatings they are applying.

Trusted Solutions For decades

Randy Hanson, Senior Vice President of Engineering, began his career in the coating business in the US Air Force corrosion control division. He later worked in the aerospace industry where he gained knowledge of corrosion resistant and other high tech coatings. In 1987, Mr. Hanson founded RIE by initially servicing military contracts. The company quickly evolved as RIE began helping large, non-automotive companies implement the use of coatings to greatly enhance the products they are manufacturing.

A global industry leader

From its humble beginning RIE has grown into an industry leader in North America as well as having a presence in overseas markets. RIE has provided the impetus and expertise to large companies who have seen the need to move from traditional zinc plating or galvanizing to thin film protective coatings. We have helped companies in a wide range of industries like agricultural equipment, recreational vehicles, military, computer, electronics, construction, medical, aerospace, and others improve the performance of their products through the use of coatings.

Looking Forward

In order to continue our tradition of innovation in the coating industry, RIE is always looking to the future. Through planning dedicated satellite and stand alone facilities, interest in strategic acquisitions, implementing overseas proprietary operations, and a commitment to the development of new technologies, RIE will continue to expand throughout the US and the world.
We are solving the worlds corrosion problems one step at a time through the use of high-tech coatings.
