Trusted Solutions For Over 32 Years
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.
Today, RIE is aggressively planning and implementing expansion throughout the US through dedicated satellite facilities to plans for further stand alone facilities. RIE has also implemented overseas proprietary operations. RIE is solving the worlds corrosion problems one step at a time through the use of high-tech coatings.
RIE’s Dubuque Iowa facility is now certified to operate a Quality Management System which complies with the requirements of ISO9001-2015 for corrosion protection coatings onto metallic components.
