RICO's Manufacturing Capabilities

Control cost, reduce lead time & get rapid ROI – all because of our in-house production

RICO is proud to be one of the most self-sufficient Specialized Material Handling Equipment companies in the industry.  With 98% of all work done in-house, we eliminate dependency on outside sources.

As lift truck specialists, we design, fabricate and assemble our own equipment. This includes everything from engineering, steel plate burning, and CNC machining to welding, paint, final assembly and testing. This level of control means RICO customers reap the rewards. You control costs and guarantee quality when RICO uses our own in-house work force, our own equipment and technology, our own facility and our own in-house testing.

RICO stands out in the industry -- as a partner capable of providing all you need.
