Poorly DesignedControl Panels Suck.
We are on a mission to rethink control panels to make them easy to install, commission, and service.
Who We Are
We are mechanical and electrical engineers tired of poorly engineered equipment and strive to ease the stress of field techs by designing control systems that are simple to understand, easy to commission, install, and especially easy to service. Good design enables efficient business.
What We Do
Through our efforts, we recognize how poorly designed equipment hinders progress in a messy spaghetti-like web of electrical wiring. In addition, we're committed to understanding what field technicians want and need as they battle all kinds of weather conditions with varying levels of experience.
Why We Do it
We build a better box with all users in mind, cascading efficiencies down the line. Users matter. Field techs wear gloves and work in all weather conditions, with various skills from newbies to old pros, and they are all tired of poorly designed, messy control panels.
Engineers are people who can turn a beer & a napkin sketch into next-generation products that solve real problems.
We created RNB Controls to change how control panels are designed and manufactured.
RNB Controls, Inc., was founded 15 years ago by 3 guys that have now put in over 30 years in the controls and automation industry. We have had darn near every role you can have. From Controls Engineers to Sales Executives to Project Manager to Purchasing Mgr to Distributor Rep and Manufacturers Rep. We truly understand our industry's underpinnings. The vertical markets and the personalities that make up all of those creatively cool independent markets. We learned how to speak their language by working in the trenches, sitting on the homer buckets, and not being able to go home until that machine worked properly.
We’ve seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. We know which hardware to keep, which to stay away from, and why. We follow the wisdom that comes from decades of experience with every kind of customer under the sun.
“To us, the control panel is a work of art that must be perfectly made to the specifications, test out fast, be clean, and ready for prime time.
– Lee Riemenschneider, President at RNB Control Panels
To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.
We’re Doubling Our Capacity
Helping more customers.
