Randy Hanson, Senior Vice President of Research and Development, 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 Coatings by initially servicing military contracts.
