RSP, Inc. was founded over 50 years ago as Ryan Screen Printing, Inc. The company was established by brothers Robert and John Ryan in the basement of their parents’ house. Their father, Norbert Ryan, saw the success his young boys were having and joined the business for a number of years, helping the company to expand and to invest in new-and-improved equipment. The first products produced included real estate signs and advertising banners for Schlitz Brewing. Over the years, the company worked with a variety of local manufacturers and businesses including Harley-Davidson, Rockwell Automation, Miller Brewing, Johnson Controls and many more!
In 2005, RSP ownership and operations were passed to the next generation, Mike Ryan and Paul Ryan. This is a business built on family values, integrity and trust. The new owners broadened the company’s offerings to include plastic molding, rubber molding, and electronics. As these new products became a substantial part of the business, the company name was officially changed to RSP, Inc. in 2009 to reflect the variety of offerings while at the same time providing a tie to the company’s history.
Our Commitment to Environmental Sustainability in Manufacturing
RSP is committed to sustainable manufacturing practices that reduce environmental impact. We have policies in place to minimize waste, energy use, and resource consumption.
We have implemented the following best practices:
- Investment in energy-efficient electric plastic molding machines
- Use of flexible manufacturing cells to reduce handling and energy consumption
- Installation of a new filtration system to reduce particulate matter
- Use of returnable packaging pallets and totes when possible
RSP is also leading the way in studying and testing evolving more environmentally sustainable plastic options including:
- Recycled ocean plastic in manufacturing. RSP offers Oceanworks® Guaranteed products utilizing a verified supply chain from oceans, beaches, rivers, and shores.
- Use of organic additives that activate in the presence of specific microbes and enzymes found in landfills to help break down plastic when it reaches its end-of-life destination.
- Blended bioplastics include hemp, rice, and other fibers to meet the demand for sustainable plastics.
RSP works with our clients on sustainability to help them develop the optimal product for their market and needs.
