Our Culture

Our History

Manufacturing Excellence since 1988

RIVA began as one man working nights on a bench in his basement. Thirty years later, we are a vertically integrated manufacturing plant occupying a 37,500 square foot space with over 140 experience employees. The journey in between was full of dedication, innovation, and perseverance: all the same standards we live by today.
