Rice Engineering & Operating Ltd. has been providing products and expertise to a wide range of Canadian industries. The beginning of Alberta’s oil boom in the late 1940s resulted in the creation of countless service industries – both up-stream and down-stream of the well-head. Rice has been one of those companies, almost from the start. Established in 1952, one of its first operations was to design, build and operate one of the first oilfield-produced water disposal systems in western Canada. It has continued operating that service for more than 50 years.

From its inception, Rice has been an employee-owned corporation, and our employees have benefited as the company has grown to its present national scope of operations.

Throughout our 50+ years, we have maintained our tradition of continuing to explore new territory. Our in-house research and development staff have had a focus on discovery, which has added value to the products we supply to industry through our custom manufacturing capabilities.

Coupled with our rapid response rate to client requests and orders, the focus on added value research has led to the company being recognized as a leader in supplying the specialized product needs of customers in a diverse range of industries.

Reflecting our corporate growth, Rice Engineering & Operating Ltd. commissioned the design and development of a new head office and warehouse. In 1999 this move dramatically streamlined the operations and provided staff with a light, airy and productive atmosphere in which to work.

Our corporate mission is to be the supplier of choice for specialty products and services in specific market sectors. We will provide our customers with value through timely access to a comprehensive range of competitively priced, products and services. Our mission is achieved with a high regard for our long term relationships with our customers and vendors and for the job satisfaction and care of our employees.

Experience leads to specialization. To improve our service to specific markets, Rice Engineering & Operating Ltd. has created six corporate divisions. Each division specifically addresses the product and service needs of our client industries, while maintaining internal communications to ensure effective client relations and service.

Throughout our more than 50 years of existence, the company has been driven by a commitment to two basic principles – trust and service. Rice's growth and competitiveness are the direct result of maintaining and continually reworking those important values.

Trust
One way in which this is shown is in how we strive to maintain cost competitiveness to meet our customers' bottom line, knowing that ensuring the integrity of the projects we work on will secure our bottom line. Whether, it's a small-scale replenishment of bailers or supporting a new exploration program, our focus remains on meeting the customers' needs.

To us, trust is a matter of pride -- and the foundation of many of Rice's long-term customer relationships.

Service
Time may very well be money, but we consider every minute spent servicing an order to be an investment. From order support to shipping, follow-up to servicing – we believe that a sale goes well beyond a simple money for product exchange.

We believe our reputation has been built on service and our customers have come to depend on it. Both as a company and among individual staff members, we are dedicated to maintaining our proud service reputation at the highest possible level.
