Contract Manufacturer

A History of Commitment, A Focus on Solutions

RiverSide Integrated Solutions has its roots in the Midwest. With nearly 40 years in the Winona county, Minnesota area, RiverSide has become synonymous with quality and integrity RiverSide’s history goes back to 1984, when three visionary engineers began contract manufacturing electromechanical assemblies in a partner’s garage in Winona, Minnesota. Given their location near the Mississippi River, they called it RiverSide Electronics, Ltd., and the “RiverSide” name was born.

In 1988, the company relocated equipment and over 200 employees to Lewiston, Minnesota, and RiverSide Electronics was recognized by Business Week magazine as one of the 25 fastest-growing high-tech companies in the United States. In 1989, RiverSide opened a second manufacturing facility in Rushford, Minnesota.

With an increase in customer base, packaging requests, kitting and distribution offered new challenges and opportunities. In 1995, one of RiverSide Electronics, Ltd.’s founders, Stephen Craney, created RiverStar Inc. to provide contract packaging, kitting, testing, repair and distribution services for OEM companies. And in 2007, Stephen Craney and Rodney Allen recognized another customer need – low-volume electronic manufacturing. Customer requests for material risk management and unique customized solutions led to the creation of RiverBend Electronics, Ltd.

As of 2020, RiverSide Electronics, RiverStar and RiverBend Electronics began operating under a single name and brand: RiverSide Integrated Solutions, Inc. By incorporating the capabilities of the three companies into one, RiverSide Integrated Solutions, Inc. is an advanced contract manufacturing company providing a broad range of robust total-package solutions for mid-sized original equipment manufacturers (OEMs). Continuing the RiverSide customer-focused approach to manufacturing, RiverSide Integrated Solutions provides full-service offerings in Supply Chain Management, Circuit Board Assembly, Electromechanical & Mechanical Assembly, Kitting, Fulfillment, Distribution, and Reverse Logistics.

Today, RiverSide Integrated Solutions is a financially robust, advanced contract manufacturing company that employs more than 350 people and services OEMs worldwide.
