Contract Manufacturer

A History of Commitment, A Focus on Solutions

In 1984, three visionary engineers founded RiverSide Electronics, Ltd. and began contract manufacturing of electromechanical assemblies in a partner’s garage in Winona, Minnesota. Located near the Mississippi River, the “RiverSide” name was born. Having experienced substantial growth, the business was moved to a nearby facility and in 1988, relocated equipment and over 200 employees to Lewiston, Minnesota.  RiverSide Electronics was soon recognized by Business Week magazine as one of the 25 fastest growing high tech companies in the United States. In 1989, a second manufacturing facility opened in Rushford, Minnesota.

With an increase in customer base, requests for packaging, kitting, and distribution offered new challenges and opportunities. In 1995, one of RiverSide Electronics, Ltd. Founders, Stephen Craney, created RiverStar Inc. to focus on providing contract packaging, kitting, testing, repair, and distribution services for OEM companies.

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, Ltd., RiverStar Inc., and RiverBend Electronics, Ltd. 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 a uniquely positioned, advanced contract manufacturing company providing a broad range of robust comprehensive solutions. While staying customer focused, RiverSide Integrated Solutions provides offerings in Supply Chain Management, Circuit Board Assembly, Electromechanical & Mechanical Assembly, Kitting, Fulfillment, Distribution, and Reverse Logistics.

Today, RiverSide Integrated Solutions is a financially strong, advanced contract manufacturing company that employs more than 300 people and services OEM’s across the world.
