Like many entrepreneurs, Dave Rohner built his company by trying to fill a need he saw in the industry and then going after opportunities as they came his way. What has kept the finishing systems operation strong is that Rohner understands every aspect of the business, and the company uses that knowledge to enhance customers’ productivity and profitability.
“Before I started the company, I had been in the industry for about five to six years, doing some part-time projects on the weekends and evenings during my college years that lead to a full-time career opportunity,” Rohner says. “I branched out on my own in 1999 when I launched Rohner Mechanical Inc., DBA Rohner, because I saw a need for quality installation services of finishing systems and knew it was an inroad into manufacturing our own product. A few years later, we started manufacturing our own equipment in-house, but we still have a presence in installation. We are licensed as a general contractor in several states, installing our own equipment and others’.”
