Rhino Assembly Corporation
Dan Brooks and Leif Anderson started Rhino Assembly Corporation in July 2000 in Charlotte, NC. The company focused on providing technical products such as intelligent assembly tools, torque-measuring equipment, and ergonomic lift assists to assembly plants located throughout the southeastern United States. The first nine years of business provided steady growth for the company, but in 2009, when the economy took a turn for the worse, the company stumbled into a major roadblock and teetered on the brink of disaster. Rhino’s founders did not give up and now, three years later, they are projecting aggressive growth, and plan to extend their sales territories and double their workforce by 2016.
