Rice’s business model IS A SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS MODEL
From oils & lubricants and reliability services to industrial vac services and waste disposal & recycling services (and OSHA training services, too). Working with Rice you’ll have fewer vendors, PO’s and invoices. And less interruptions.
Beyond ease-of-use, Rice operates on a performance-driven business model. A model that supports our customers’ efforts to increase productivity, profitability and sustainability.
For Rice and its customers, sustainability is the key. We do this with a circular-economy market approach. In simplest terms, we partner with customers to help them operate more sustainably by minimizing waste and making the most of their resources. This includes selling customers less lubricants by making them last longer. (Product-Life Extension through reliability services and specialized industrial services)
Are you getting low on specialty products like synthetic compressor oil, synthetic extreme pressure gear oil, way lubricant, turbine oil, ultra-clean spindle oil and synthetic grease? You can get them all from Rice, as well as bulk glycols (EG & inhibited or uninhibited PG).
Everything Rice does for customers is through the lens of helping them operate more sustainably - and deliver both good economic results and good environmental outcomes. Sustainability consulting, training and auditing services
