Ryan Rice joined the Alba team as a Mechanical Project Engineer in the fall of 2020.

With a B.S. from the University of Cincinnati, Ryan did Co-ops at Clarke Power Generation designing and manufacturing diesel engine generators; General Tool Company manufacturing naval and aerospace components; and Loft LLC designing medical devices and consumer products.

His current responsibilities at Alba Manufacturing consist of designing custom pallet conveying systems, creating manufacturing documentation, and supporting machinery from manufacturing through assembly.

He enjoys being able to see the projects that he works on come to life. Watching the manufacturing process unfold and seeing the machines he designs take shape.

His most memorable moment at Alba would be the time he misspelled “shift” on a drawing and received an amusing phone call from the customer.

When he is not working Ryan enjoys carpentry/woodworking, running, reading, photography, and backpacking. He also has a German Short-haired Pointer/Lab mix named Goose.

Ryan grew up in Van Wert, Ohio and moved to Cincinnati for college and decided to stick around.
