Specialty Systems (SpecSys, Inc.) was founded in 1997. Our parent company, Ritalka, is a business holding company based in Montevideo, Minnesota and is 100% owned by Kevin R. Wald. Ritalka provides Human Resources, IT, Finance, Facilities Management, Quality and Safety resources to SpecSys, as well as our sister companies, RVI and Integral dx.
In its infancy the single-employee consulting business primarily supported the design and engineering departments of machinery and equipment manufacturers. With the addition of 3D CAD design/drafting, engineering analysis, and finite element analysis (FEA), SpecSys quickly grew beyond a single consultant, currently employing over 275 people. Today SpecSys offers a full range of engineering and manufacturing services throughout 8 locations to meet each client's specific needs.
While we continue to manufacture single prototypes and limited production runs, we also have taken over the manufacturing of several of our OEM's product lines. To that end, we are an extension of our client's business, providing input into sales and operations planning and forecasting, managing all aspects of purchasing, vendors and inventory, and testing all equipment before it goes out the door in order to deliver quality products with ISO 9001 2015 approved processes in place.
