History of the Rimrock Name
In 1956, Rimrock was founded by Franz Stone as a supplier of spray equipment to foundries, rubber molders, and extruders. The name “Rimrock” was adopted as a tribute to Franz’s grandfather who was nicknamed “Rimrock” due to his love of geology and the Grand Canyon. The name is also a play on words honoring the founding family’s last name of Stone.
Lincoln Electric Automation’s vision for superior customer service and a rugged product line has led the company to become an automation leader in the die casting, foundry, and forging industries. Our ladles, reciprocators, and extractors have given accuracy, consistency, and efficiency to our customers’ process while providing a safe working environment. We have also expanded our expertise by forming a strategic alliance with key suppliers such as FANUC®, ABB®, and Fill® Gesellschaft M.B.H. to offer complete automated production systems.
