About Us

Ron-Vik specializes in the design and manufacture of products which combine wire or synthetic mesh with thermo-plastics or plastisols. The products include in-line strainers, filter washers, suction line strainers and a wide variety of custom components, most of which provide protection to our customers' equipment and components.

Ron-Vik was founded in 1948 by Merle Vikre to solve a problem – clogged lawn sprinkler heads. The company's first product combined mesh and plastic to create the filter washer, a product still in widespread use today. This innovative approach is still evident in the wide range of mesh with plastic products we have designed and manufactured since our founding. We have assembled a unique combination of processes and a staff of skilled and experienced engineers and tool-makers. We have also developed and built proprietary equipment to increase the efficiency of manufacture. This allows us to define, design and implement creative, cost-effective solutions.

At Ron-Vik quality is more than a concept. It is integrated into our strategic plan and evidenced by our ISO 9001 certification since 1997. It is also reflected in our customers' satisfaction with both the quality of our products and the quality of our interactions. We are committed to continuous improvement. Our goal is to meet and exceed our customers' expectations.

Ron-Vik is a domestic manufacturer. We are located in a company owned 50,000 + square foot facility in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Our location allows us to be more responsive to our customers. Our proprietary processes and expertise allow us to be a competitive domestic supplier.

Ron-Vik values customer relationships and we have many which span 20 or more years. We believe that a long term relationship allows us to better understand and respond to your needs. We know that being relationship oriented and competitive are not mutually exclusive.
