Rock Industries Corporation (RIC), a tribally-owned SBA 8(a) company, is a division of the Standing Rock Development Corporation. RIC is located in Fort Yates, North Dakota, the tribal headquarters of the Standing Sioux Tribe. RIC has partnered with Alion (Alion) Science and Technology to develop a 'stationary' Mobile Parts Hospital program for the U.S. Defense Department. So far, Rock Industries Corporation has delivered on multiple projects for the Army and is striving at to become dependable supplier for the Defense Department.
Each RIC project is unique and utilizes rapid processing technologies that demand quick turnaround. Our initial projects ranged in complexity from boxes that house the dummy landing gear for helicopters, while they are being serviced, to wood sills used during the mast assembly for PATRIOT missiles, to fabricating heat treating racks and baskets. In a rather short time we have developed multiple skills and capacities in our evolution to becoming a highly reliable, quick responding machine shop.
With the success of the Alion partnership, Rock Industries Corporation is already looking to future expansion. Our plans are to become a world-class machine production shop serving both government and commercial customers.
