About Rhino

History

Rhino Manufacturing Group was founded in 2004 as a family business by sisters Heather Mordhorst and Aimee Gaede.  Inspired by their father, they combined their diverse backgrounds to start a new, unique combination of skills.  This would eventually lead them to supplying the best construction jobsite washout pans available on the market today

First, they decided their top priority is the COMPLETE need of their customers to ensure long-term successful business relationships.  Next, the Rhino group committed to their core values: quality, innovation, price competitiveness, quick product turnaround and lean manufacturing.

At the beginning, Rhino’s earliest products focused mostly on the Lawn & Garden industry.  Since then, their production base has expanded to multiple industries, now with a focus on jobsite washout.  Today, their products are still designed and tested with their customers’ needs prioritized.  Combining this with the best customer service available, Rhino fills a unique void in the market.  

Rhino’s operations continue to expand to provide our customers with the products they need for growth and success.  Contact us to discuss how we can best serve you!
