We are a contract manufacturer serving the specialty materials space. Our purpose is to acquire, create, and build businesses that facilitate the commercialization of new transformative materials. We exist to enable speed-to-market and reduce scale up risk. Rice partners with specialty material producers and end customers, providing R&D, scale-up, and commercial services and products.

Growth of advanced materials requires the swift development of niche, customized applications. Many producers lack the flexible business models and operations to service the rapidly developing end markets in specialty materials. We are the bridge between product R&D, and end market development.
