R&B Wire Products Names Grant Rawlins President

Becomes third generation of family to lead company

SANTA ANA, Calif. — R&B Wire Products, a manufacturer of industrial material-handling products, including commercial laundry carts, has promoted Grant Rawlins to president, the company reports.

Rawlins, the third generation in his family to lead the business, has been with R&B Wire since graduating from Pepperdine University in 2016.

During his time at the company, Rawlins has held various leadership positions to learn all aspects of the business. Most recently, he led an 18-month process of evaluating, testing and implementing a new ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system to modernize and streamline the operational aspects of the business.

“Grant is an exceptional leader who has developed a deep understanding of our business, from the day-to-day operations to the long-term goals and overall strategy,” says CEO Rick Rawlins, Grant’s father.

“I am honored and excited to take on this new role as president,” says Grant Rawlins. “What motivates me every day is my responsibility to continuously improve all aspects of our business — from our team and culture to our products, infrastructure and processes. This is all made possible with our team’s dedication and hard work.”

His grandfather, Rea Rawlins, purchased the company in the mid-1960s. Rick Rawlins joined R&B Wire in the mid-1970s.
