Reliable Management Solutions Announces Supply Chain Partnership with Local Innovators and Entrepreneurs in Reno, NV
Reliable Management Solutions (RMS), a leading provider of customized logistics solutions, announced their partnership this week with Clickbio, Gripbell, Hinge Hanger Plus, and Peep No More at their Distribution Center in Reno, NV.
What do Clickbio, Gripbell, Hinge Hanger Plus, and Peep No More have in common? These recently founded companies are contributing to our city’s fast growing entrepreneurial scene. These companies also share a challenge, one that is common amongst product-based startups: creating and managing an effective supply chain.
“As Reno’s entrepreneurial ecosystem continues to thrive, we are seeing more and more product based companies. As an entrepreneur myself, I want to influence the course and success of these local startups,” said Dong Min, RMS’ CFO and an active volunteer mentor in the Summit Venture Mentoring Service (VMS) program. “While working with companies in Summit VMS, it became apparent that product-based startups were consistently encountering challenges in regards to their supply chain. There are few third-party logistics companies that are willing to educate and take on startups as a client.”
Enter Reliable Management Solutions (RMS). Though founded in 2004, RMS opened their first full service warehouse in Reno, NV in March of this year. “We are expanding not only the types of distribution and logistics services that we provide, but also the industries and the organizations that we support through those services, due to an increase in the number of businesses looking to outsource their warehousing and distribution services in Northern Nevada,” said Ryan Peirce, Managing Member of RMS. “As a locally founded company ourselves, we are thrilled to be partnering with local entrepreneurs.”
RMS will provide all standard warehousing services, including receiving, storage, order fulfillment, consolidation, and many other value added services. The distribution center location, which is in south Reno, was strategically selected based on its convenient location near major roadways.
Clickbio was founded in 2014 by laboratory automation industry veterans Craig Vincze, Ph.D., and physicist Mykle Gaynor in the emerging global tech center of Reno, Nevada. Through their years of customer contact in the laboratory automation industry, Craig and Mykle came to realize that the scientific research community had many needs that weren’t being fulfilled by off-the-shelf labware. Together, they set out to reimagine the lab plasticware market with an eye toward creating smarter labware by design, and delivering it with speed, simplicity, and convenience.
