In 1994, Bob Rimol, owner of Rimol Greenhouse Systems, decided to leave his home state of New Jersey and relocate to New Hampshire with his family. Soon after, Bob began working as a sales representative for a greenhouse manufacturer specializing in structures and systems. It didn’t take long for Bob to realize there was a lack of innovative and quality greenhouse technology options for local growers. And so Bob founded Rimol Greenhouse Systems in order to fill that gap.
Bob contacted Mike Marett, a fellow UVM graduate, and combined their expertise in horticulture and engineering with a mutual entrepreneurial spirit to construct the first RGS Greenhouses. The goal for the first two greenhouses was simple: utilize the best features of pre-existing greenhouses and offer a low-cost, high-quality greenhouse alternative. Soon after, the Northpoint was developed as a dynamic multi-functional growing and retail house, and the Catamount was developed as a growing and “over-wintering” house. Both greenhouses were designed to endure heavy snow and wind loads in order to withstand the rugged New England climate.
Rimol Greenhouse Systems now offers over 10 unique free-standing greenhouses. From the gutter-connected Matterhorn to the Rolling Thunder - one of the first mobile commercial greenhouses - RGS continues to set the market standard for innovation, durability, and cost-effectiveness. And today, Rimol produces additional products such as shade structures, benches, and an entire line of products to complement their industry-leading growing structures.
Fast forward two decades and RGS has an industry-respected brand name synonymous with quality and unrivaled durability. While the company has added six new full-time employees, donated dozens of structures to non-profits, universities, and research facilities, constructed a new 32,000 square foot production facility, has a robust Facebook following of over 120,000 greenhouse enthusiasts, and expanded into markets spanning North America, Rimol Greenhouse Systems continues to focus on meeting the individual needs of every customer.
