Hass joins Deimco after graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree in Agricultural Studies from Iowa State University in May of 2020. During his time at Iowa State, Ryan possessed roles including fabrication, mechanical and electrical duties at B&G HVAC, Van Wall Equipment and Reisetter Electric. As senior technician, Hass will be responsible for the design and implementation of the electrical, mechanical, pneumatic and hydraulic controls of Deimco’s automated systems.

“We’re excited to add such high-character people and high-caliber talent to our team,” says Tom Arneson, vice president and general manger. “We believe this is the correct time — and Shivtej and Ryan are the correct people — to make these notable investments.”

Deimco’s new expansion will allow the company to pre-assemble and test operate multiple systems concurrently on its floor. This ensures customers have the opportunity to confirm the equipment they purchase will meet their requirements. The addition is underway and is scheduled for completion in the early second quarter of 2021.
