“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." -Calvin Coolidge

After a 12 year-old Ryan visited the Corvette factory in Bowling Green, Kentucky, he knew he wanted to part of how America makes things. With continued interest in the art and science of manufacturing, Ryan pursued his Bachelors in International Business at Calvin College. After graduating, he realized his dream of working with manufacturing by holding client relations positions throughout the manufacturing industry. At Malisko, Ryan enjoys bringing together the right people for the right job to tackle complex projects, and helping to bring the total solution to the client's plant floor.

Personal Passion
He likes spending time with his family and helping his children to blaze their own trail.

Dream Job
Build houses for Habitat for Humanity

Interesting Fact
He secretly likes the handy-man "fix-it" list his wife gives him every weekend. (Shhh! don't tell her that though!)

CSU BREWERY

Brewing…On a College Campus?

In April 2018, Colorado State University (CSU), with support from both the university and industry companies like Malisko, opened a new hands-on brewing lab and industry showcase that will give students practical experience for careers in the brewing and fermentation industries. The lab is part of CSU’s state-of-the-art Fermentation Science and Technology (FST) program.

Automated brewing processes and precise control technologies to maintain product consistency and quality, while satisfying the discerning palates of the consumer base is nothing new to large multi-national and regional breweries. Today, smaller craft brewers are increasingly investing in these technologies for the same reason. Check out this video created by Colorado State University, featuring Malisko’s Dan Malyszko, that highlights the collaboration between industry and education to bring this state of the art brewery to campus.

A Major Donor to the Project

We have learned over the years that giving back to the community is a great source of inspiration and motivation for our team members. By combining our spirit of volunteerism, specialized skills, and economic resources, we knew we could be an asset to CSU students to set up the automation “brains” of the Lory Student Center and Gifford breweries. The students’ work is all part of a senior design project called “Brewery Design and Automation” sponsored by Malisko Engineering.

Dan Malyszko at Ramskeller Brewery “I recalled my own senior design project at CSU and thought, ‘How cool would it be to involve some of these engineering students in such a unique application?’ I wish I’d had exposure to industrial manufacturing design in college, but now being part of providing the platform and coaching the students is very rewarding.”
