“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!)



At the conclusion of our Front End Engineering Design, we put a proposal in your hands complete with a comprehensive plan for your project. This includes addressing the full costs of automation, calculating sensible timelines, and providing realistic schedules for implementation.

We assure you that our sights are set on achieving your business goals. We work around your production schedule. We finish projects on time and within the agreed-upon budget. And we make sure our work pays off for you.


Business Objectives Efficiency and consistency: two attributes Malisko knows best. Every automation solution we implement on your plant floor is designed to improve one or both. And we have countless ways to do it, whether it’s a simple control scheme using a touchscreen panel or an upgrade from a legacy Distributed Control System (DCS) to a greenfield PlantPAx solution. All of our automation solutions aim to improve your plant’s process efficiency and batch consistency to save you time, money and labor.


We’re proud of our record, and we’re more than happy to put you in touch with a long list of references. They will tell you we complete projects on time and budget.

So how do we do it?

In addition to setting realistic expectations at the onset of a project, we reduce risks as we implement your system. By performing our FEED, we identify potential project risks and make plans to hedge against them.


You’re still asking one big question, “How much will this cost me?” In automation, every project is different. But trust us to throw it all out there. Our budgets include a worst-case estimate to eliminate surprises when we get into the detailed design phase. We show you what it costs to automate. And we’ll help calculate your ROI along with the cost so you can see exactly what automation will save you and the benefits you’ll gain in the long run.

If your budget allows you to fully invest in your facility, we’ll implement the full range of solutions that we present to you. If you have to pick and choose a few operations to automate, we’re there with you. And we work directly with your plant’s team, almost becoming part of your company, to identify the solutions that deliver the biggest and most immediate ROI.


In our more than 20 years of helping manufacturers, we’ve intelligently applied automation for hundreds of companies across a wide range of industries. And we’ve earned repeat business from 90 percent of our clients.

Have a question or do you want more output, fewer lost batches and better reports? We can show you how to improve your production and maximize your successes through industrial automation.
