Royce C. Rasumussen has always wanted to be better. Growing up in rural Utah he remembers being told that he would not amount to much and that the sooner he “learned his place” the better off he would be. Royce was 12 years old at the time and this became a motivator for him to be better than expected. Over the years he has worked at several jobs but he was primarily a truck driver. At the end of a long tiring day, Royce commented to his wife that he did not have time to clean his semi truck. His wife Julie suggested that he start a mobile truck wash service like he had talked about doing. At the time they had 6 children. After convincing his parents to loan him $4,000 so he could purchase the equipment, Royce & Son’s was born and his mobile truck wash started. Based out of his home, and employing only himself and two of his sons Calvin & Casey, Royce’s initial focus was on the mobile truck cleaning business. By recognizing the need for a company that was well versed in all aspects of the cleaning industry, the business quickly grew. His vision was to build a company dedicated to becoming a leader in the field of industrial cleaning. With a strong work ethic, and the help and support of his family, he began the journey to realize his dream.
Although many years have passed since washing that first truck, the one thing that has not changed is Royce’s intense desire to be better. Royce will tell you he is just a simple guy from rural Utah that worked hard and got lucky. His employees and friends will tell you that Royce is one of the most honest, hard working people they know. His ability to surround himself with the right people, train them and then have the insight to direct them has lead to the company’s tremendous success. He deflects credit for much of the success but his leadership, innovation and persistence has grown the company to be the largest pressure washer distributor in the United States and one of the largest in the world.
Today, Royce Industries is a recognized leader in the field of industrial cleaning equipment, car wash equipment and railroad/railcar services in the Intermountain area.
