For a brand-new company, Rio Controls & Hydraulics is moving aggressively to make its mark on the inland waterways. Formed only last year, it has developed a patent-pending steering and propulision-control system for towboats that operates on totally new principles, promising to deliver significant increases in longevity and to save time in calibrating steering. It also develops and markets alarm and propulsion-control systems.
