Rich Hantus has worked side by side with the Chief since July of 1985, “turning a bit of scratches on notepaper into functioning instruments.” The masterful precision line-up of every hardware component of all Olis products started with Rich at the CAD program and extends to the electronics and the machine shop. He left for a brief period and worked for Douglas Machines during which he remained employed by Olis as a subcontractor. He returned to Olis full time on December 1, 1997.

Rich’s favorite saying is, “If you enjoy what you do, you will never work a day in your life”

Rich is married and he and his wife Katrina have two children, April and Matthew and two grandchildren, James and Michael. He has a wide range of musical interests, depending on his mood and audience. He enjoys riding motorcycles. He is very proud of his humming bird feeders and his 50+ gallon fish tank. He spends a lot of time in his shop at home equipped for wood working and electrical working.
