Reg Riemer of Calgary Alberta, Canada, was born in Saskatoon in 1962. Reg was raised and trained by his father Professor Paul Riemer and his older brother Greg. He started to become very interested in Automobiles, Motorcycles, machines and tools at a very early age. He undertook many projects as a kid, he built motorbikes with his brother and he built and restored his first car, a 1965 Plymouth Barracuda V8,years before he would be old enough to drive it. Soon after finishing his studies in Saskatoon, at College Park Public School, Evan Hardy High School and attending U of S, Reg left Saskatoon in 1983, to move to Calgary Alberta. There he worked at United Chemical Company, UCL a company based out of Saskatoon and with a brand new expansion to Calgary to supply the City of Calgary with Aluminum Sulfate and other industrial chemicals. Reg jumped at the chance to gain experience and work with machines and equipment around the new plant as to help integrate and improve the efficiencies of the control systems via new PLC programed ECU Modbus and Modbus + based systems from Siemens.
A few years later the Calgary plant was purchased by Sherritt Gordon Mines Inc http://www.sherritt.com/English/Company-Profile/History/default.aspx that took over the United Chemical Ltd (UCL). Reg continued to work with the new owner’s operations in Calgary and Fort Saskatchewan. Reg continued to gain invaluable knowledge via courses in Safety Management - Nationwide Safety Management and Consulting company, Loss Control Management at DNV institute, Environmental management - HazMat environmental, Business Operations, QE Quality Control, ISO, Accident Investigation, Loss Management, Public Relations, and Administration.
In his free time when working at Sherritt, Reg continued to work with his own home based modern computer systems and other new technologies, developing his own software/ hardware integrated systems to help with handling problems with dangerous goods packaging and WHIMIS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System (WHMIS)) control. In 1995 Reg sold his system to Sherritt Gordon Mines and other chemical companies. After sixteen years of employment at Sherritt Reg started his own sole proprietor company Riemer Consulting Technical Services, RCTS http://rctscanada.com. His clients were chemical and mining companies including Sherritt Gordon. Business was good over the next few years. In 1997 Reg expanded and incorporated RCTS to become RCTS Canada R&D Inc, still based in Calgary Alberta, Canada. RCTS became a landowner with the purchase of a Commercial property at 526 Cleveland Crescent S.E.
Reg always had an interest in automobiles and this did not stop from the time of restoring his first car. While in the early years working at Sherritt Reg was working on building street cars as well as building a race car for rallying and ice racing in Calgary. Cars of this time were evolving from carburation to Electronic fuel Injection (EFI), Reg found that the control systems and tuning systems were proving inadequate in calculation speed and resolution. Reg found ways to repurpose computers in custom ways to allow the first EFI systems to function properly and be custom tunable. Reg purchased a new Toyota Supra with EFI and started to work with the EFI systems and learned how they were programmed and tuned. He and his team had some considerable success racing it. The backbone of RCTS’s new line of business was being formed. The work with EFI systems and performance tuning became his prime interest and the focus of his company. RCTS moved steadily into automotive performance and away from the chemical and process companies.
Over the years at RCTS Canada R&D Inc, Reg put his experience and innovation skills to work with EFI systems and computers to consult and do contract work with a number of factory race teams and corporations in Europe and USA. Consulting, contracts and sponsorships followed, these include; TTE-Toyota Team Europe-TMG, TRD USA, TMME Toyota Europe, TRD Japan, HKS USA, and HKS Co., Ltd Japan. RCTS now employs six people in automotive performance.
