Rich Boziwick

Rich Boziwick is President of R. P. Luce & Company, a supplier of reusable shipping containers and cases used in the military, government and broadcast industries. Rich graduated as a BSME in 1973 and initially worked as a Construction Engineer for the M. W. Kellogg Company and was stationed at the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Station in Avila Beach, CA. It was in the early 80’s that with the nuclear power market dwindling, Rich moved into the family business, R P Luce & Company. The company was founded in 1953 and his father, George (Clarkson ’48), became a partner in 1955. Rich started as a Sales Engineer in 1982 and at that time, his family bought out the Luce family. The name was retained due to name recognition over almost 30 years. In 1990, Rich’s father went into semi-retirement and Rich was made President and has been in this position ever since.

P. Luce Organization. We thank Rich for his significant efforts and time in helping the fraternity in recent years. Please feel free to drop Rich a note at rich_boziwick@rpluce.com.
