This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

Dina Consulting and Design offers specialized solutions for the railroad industry, from consulting work to pioneering new products, designed and manufactured in house, that all come with a lifetime product design warranty. The innovative line includes battery chargers for passenger locomotives that keep engines running at full capacity. Or the Locomotive Component Design, LCD, a device that monitors locomotive health and notifies the operator if any systems are misfiring.

Owner John Dina grew up working with his dad, John Dina, Sr., an electrical engineer, and discovered his ability to investigate, innovate and find ways to do it better, so it made sense for him to become an electrical engineer. After his father passed away, John took over his business, but too young, he didn’t feel he knew enough, so he closed shop to gain experience. Later, in partnership with his wife Claudia, they opened Dina Consulting and Design, and now 13 years later, this Nampa company is supplying components to locomotives around the world.

These systems are so advanced, you’ll find them as far away as Germany. John travels over 50 percent of the time with the team of 21 independent contractors at Dina Consulting and Design to visit clients on-site and create these solutions, successfully competing with established industry relationships while offering more efficient products.
