Owner and Founder
Ronald Manganello worked for 16 years with Factory Mutual. After working in their non-destructive examination services division, Ron branched out on his own and formed Carlesa NDE Services. He travels all over the United States, Canada, and South America and is spreading out further around the globe. Always willing to get his hands dirty, Ron says "I always like meeting new machines!". In his spare time, of which there is little, Ron enjoys fishing and masonry work - often collection beautiful stones from the areas around the places he works. The best way to reach Ron would be by leaving a voice mail on his phone or dropping him a detailed e-mail. Given that he is on the road 90% of the time, you may have to wait to hear back from him until he has access to a calendar or his computer back at whatever hotel room he is in for the night.
