From Engineering to Entrepreneurship: Exclusive with COO of ARY Engineering Arthur Baranovskiy

Arthur Baranovskiy is an ambitious leader, problem-solver, and a man on a mission to help others tap into their entrepreneurial spirit and grow to their fullest potential.

Baranovskiy was introduced to drafting and design at the age of 13, which blossomed into his passion for engineering and led to his enrollment into Delta High – a school with a focus on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). After Delta, Arthur went on to attain a degree in electrical engineering from Washington State University and subsequently landed a job at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. A published paper on electrochemistry in the Energy and Environmental Science Journal and two certificates from Harvard Business School further increased his academic achievements.

Baranovskiy’s talent and skills as an engineer were recognized by Columbia Basin College, a local community college. At 22, he was chosen as the youngest adjunct professor to join the staff, and now teaches Architectural Design, Mechanical Design, and Advanced 3D Modeling.

Despite having a rich academic background, entrepreneurship remained an end goal for Baranovskiy. “For as long as I can remember, my greatest interest was in starting, growing, and running businesses. This can be seen in my track record of starting various ventures over the last five years,” says Baranovskiy.

He launched his first company, Gentleman’s Luxury Products, as a senior in high school, specializing in selling men’s jewelry, watches, and shoes, working with suppliers from Asia and the Middle East. Despite earning incredible recognition and scaling the company to great heights, Baranovskiy sold it to focus on his degree and new position with the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. His next venture was AYB Drafting, which later evolved to ARY Engineering, representing a culmination of his remarkable engineering skills and entrepreneurial mindset. The initiative became a success, leading Baranovskiy to revisit some of his life’s decisions. “I was halfway through my master’s degree in electrical engineering, but then dropped out to fully focus on my company, which grew 200% in revenue from 2020 to 2021, and I expect another 200% from 2021 to 2022.”

ARY Engineering is a multi-discipline industrial engineering firm based in Richland, WA. It is home to a professional team of designers and engineers known for seamless services specializing in serving industrial, manufacturing, and cloud services clients. Through passion and hard work, Baranovskiy has helped the company scale and grow to incredible heights, building a team willing to take on challenges with passion, innovation, and creativity. As a leader, Baranovskiy is known to help push people to fulfill their potential and enable them to become the best, most productive versions of themselves.

At the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Arthur also founded his third company, Tri-Cities Clean, a commercial janitorial and disinfecting company. This venture helped local businesses stay open by disinfecting their spaces once COVID exposure has been reported or suspected, and later evolved to occupy a sector of the local janitorial market. Within just a year of operations, TC CLean had accumulated equipment, a dedicated team, and aeries of committed clients. While many local janitorial services let their employees stay at home enjoying unemployment, TC Clean’s team took the opportunity to seize contracts from the competition, providing local businesses with much-needed services. Just 14 months after operations began, the company was sold, allowing Arthur to focus back on his role at his engineering firm.

It is true that for an entrepreneur, passion is an essential and infectious trait. Now, Arthur Baranovskiy leads his industrial engineering firm with great devotion and academic accomplishments. He is undoubtedly an asset in the field of engineering, continually providing design support and teaching future engineers the knowledge of drafting and engineering.
