In business since 1928, Richards is a total solution for quality metal fabrication for a wide variety of customers such as yourself. We provide business and industry with world-class products made of metal, finished and ready for application or marketing. Whether a mass-produced component for a large corporation or one-off modification for a piece of local farm equipment, Richards gets the job done. We offer a quality product that is made-to-order for a competitive price, and consistently perform beyond your expectations.
Some of the industries we serve include: transportation, waste management, military and government, mining, food services and sanitation, machinery, construction and architectural, institutional/recreational, pharmaceuticals, general industrial, farming and entrepreneurial start-ups.
Our ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) System has greatly increased our ability to schedule, track, repeat and control our processes and costs. The system has helped us become even more responsive to our customers’ needs.
Continuous improvement is a part of Richards’ culture as we have integrated processes such as 5S, Lean and ERP Visual. We still look up to the industry giants who have really ingrained these habits and systems into all areas of their companies. We have concentrated our efforts in these programs, taking advantage of the slowness in the marketplace, to further educate and improve ourselves — and are committed to maintaining these strides in the future.
