Press Release

September 26, 2013

Ogden — Richards Sheet Metal Works, Inc., a precision metal manufacturing company in Ogden, is celebrating its 85th anniversary with an expansion, new machinery and special events. The company broke ground on its fourth building onsite in June, which will increase its capacity from about 70,000 square feet to 90,000 square feet.

Now run by the family’s third generation, Owner Stephen R. Richards says their focus on providing their customers with innovative solutions over the years has fueled their company’s growth.

“We have continually upgraded our equipment to insure that we are competitive and have the high-tech tools necessary to complete the most detailed projects,” Richards said. Richards Sheet Metal provides a variety of metal services to industries including transportation, water treatment, aerospace, military and others.

An open house and company picnic to recognize the company’s 85th anniversary will be held in October upon completion of the new building. Founder I.L. Richards started Richards Tin Shop in1928 in a 400-square-foot shop on 24th Street in Ogden during the Great Depression. With the help of his father and brothers, they developed an initial market niche for stove flues, small tin bathtubs and watering troughs for the U.S. Forest service.
