Quality Policy

Richard Manufacturing Co., Inc. is dedicated to providing our customers with on-time deliveries while maintaining a high standard of product quality and customer responsiveness.

Richard Manufacturing Co., Inc. will identify through planning, the training and verification needed in our production process to prevent non-conforming products.

Richard Manufacturing Co., Inc. will focus on maintaining and improving our quality management system to ensure the highest possible customer satisfaction. We believe these improvements will lead to the continued success and growth of the customer, and our company.

Lean Manufacturing Philosophy

We believe that quality should come from the manufacturing source. We have a 6S policy in place, we hold Kaizen events and we encourage our employees to maintain the mindset of continual improvements.  Combined with just-in-time manufacturing, we're committed to eliminating waste from every possible angle.

DRC Conflict Mineral-Free Supply Chain

In 2010, Congress passed the Dodd-Frank Act. Section 1502 concerns the exploitation and trade of "conflict minerals" by armed groups in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Profits from this trade are helping to finance the conflict in that region, which has resulted in a humanitarian crisis.

Richard Manufacturing wasn't required by the Dodd-Frank Act to disclose any use of conflict minerals, but we audited our suppliers anyway. We are happy to report that we determined that our supply chain is not contributing to the violence in the DRC.

Founded by Neil and Rita Richard in 1965, Richard Manufacturing has grown from a garage job shop to become one of the top 100 suppliers to Sikorsky Aircraft Corporation.

 

In the 1970s, the aviation industry became the company’s main focus. Richard Manufacturing Company is an AS9100 registered company servicing Sikorsky Aircraft, GKN Westland, Vought Aircraft, US military and over fifty other customers.

Over the past fifty years, the company’s facility has increased in size to the current 26,000 square feet and has branched out to service the commercial and medical markets. The company's quality-focused skill set is an asset to our commercial customers, ensuring they receive the highest level of compliance and satisfaction, from prototype to production.

Richard Manufacturing Company is committed to supporting our customers through on time deliveries and customer responsiveness while maintaining the highest standard of product quality. We are dedicated to our never ending focus on maintaining and continually improving our quality management system to ensure the highest possible customer satisfaction.
