When they settled in Quebec, the Richard brothers knew that they would find an entrepreneurial spirit and workforce passionate about work well done. This pledge of quality is deeply rooted in Quebec and explains the international success garnered by Richard tools.
With two plants in Berthierville and more than 150 employees, the company prides itself on having secured 80% of the finishing tool market in Canada, while maintaining jobs here in Quebec.
A. Richard owes its great success to all the people who demonstrate outstanding inventiveness and commitment to the brand name on a daily basis. Over the years, the company has specialized in wood and plastic processing and developed an injection mould department. The company has even designed its own production robots to assemble hand tools.
A. Richard easily outdistances the competition with its R&D department including an ergonomist-designer, two engineers, three technicians, a 3D printer and several patents in hand.
Today, the A. Richard product line includes 1200 different items sold in 14 countries. The company ranks among the most important world manufacturers of hand tools with 12 million tools produced yearly.
