Richlind was first established in 1963 and has been developed into a reputable and successful sheet metal and machine shop business by the multi-generational Lind family. Located in Chaska, Minnesota, the 50,000 square foot facility is situated on 8 acres of property with plenty of room to expand. The combined talent and experience of the Lind family stake-holders is over 150 years. This cohesive management team possesses pride and strong work ethics which is reflected in the company’s soul and the way they run the business.
Over the years, the Linds have developed an experienced and loyal staff, whose longevity exceeds decades of years of service. By example, in 1994, the employees elected to follow the company’s move from St. Louis Park to the new Chaska facility. Richlind highly values their employees and staff, and ensures they are well taken care of. Even during lean times, the company has never had to resort to forced layoffs.
The Lind’s reflect fondly on several key factors that have contributed to the company’s success. They include:
- Exemplary customer service – meeting a strict FAA contract for a comprehensive chassis delivery schedule throughout the US opened up many new opportunities with the military market
- Investing back into the company – taking a chance on technology by adding automated equipment and staying current with advancements in their industry
- Achieving high recognition awards with key customers (built on continuously meeting strict performance requirements for on-time delivery, quality, and customer service)
