R. L. Reppert, Inc. has announced they are celebrating 50 years in business in 2023. With most construction companies unable to weather the storms of the construction industry’s demands and changes, any company who is in business this long has a real solid foundation.
In 1973, Richard Reppert Sr. started his namesake company, R. L. Reppert, with only four part-time employees. Their focus at that time was drywall hanging and finishing of residential properties, but as the company continued to expand their size and reputation, they began to complete other aspects of the walls and ceilings industry. Richard guided the company’s successful growth, from a small company operating out of his home to the company employing in excess of 100 field personnel during peak times and including much more trades performed by the growing company.
Throughout the history of the company, R. L. Reppert continued to grow and take on projects larger and larger, all while providing the quality and service their customers expected from the company. Their reputation of being a quality contractor focusing on the finished project, deadlines, value and professionalism is what has grown this company successfully since 1973. Over the years, R. L. Reppert completed some of the area’s largest and most prestigious projects, all while remaining true to their commitment to quality and service for each and every project they are involved in.
“The key to achieving an anniversary such as 50 years within our industry is truly our employees,” stated Richard Reppert Jr., who took over as President and is part of the second generation, alongside his sisters. “Their highly skilled work and hyper-focused attention to detail allows our company to provide quality service to all our projects. We really are unable to achieve any level of growth, recognition or quality work without each and every employee, from the hardworking, dedicated field staff to the office staff, who puts in tremendous amounts of work. We are able to celebrate this achievement of 50 years in business, and it is something we do not take for granted.”
The company’s long list of awards and achievements over the past 50 years is nothing shy of incredible, some as far back as the late 1980s. They continue to maintain their family-type atmosphere despite their continued growth. As you can imagine, they are a family company operating on their second generation, who continues to maintain the foundation of how the company started. “We strive to ensure that all employees feel like a part of our organization, no matter what their role entails,” Reppert said about his employees, who he considers part of the family.
