RichardsApex, Inc., now in its fourth generation of
family ownership and 110 years of continuing operation. The corporation
was formed in 1997 by the merger of G. Whitfield Richards Co., founded
in 1902, and Apex Alkali Products Co., founded in 1933.
With the unbroken continuity of family management,
we feel that we have a special perspective on what is really important
when change occurs. Our belief that the tried and true values of
honesty and fair dealing are as key to success today as they were
110 years ago. As time has brought about technological advancements
and innovations, our commitment to our employees, customers, and
partners is as strong today as ever. As to the future, we will continue
our basic functions: providing superior lubricants, process coatings,
and cleaners to the metalworking industries.
