The President


After seeing his previous employer relocate overseas, Bob founded Richards Design Inc. in 1996 along with his wife, Hindy. Bob is a master machinist with over 4 decades of experience. While being 'the boss' has its perks, he still likes to get his hands dirty every day doing whatever it takes to help his dedicated team of employees get the job done. Some of Bob's passions while not at work include sailing, running, and spending time with his family.

The Cannon


We know what you're thinking... what's with the cannon? The cannon is a one of a kind solid brass replica designed and built by president Bob Richards. It's been known to make cameo appearances at special events all across New England. When it's not 'on duty' you might see it on display in our lobby. Check our facebook page for updates on the cannon's latest exploits.
