Short run specialist, long run capabilities

Founder Griffith D. Roberts started his blacksmith shop in 1870

The business used its initial location until it was destroyed by a fire in 1930. At that time, Roberts Manufacturing built a new facility, which it still uses today. In 2010, the company went through a major expansion, going from an 8,000-square-foot facility to 62,000-square-foot facility, adding a powder coating line and batch that year.

In 2019, business grew so much that Roberts Manufacturing acquired a second facility adjacent to the original building. That expansion allowed the business to double its capacity, bringing it to a total of 125,000 square feet of space. The expansion also allowed the business to add new capabilities, including a tube laser and a punch laser combo machine.
