G.D. Roberts – A history of innovation since 1870

Founder Griffith D. Roberts started his blacksmith shop in 1870 in a 4,000-square-foot facility. Each generation of the family added their own touch to the business, Roberts said.

The business used its initial location until it was destroyed by a fire in 1930. At that time, Roberts Manufacturing built a new facility at the same site, which it still uses today. In 2010, the company went through a major expansion, going from a single-bay plant to six bays and expanded paint facilities.

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 the ERP System and a tube laser.

Each generation of the family added their own touch to the business, said Roberts, adding this contribution has been to expand its customer base and add new technology.
