Gould Fasteners is known for its strict standards of excellence when choosing the suppliers it works with. To ensure it is supplying only quality products, the distributor only partners with quality manufacturers — companies like Richco (Essentra Components).
The name Richco is synonymous with innovative design in circuit board hardware, wire routing products and other plastic parts for electronic applications. Founded in 1954 in Chicago, the company’s first manufacturing facility was modest — it was previously a small candy store. Richco began manufacturing extruded plastic parts and quickly became successful due to the quality of its products. The company soon began expanding its offering and its first product catalogue was printed in the late 1950s.
Over the years, the catalogue continued to expand, and Richco’s reputation continued to grow. The company became recognized for its strong product range in circuit board hardware and cable management components. Its production technology was also carefully developed for optimal performance and product flexibility. In addition, Richco built an extensive presence in Europe and Asia.
These advantages attracted Essentra Components to acquire Richco in 2011. Essentra is a leading provider of plastic products with vast resources. The supplier has an international presence and carries an extensive range of products, including over 100,000 standard catalogue parts. They range from knobs and grips to precision instruments.
The top quality PCB and electronics hardware Richco is known for are still available, including easy-to-install board supports, reliable and secure wire saddles, and convenient card guides and pullers. For more information, visit the company’s website.
