Rich and The Crew

We are blessed to have an awesome team of professionals who stick around over the years!

Rich Moody

This is Rich! He grew up working and building things in the family machine shop and around the farm. He is the 5th generation of his family to work with metal.

Having graduated from Franklin Technical High School's machine shop, Rich worked in a local fabrication shop for 8 years. He then started his own business in 2000, working out of a van and small corner of the machine shop welding and fabricating. He quickly outgrew that space and renovated the family farm's tobaco barn into a shop, now with expanded space.

With the help of a friend, Rich learned CNC machining and programing, and now haa a vertical machine ceneter.

Rich enjoys problem-solving and repairs of all types.
