Local Sheet Metal Fabrication Company: 50 Years in Business and Stronger Than Ever

As Republic enters its fiftieth year in business, the company is not only surviving but is growing.

In today’s gloomy economy, many businesses – big and small – are here today and gone tomorrow. With high unemployment, declining stocks, and a relatively weak dollar, companies have an uphill battle just to survive. In an effort to cut costs of production, most companies resort to outsourcing their manufacturing to cheaper third-world countries. Republic Sales & Manufacturing, one old-fashioned family manufacturing business, however, is not only surviving but is growing in today’s economy.

Incorporated in 1962 as Southwestern Sheet Metal, the Dallas company quickly became one of the largest metal fabricators in North Texas. The company was the in-plant contractor for General Motors, Proctor & Gamble, among other large industrial operations. The company changed its name to Republic Sales and Manufacturing to better reflect its global capabilities.

As the fourth generation acquired the small business in 1991, Republic took advantage of its now diverse education and experience to begin manufacturing its own brand of industrial air equipment. Republic continues to advance its roots in sheet metal by consistently adding new equipment, technology, and capabilities while also utilizing the sheet metal expertise to manufacture the Republic Blower Systems line of air knives, centrifugal blowers, regenerative blowers, and positive displacement blower packages. Because all manufacturing is in-house, Republic has complete control over product designs, materials, processes, and distribution channels.

As Republic enters its fiftieth year in business, the company is not only surviving but is growing. In 2012 alone Republic has added 10 new jobs to the already existing 67 employees. On track for a record-breaking sales year, Republic Sales & Manufacturing proves that manufacturing is not only alive in the US but is thriving.
