Richard Peterson, founder of Richard's Fence, gained his earliest experience in the industry as a fencing installer for a major national department store in the 1960s. He gained insight not only in the technical aspects of the business, but in the value of quality and customer service as well.

Having developed a series of labor-saving fencing manufacture and installation innovations, Mr. Peterson founded Richard’s Fence in 1968. Since then, Richard's Fence has supplied long-lasting, durable fence material and uncompromising service to fence distributors and contractors.
