Richard Samuel

Managing Real Estate Broker with Fathom Realty PB00068179

Richard Samuel was born in Bristol, Tennessee back in 1881. I don’t have any data about his childhood that is until the early 1900. He left the University of Virginia in 1903 to work for his uncle.

In 1912, he decided to open up his own company, leaving his uncle, that of course is the rest of the story. He partnered with his uncle and a British company. His first product was a moisture-preserving tobacco tin. Shortly after WWII around 1947 he introduced his newest product and what can I say the rest is history. In that year Richard Samuel Reynolds, Sr. founded the U.S. Foil company, the primary product was of course Reynold’s Wrap. That product transformed food storage. Reynolds Metals is the second-largest aluminum company in the United States and the third largest in the world. Now, do you have some of his product in your kitchen, I know we do. Until tomorrow keep that smile on your face and a penny in your pocket

Good morning James Dray,

Yes of course we have Reynolds wrap in our kitchen and couldn't survive without it! I don't like the knockoffs either by the different store brands they are not the same quality.

Reynolds Metals Company actually no longer exists. It was acquired by Alcoa in the late 1990s and its pieces and parts were either absorbed or sold off. Reynolds Wrap lives, however, as do many of the incredible innovations that emerged from that great company.
