Serving the Capital Region Since 1907

Company History

Charles Springer was a German Immigrant who opened “Charles Springer Welding Works” in the early 1900’s.  Charles passed away unexpectedly at which time Louis A. Rizzo, his employee at the time, became the second owner, and is also the father of Louis V. Rizzo, the third owner.

These generations paved the road for what is to come. Without their dedication and years of hard work, the company wouldn’t have thrived as it has.  Louis V. Rizzo was the third owner of Springer – he spent nearly 40 dedicated years running the shop and countless hours of welding; he retired in 2011.

As the fourth owner of the company, I know that we each have our own special people to thank for the longevity and continued success of Springer.
