Founder J.O. Reigle started the company in 1945 out of a desire to build “the finest plant with the finest equipment to produce and sell the world’s finest cooking ware.” As a business owner, salesman, philanthropist and family man, Reigle embodied the self-reliance, core values, innovation and resolve that have become the cornerstone of the company. With both third and fourth generations of the Reigle family—as well as other multi-generational families—working for Regal Ware, he created a legacy of excellence that continues to live on today.
“We have achieved this 75-year milestone through the collaboration, ingenuity and dedication of our employees,” said Regal Ware President & CEO, Jeff Reigle. “We know that it’s not just our passion for our customers that has boosted us to the top; it’s our emphasis on delivering superior quality in everything we do, our pledge to maintain integrity in all business practices, and our dedication to innovation and continuous improvement. It is our exceptionally skilled and talented staff, our commitment to workplace diversity, and our long history of treating everyone with dignity and respect. And it is our connection to our local community, where our employees donate countless hours of service and where we direct much of our financial support. We heartily recognize that the success of our company comes directly from the success of our customers, our business partners and our employees.”
Regal Ware conducts business in more than 45 countries. It is a long-standing member of the Direct Selling Association, the Cookware Manufacturers’ Association and the International Housewares Association.
