Our Team

 
Rich Capps

Rich Capps, President

What started out as a one man shop has developed into a thriving family business. It all started with an idea for an improved version of a hand float, from that one item has grown a full line of Quality Equine Dental Instruments that we ship all over the world.

I would like for you to meet the crew...

Zach came to work for Capps Manufacturing in August of 2005. He has evolved into our full time welder and is very good at it. He also assembles a number of our products before they are shipped out including our speculums. Zach takes great pride in hand fitting and making sure all the speculums are to exact precision before they leave our shop.
