“We are honored to be included on this list for the second time. I attribute our growth to being the most technically proficient wet wall company in the Southeast. Our guys have the best training and do an excellent job for our clients,” said Richard Riley, CEO.

“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great – usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring all the companies on the list will be held from October 18 through 20, in San Antonio, TX.

More about Simpson Plastering, LLC

Richard Riley formed Simpson Plastering a premier wet wall company in 2008. The company specializes in stucco, plaster, EIFS, waterproofing, sprayed fire-proofing, and panelizing. It was formed after George Simpson retired, closing Simpson Commercial Contracting and leaving the southeastern market with a void. The Simpson name carried a huge amount of respect and was known for its quality workmanship and technical knowledge. Richard Riley started his career at Simpson Commercial Contracting, and Mike Kennedy worked there for more than 30 years. Many of our skilled workers had a history with Simpson Commercial either with employment or with training and helped give Simpson Commercial its reputation. In a tip of the hat to the Simpson family and George Simpson, Richard named his company after the Simpson name. The Simpson Plastering company goal is the same as Simpson Commercial’s goal: Highest quality work by the best trained people. Hopefully we will leave behind the same legacy as George and Ed Simpson both left after over 60 years in the industry.
