RK Wolfgang: Carrying on the legacy
RK Wolfgang got its start as the St. Paul Statuary, which was founded by a group of Italian immigrants at the turn of the twentieth century. At that time, the business’ main focus was on casting, carving, repairing, and painting statues.
In 1950, Raymond Brooks began working at the Statuary. After many years, he and his partners purchased the company in 1976, and in 1985 Ray became the sole owner and renamed the business St. Paul Fabricating and Decorating. He expanded the company’s focus to include custom church furniture and church furniture design, and he built it into the business that serves so many churches and historic buildings today.
Family owned and operated
RK Wolfgang continues to be a family business. Ray’s son Ken ran St. Paul Fabricating and Decorating until 2022, when his son Jacob Brooks took over as the new owner. At that time, the business got another name change, becoming RK Wolfgang: R for Ray, K for Ken, and Wolfgang for the patron saint of woodworkers.
As a third-generation family-owned business, we have a continued dedication to the highest quality products and services that has set the company apart as a trusted resource for churches for so many years.
RK Wolfgang is committed to bringing you the excellent customer experience you deserve. We always take the time to listen to our customers’ questions and concerns, and we are a trusted resource for your church, from beginning to end of your project.
