Eric and Cindy Friederichs, Owners
Eric Friederichs joined the Master Metal Products family in 1971.
Over the years, Eric has learned the business inside out. His first jobs at MMP — journeyman painter, machine operator and welder — taught him the importance of high quality workmanship.
As his role evolved and he worked more closely with MMP’s longstanding customers, Eric brought the company’s longstanding dedication to customer service to life.
In 1995, Eric began handling MMP’s day-to-day business operations, including customer relations, shop production and estimating.
Cindy Friederichs has been involved in MMP’s business since the mid ‘80s, helping to run the company’s office, business affairs and managing customer relations. She has continued to accept new responsibilities and today splits the daily duties of running the business with Eric.
In 2006, the Friederichs family purchased Master Metal Products.
