Family business is the best way to describe the RFH Company. If you are part of the family, you work for the business!
Co-Owners, Don and Audrey Billmeyer, started RFH Company in the summer of 1974 knowing that there was a market for the personalized touch. The beginnings were meager, just two hand embroidery machines, but from the start all seven of the Billmeyer children have worked at RFH, whether it be counting inventory, waiting on customers, or doing the actual sewing.
In May of 2005, Co-owner Don Billmeyer passed away and shortly thereafter, Audrey reunited with her husband. The business remains on County Street in Norwalk, where daughter Pam Falcone has assumed the helm, joined by other family members and trusted longtime staff.
In tribute to their parents, the Audrey and Donald Billmeyer Memorial was established to benefit the fine facilities that served their parents so well while battling their illnesses. Every year, a golf tournament is held in their honor with proceeds going to the Whittingham Center of Norwalk Hospital and the Yale-New Haven Hospital Discovery to Cure Program.
