R&F Industries is a small chemical manufacturing business based in Luling, Texas, producing a variety of chemicals, especially those for oilfield drilling.
It all began in 1990 when Frank Woodward and Raymond McGlothlin formed R&F Industries in Houston, Texas. Their first product was Clay Seal, a shell stabilizer. Upon his partner's death, Raymond bought out the heirs and became the soul owner of R&F. In 2004, after many years of working in Houston, he decided to move the company to Luling, Texas, its current location. His son Stan joined the company in 2006 as Vice President and General Counsel.
