Richmond is home to the Ebco Group of Companies founded by Helmut and Hugo Eppich. These twin brothers were inspired by the cultural diversity of their workforce as well as their own immigration experience.
Helmut Eppich traveled the world, visiting many of the countries represented by his staff members and collected over 450 artifacts. The idea behind this was to promote education and understanding of different cultures and ways of life. In 2010, this impressive collection was donated to the Richmond Museum for the enjoyment of all.
