Our company was founded by Roy H. Rogers in 1971 and he remained President unitl he passed away in August of 2003. Roy was extremely proud of R&R as he worked with all three of his children Carol, Tom and Don and his grandson Brian. He enjoyed every day with the close family business which has become the world's leading manufacturer of golf and turf replacement parts.
Roy Rogers was formerly President and founder of Rogers Manufacturing Company, a manufacturer of patented turf sweepers and aerators. Rogers Manufacturing was sold to Jacobsen Manufacturing Company, a larger commercial mower manufacturer, in 1968. Roy Rogers retired until 1971 when he decided there was a great need for a quality replacement parts manufacturer in the commercial turf industry. Up to this time, there had been several replacement parts companies in this industry that had lacked the control of manufacturing processes necessary to produce a quality product, and therefore, they were not well accepted in the turf industry. Roy Rogers felt that in order to compete with the large original equipment manufacturers he would have to have complete control of all facets of the manufacturing processes, especially heat treating. Therefore, he built a factory and purchased equipment capable of manufacturing the best replacement parts available.
The control we have over our line of replacement parts is unequalled in our industry, as we have our own computerized numeric controlled lathes and mills for precision machining, punch presses, state-of-the-art laser cutting center as well as five heat treating systems for complete control of the temper on all of our blades. In all, our modern manufacturing and automated warehousing facilities encompass over 300,000 square feet.
Our line of replacement parts, golf course accessories, irrigation, safety and tools has grown from less than a hundred in 1971 to over a thousand in 1985 to over 18,000 parts today. We have become the leader in our industry in replacement parts and are committed to continue to grow and offer an ever expanding line of replacement parts and accessories.
Our sales philosophy has always been to offer a top quality product at an attractive price and have the item in stock at all times for immediate delivery. R&R Products offers the best warranty in the business, “All R&R Reels, Bedknives and Tines are guaranteed against defects for the life of the product” and R&R ships 98% of all orders the same day the order is received.
