R&R Products Inc.
R&R Products Inc. is the leading manufacturer of replacement parts for the commercial golf and turf industry. With more than 275 employees, we are a family-owned and -operated corporation. Our leaders are Thomas Rogers, president and CEO; Don Rogers, vice president and COO; Carol Hudson, vice president of sales; and Brian Larson, vice president and CFO.
Our company was founded by Roy H. Rogers in 1971, and he remained president until he passed away in August 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 that has become the world's leading manufacturer of golf and turf replacement parts.
Roy was formerly president and founder of Rogers Manufacturing Co., a manufacturer of patented turf sweepers and aerators. Rogers Manufacturing was sold to Jacobsen Manufacturing Co, a larger commercial mower manufacturer, in 1968. He 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, were not well-accepted in the turf industry. Roy believed 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 unequaled 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 more than 300,000 square feet.
Our line of replacement parts, golf course accessories, irrigation, safety and tools has grown from less than 100 in 1971, to more than 1,000 in 1985, to more than 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 they are received.
