Rodeco Co. Established 1960

From the very beginning, our mission has always been to be a results-oriented team providing the best solutions to  meet the needs of manufacturers. Whether your goal is to extend equipment life, produce a better finish, develop a more efficient process or simply to provide our customers with information you need to make better business decisions, our experienced staff delivers what you need.

Rodeco was founded in 1960 by Robert Johannesen in Sanford, NC. The company was then purchased by current owner Bill Murphy and his partner, Jim Borrell in 1982. Rodeco was outgrowing it's space in just a few years so in 1986, Jim and Bill moved Rodeco to a 9,000 square-foot location, also in Sanford, where the company remains in operation today. In 1994, a 4,000 square-foot addition was completed and then another 13,000 square-foot was added in 2004, resulting in their current 26,000 square-foot facility.

In 2000, Bill Murphy bought Jim Borrell’s share of ownership, making him the sole proprietor of Rodeco. In 2009, Bill's son Ryan took over the day-to-day operations. The Murphys bring a unique excitement and passion for American manufacturing to their jobs. They both believe that helping to improve domestic manufacturing efforts results in more profits, more jobs, and less outsourcing. It is their desire to strengthen the US manufacturing industry—and the country along with it—that motivates them every day.

I just wanted to take a moment to say “THANK YOU” to both of you and to your staff for the superior (customer) service and product coming from your company. I am not only fairly new to the Sunbelt family, but I am still learning and getting acquainted with the many customers/vendors we are working with. I am very big on business relationships and partnerships and I am so glad the Rodeco Company is part of our family/team. Although we have only placed 2-3 orders with your company, each experience has been nothing short of professional, phenomenal and delightful. Such customer service has become almost extinct these days, and it’s refreshing to know that in some parts of corporate America such customer service is still alive and well. Please know as long as Sunbelt Flooring Solutions needs shot, we will ALWAYS use Rodeco as our one and ONLY steel shot vendor/supplier. Please know we will HIGHLY recommend your company when asked and have no problem being an unpaid spokesperson for your company as well.
