About Rodeco

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. In 1986, Jim and Bill moved Rodeco to a 9,000 square foot location, also in Sanford, where the company remains in operation today. This location received a 4,000 square foot addition in 1994 and another 13,000 square foot addition 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. Bill brings a unique excitement and passion for American manufacturing to his job, and believes that helping to improve domestic manufacturing efforts results in more profits, more jobs, and less outsourcing. It is Bill’s desire to strengthen the US manufacturing industry—and the country along with it—that motivates him every day.
