Our Mission

Our Story

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.
