Founded in 1971 by Roy H. Rogers, family-owned and -run R&R Products is the world’s leading manufacturer of replacement parts for the turf and commercial golf industries.
Chances are, many (if not most) rounds of golf have, in some way, included a link to R&R, as the Tucson, Arizona-based company currently has a line of more than 25,000 replacement parts, golf course accessories, irrigation, safety and tools (after starting humbly with fewer than 100).
The extensive line of products and parts is wide-ranging. Along with manufacturing commercial golf course accessories, including sand trap rakes, sprinkler cap yardage markers, ball washers, flagsticks, range mats, and golf club cleaners, R&R also sells a full line of turf products and power equipment (made by other manufacturers like Briggs & Stratton, Kubota, and Husqvarna). In addition, the company also purveys safety equipment like chemical distribution cans, storage cabinets, and safety wear.
Furthermore, R&R Products offers a warranty that’s unmatched in the industry, as a company motto is “all R&R reels, bedknives, and tines are guaranteed against defects for the life of the product.” Of equal importance, 98 percent of the company’s orders are shipped the same day the order is received.
The Rogers family’s touches at R&R say a great deal about the company, as Roy’s children (Carol, Don, and Tom) and grandson (Brian) have run the 275-employee business since their father’s passing in 2003.
Such familial pride extends to its wares, as R&R maintains a sales philosophy of offering high-end products at fair prices, along with having their items in stock at all times for immediate delivery.
The company’s 300,000-square-foot manufacturing and warehouse facilities include modern and impressive oversight of its products, featuring computerized, numeric controlled lathes and mills for precision machining, punch presses, and state-of-the-art laser cutting.
