NGF TOP 100 BUSINESSES IN GOLF
Founded in 1971 by Roy H. Rogers, family-owned and run R&R Products is among the world’s leading manufacturers of replacement parts for the turf and commercial golf industries.
Chances are, many, if not most rounds of golf one has enjoyed have, in some way, included a link to R&R, as the Tucson, Arizona-based company has a line of over 25,000 parts (after starting humbly with fewer than 100).
The massive 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 both turf products and power equipment (made by other manufacturers including Briggs & Stratton, Kubota, and Husqvarna). In addition, the company also purveys safety equipment, including chemical distribution cans, storage cabinets, and safety wear.
The scope and diversity of products has R&R’s sales estimated at $44 million annually.
The family 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 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 (98 percent of all R&R orders are shipped the same day an order is received).
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.
