Lee Rodriguez started Rodco Enterprises in 1983. G.E. (Eddie) Brandt joined Lee in 1987 and they formed Rodco-Brandt, Mfg. Both Lee and Eddie worked for A.. Brandt Co., Inc in Fort Worth for over 25 years.
Our time with A. Brandt consisted of work in many areas of the furniture production and daily aspects of the business side of the company. While working with A. Brandt, we produced furniture on the GSA contracts. When we formed Rodco-Brandt, we had years of experience of producing top quality furniture and carried that standard of quality into our production of furniture.
In 1987, Rodco-Brandt was awarded our first GSA Contract for furniture and at the present time we produce furniture under 3 GSA Contracts. Rodco-Brandt has provided over one hundred million dollars in product and installation to the U.S. Military in the last five years alone.
Starting with 2 employees in 1983 in a small warehouse, we now maintain between 100 to 110 employees full-time manufacturing furniture from our 80,000 sq. ft. facility in Mansfield, Texas.
Rodco-Brandt was the first company certified by GSA to meet the Department of the Army Furnishings Program Specifications. Our depth of experience in manufacturing affords a unique understanding to meet the requirements of our customers. Our mission has always been to meet our customer's needs by providing high quality products, on time deliveries, and knowledgeable customer service.
