R&M Sales, Inc., has been blessed to have long-term working relationships with many of our manufacturing principals, many of which exceed 20 years. These principals include green sand ferrous, non ferrous casting, permanent mold, forgings, hot rolled products, fabrications, plastics, and machining facilities. We work very closely with our manufacturing principals to ensure that we exceed customer expectations in all areas.
We are proud of these longstanding relationships, developed from providing exceptional parts and services since 1992. We are also proud of the many customers that have been doing business with us for our entire 23 years in business and serve as references for us today.
Our business philosophy is much like this quote from Theodore Roosevelt: "The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly... who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat."
