About R&N Motor Company

Our History | R & N Motor Company R&N Motor Company first opened its garage doors in 1958 in Sanford, NC. John Rosser and Caldwell Norris were working for the local Ford Dealership at the time when they decided to become partners and open the auto repair and maintenance shop. Norris liked to sell cars and "Pee-Wee" Rosser enjoyed repairing cars and big trucks, so their collaboration was very successful. A lot has changed since those humble beginnings, but the spirit, values and work ethic that have made R&N Motor Company a community name are still going strong.
