The Beginning - 1973
The late Paul Carollo, Sr. and two partners recognized opportunity to better serve the growing automotive industry with prototyping services for engineering design and testing purposes. In 1973, RCO Engineering, Inc. opened for business in metro Detroit’s Roseville. Less than a year later, the U.S. economy took a damaging hit from an oil crisis. Countless small businesses serving the auto industry shuttered. Anticipating a likely RCO bankruptcy, Paul’s partners headed in a new direction.
