Business Description

Rayco is a second generation, family owned and operated upholstery shop.  Founded in the late 1940s as ‘Rayco Auto Seat Covers’ and the ‘Rayco Manufacturing Co.’ in Patterson, New Jersey.  It grew into a national franchise of dealers distributing shock absorbers, mufflers and seat covers, and by 1968 had 150 stores across the united states, and Puerto Rico.  Some time in the late 1970s, the Rayco national franchise went Bankrupt, which allowed the owners of the shops to keep the Rayco name and run independently.

Purchased by the Tiberi family in 1976, Rudy Sr. and Ginger Tiberi ran the company for 35 years.  Over that period of time they saw the growing demand for car and boat upholstery and starting hiring some of the best trimmers in the business.  Eventually make Racyo synonymous with upholstery/mufflers and shocks.

In 1994 their son Rudy Jr. started working in the family business.  During that time he was being trained by the employees, who were highly skilled trimmers, who most were self taught and had exceptional talent for the business.  After years of learning how to sew/make custom patterns, and run the office, Rudy Jr eventually became the head upholsterer and manager for the shop.

In 2011 Rudy Jr. purchased the company from his parents, and has directed the business to solely focusing on upholstery.  Using his 22 years of experience to grow the business into not just auto and marine but medical, aviation, commercial and industrial upholstery.  His present staff has over 70 years of combined knowledge and experience, and strive to keep the balance between the “old world family friendly work environment” with 21st century cutting edge service and products.
