Roda Deaco was founded by Ron Bodnar in Edmonton, Alberta to meet the needs of new safety rules in Canada in the early 1990s. Ron was a skilled engineer who used the swing gate design as a slim-fitting answer to tight engine pipe work. By offering small valve sizes and specially-machined adaptors, he could fit almost any size vehicle or industrial engine with an air intake shutoff valve. In the 2000s, he and his team answered the need for converting the latest turbocharged pickups and heavy trucks by introducing full-service kits. In 2007, the company joined AMOT’s brand family and expanded the air shut off valve product lines across the Americas. More recent innovations include compact butterfly valves and ThrottleStop plug-and-play systems to improve diesel safety for those supporting the oil and gas industries.
