The Rodetal Story

Rodetal Ltd was founded by Rod Mahoney and Alan Marshall (Rod and Al) in 2007. Disillusioned with conventional solutions to a widely known plumbing problem, the two friends committed to sharing ideas and expertise in creativity, plumbing and business to create an innovative and cost effective answer to a problem that plumbers had been grappling with for years. 

BigBoss Adaptors

Rod and Alan asked the same question and after months of brainstorming, designing and testing, the first BigBoss adaptor was sold in Coventry in 2007. Today, the BigBoss is sold nationwide saving plumbers time, energy and money, all because two friends committed to dreaming big and never losing sight of their goal.


In 2016, embraced the true meaning of thier business name – Rod et al., (meaning ‘and others’). They chose to  expand their business and offer corporate and executive coaching to people needing support to make progress and overcome challenges.

Corporate and Executive Coaching

Rodetal Ltd continues to grow and now includes the Researcher Coaching Programme working with academics across the world

Client Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

“In my 42 years in the industry I have seen many new products come on to the market, but this is one which will open new avenues in the trade. The BigBoss is original and a real asset to the plumbing industry. In my opinion its simplicity and ease of application is a revolution to the plumbing trade, saving time and therefore benefiting both the plumber and the consumer”

“Not only do they [the BigBoss] seem easier to fit but they’re less prone to damage when stored in your van and are actually a little cheaper!”

“Katy’s ability as a coach has helped me to realise what is important to me. Working out exactly what each goal is, and separating this from other possibilities, has formed a fundamental part of each session. Without these coaching sessions, I think that I would still be dreaming, but not achieving the career that I would like.”
