RCD HISTORY - Committed to Quality for nearly 50Years!
A very simple business philosophy has been  responsible for the steady growth of RCD. It's called 'commitment'. Since our  inception nearly 5 decades ago, RCD's corporate energies have been channeled into  the research, design, development and production of components with  uncompromising levels of quality.
We are committed to offering a broad line of standards and custom products at  competitive prices, with the engineering expertise and manufacturing capabilities to serve your particular requirements.

PRODUCT RELIABILITY Continuous Monitoring
Throughout each level of design, development, testing, and production, there is a sincere dedication to quality. Our resistors are designed to surpass MIL specifications, and are monitored at various stages of the production cycle via in-process inspection and SPC (Statistical Process Control) techniques.
  • Mil-I-45208 Quality Assurance
  • Mil-STD-790 Reliability Program
  • GIDEP Participant
  • Mil-STD-45662 Calibration Program

  • Defense Supplier under FSCM 56637
  • If you're still looking for the best passives, you've found them!

    Other manufacturers make claims about PPM quality levels as if they were proud of them. RCD believes that one defect is one too many. Whether we ship 10 or 10 million pieces, every single part should conform to spec.
    Our 'ABZED' (Absolute Zero Defect) Continuous improvement Program is resulting in ever improved quality levels, via emphasis on total quality, just-in-time delivery, total preventive maintenance, employee involvement, and simplicity. At RCD, "zero defects" isn't a slogan, it's a state of mind.
    Over the past dozen years, RCD was the only major U.S. resistor manufacturer to  achieve a flawless track record according to Government-Industry (GIDEP)  records. To learn more and see how 7 other manufacturers fares, click  here to  view the article.
