SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif.—Since 1986, RD Rubber Technology Corp. has consistently built its business by earning the trust of customer after customer—an achievement that has led to three decades of steady growth. The company, a specialist in the precision molding of rubber components, credits its longevity to a unique commitment to long-term relationships, uncompromising quality standards, and unwavering attention to detail. Many of RD Rubber’s original customers from the 1980s are still working with the company, and those long-term relationships also apply to employees, vendors, and the local business community.
RD Rubber (www.rdrubber.com) has been located in Santa Fe Springs from the beginning. When the company needed to expand operations and move to a bigger facility to accommodate its growing business, it stayed local to retain the longtime employees who have been instrumental to its success.
Over the years, RD Rubber has focused on the custom fabrication of high-tech component parts for OEMs in the healthcare, aerospace, military, electronics, and food equipment industries. The company recently added an ISO Class 8 clean room with complete liquid silicone molding (LIM), assembly, and inspection in the same room. RD Rubber is ISO 9001:2008 and ITAR certified, often working with products that have no margin for error.
The company’s motto is “the critical invisible” because RD Rubber often makes the hidden components for applications that are critical to human safety. All manufacturing is done on-site in its facility, and its supplier base is local so that quality can be monitored closely from start to finish, the company reports.
