The core values of Customer confidence, product reliability and durability are taken seriously at RDS. We understand the necessity to test and validate product to insure optimal performance and best protect our customers from the potential expense of warranty claims related to underperformance as well as the more serious consequences of a tarnished brand. Our goal is always is meet or exceed customer requirements.
To meet these goals our Validation Team work closely with Engineering and Quality early in the developmental stages of product design to understand the mechanics and functional requirements so the DVP&R is developed and will be compliant with USCAR, SAE, OEM and Tier 1 customer standards, methods and practices. This not only supports long-term functionality as designed, but helps to insure that the product will continue to retain a competitive edge for our customers.
RDS envisions continual expansion of its product testing program and currently has various in-house capabilities including crimp development, bend, torque, rotation and tensile testing. In addition to our in-house capabilities, we contract with certified and accredited outside labs to support our single source vendor status.
