What has fueled your company’s growth?

“We have developed a culture driven by teamwork, continuous improvement and a belief that everything we produce needs to be perfect. We truly partner with our customers to understand their needs and requirements to ensure every project is successful. Our customers get the benefit of our deep manufacturing experience and knowledge, giving them a leg up on their competition.”

What is the biggest obstacle to your company’s growth?

“Our strategy is to partner with the right customers who have product needs that fit well with our expertise. Every new product design, prototype and manufacturing ramp-up gets our full attention so we are very careful not to overextend ourselves. We manage our growth carefully to ensure that every project is a success.”

Do you plan to make any changes to your company?

“Of course! We have a five-year plan in place that includes advanced technology research and development, additional automation and infrastructure improvements. However, I believe the most important changes we will make are the ones we can’t anticipate as we react to the market, technology and our customer demands.”

Who are the business people you admire and why?

“I admire small business owners. They put their heart, soul, and money on the line every day. These are the people who develop new and innovative products, keep the economy churning, drive employment growth, and make up the bulk of RSP customers.”

What is your company’s most important growth strategy?

“Our goal is to establish a level of trust with our clients so that as they grow and have additional needs, we are the first and only option they consider. Almost all of our largest customers started with small orders and the relationship grew over time. RSP is here to grow with our customers.”
