Our original founding company in 1970 was our screw machine division, Dabko Industries, started with only a couple of Brown & Sharpe and secondary machines. At that time, all business functions, including machine operation, were performed by our owner and founder, Bob Dabkowski. Expansion in the screw machine division proceeded over the years with the addition of customers whose needs brought about the purchase of Davenport and Acme equipment for higher volume requirements, in addition to several more B&S & secondary machines.
Subsequent growth over the years has been primarily through a series of acquisitions, adding more equipment and sister companies to our group. This led to establishment of RGD Technologies Corp. as the parent company to unify the diversified, yet complimentary services of six companies into which the conglomeration had grown. Over the last few years, in order to most effectively service our customer base, we realigned our corporate business strategy to focus on our primary niche of machining precision screw machine & CNC components. This has resulted in divestiture of certain divisions (including New England Spring, Inc. and KLM Tool Co., businesses serving the Spring industry, and Special Machine & Tool Co., a company providing consumer products to the retail industry).
In 2011, significant capital expansion plans were executed with concentrated efforts in our CNC Swiss department. In just over 5 years, 27 CNC Swiss Tsugami Turning Center machines have been purchased and added to our CNC line, plus two LICO LNT-42S-S4-T2 Multi-Slide CNC Turning Center machines. Our future will continue to be shaped with addition of equipment in this area and others, as needed, to support growth opportunities.
