RD. Associates is a leading Manufacturer's Representative of Electronic and Electromechanical components serving the Mil-Aero, Mass Transit, Microwave, Wireless and Medical markets across Canada.
R.D. Associates was founded in Toronto, Ontario in 1972 by Ross E. Dix. Ross believed that there were two keys to success in this business -- knowing whom to talk to and knowing what we are talking about. This holds true today. Upon his passing in 2009, Mary M. Reando took over the company. Under Mary's leadership we have continued to grow and prosper.
We provide multi-level support to our customers: Technical support to Engineering to gain print position and with Purchasing to win the business either direct or through Distribution.
We are committed to long-term customer and principal relationships with the highest degree of customer satisfaction.
