Thomas Verified Supplier Status Announced by Electronic Component Specialist RDI

RDI announces it has received Verified Supplier status with the premier industrial supplier directory Thomas, allowing the company to enhance its ability to qualify OEM leads.

RDI is pleased to announce it has been granted Thomas Verified Supplier status by the Thomas organization.


The Thomas Register of American Manufacturers, now ThomasNet is an online platform for supplier discovery and product sourcing in the US and Canada. It was once known as the “big green books” and “Thomas Registry”, and was a multi-volume directory of industrial product information covering distributors, manufacturers and service companies within thousands of industrial categories that is now published on ThomasNet.


The Thomas Verified Supplier badge on company profiles lets buyers know RDI’s advertised products, services, and company information have been validated by the Thomas Supplier Analyst Team. Certification helps build trust between suppliers, engineers and MRO (maintenance, repair and operations) professionals and is an important metric for many OEMs in RDI’s marketplace.


Sandy Templeton, RDI’s Digital Marketing Manager said “Having Thomas Verified Supplier status allows RDI to further prequalify prospects because we can sort Thomasnet enquiries to only source from badged, validated companies. That approach tends to indicate more serious attempts from buyers to engage.”


Since its founding in 1988, RDI has been involved in thousands of electronic design projects worldwide, providing electronic components, engineering services and full system manufacturing, with the singular goal of helping deliver products that meet or exceed customer schedule, specification and budget expectations.


Templeton adds “The extra credibility afforded by Thomas Verification will allow RDI to further enhance its new digital marketing funnels and secure more business online going forward.”


RDI has over 500 employees worldwide along with a 90,000 square foot design and manufacturing facility in Shenzhen, China and provides multiple discipline engineering support as well as in-house tooling, SMT and through-hole PCB assembly, injection molding, and final product packaging capabilities.


In addition, RDI offers PCB design, firmware development, industrial design, software/hardware quality assurance programs, validation services and comprehensive materials management and logistics.


The company supplies electromechanical devices, including miniature switches, audio devices, speakers and custom cable assemblies in addition to full Contract Manufacturing services via its wholly owned CM in China.
