RDS Technology proud to achieve ISO 9001:2015 accreditation


Following a lengthy process of evaluation by the BSI , RDS Technology has been awarded the ISO 9001:2015 certification for the Design, development, test and manufacture of electronic instrumentation for agricultural and industrial equipment. The ISO 9001:2015 is a globally recognised international benchmark for quality within an organisation.

Achieving this certification ensures suppliers and customers can have confidence in knowing that RDS Technology consistently meets the high standards that have been set out by the International Organisation for Standardisation.

RDS Technology was established in the late 1960s and pioneered the use of electronics for agriculture with the introduction of the Grain Loss Monitor for combine harvesters.

The company subsequently went on to expand its activities into other sectors of mobile machinery and is now a market leader in on-board machinery electronics, serving the industrial, agricultural, quarrying and shipping machinery sectors.

Mike Ballard, Quality Manager for the Minchinhampton site commented:

“It was a fantastic result for RDS!  The award is reflective of the hard work that was put in by everyone at RDS. It is truly a company achievement.”

Gareth Thomas, Operations Manager at RDS Technology said: “An impressive team effort, this whole process has provided structure and direction at Minchinhampton, not just a box ticking exercise. We now have a clear view on where we are going and how to get there.”
