Expansion plans for RDM
Pioneering HVACR controls company Resource Data Management (RDM) has acquired a leading Taiwan-based component and electronics manufacturer.
Andy Chandler, RDM Managing Director, said: “We are delighted with the acquisition of FYC Co Ltd. The deal secures a high quality, cost-effective manufacturing capability for RDM’s expanding range of controls for the future.”
The Taiwan-based company has recently invested in two new state-of-the-art, rohs-compliant surface-mount electronics production machines, a new assembly line and a plastic moulding and enclosure design facility.
Andy Chandler said: “We have worked closely with the company in the past, and their approach and professionalism are second-to-none. We will be co-operating with them on the development of a new generation of controls and related products that significantly extend our range.”
Following the move, all RDM products and software will be designed and developed in the UK, with manufacture carried out in Taiwan.
The purchase follows a recent major development of RDM’s Glasgow headquarters site. This included the expansion of its 24-7 monitoring bureau, and creation of enlarged research and development facilities.
Meanwhile, in the past month the company has completed the installation of two wind turbines at its headquarters. When fully operational, they will supply more than two-thirds of the businesses’ power needs.
Andy said: “I am a strong believer in sustainable solutions, and we have been pursuing this as a company long before it became the fashionable thing to do. It is also a key driver for some of our largest customers.
“The new wind turbine installation will make a significant contribution to reducing the environmental impact of our energy use, and – importantly – help us further develop systems to interface with and monitor alternative energy sources.”
