Started in 1978 by Mike and Eileen Andreka, RDC specialised in radio communication products for the security industry from the onset. Since then, RDC has gained a reputation for both groundbreaking technology and manufacturing quality. The RDC transmitter was the world’s first eight-tone security transmitter, and the company went on to develop the multi-user system since adopted by the industry. The 30th anniversary celebrations followed the annual Securex trade exhibition at which RDC displayed its latest innovations: The D20 base station/repeater with built-in GPRS technology, two new transmitter models being the TX-lite and a model with Contact ID reporting capability, an in-car mobile base station and some innovative enhancements to RDC’s TX Pack.

Master of ceremonies for the evening was RDC Director Peter Soundiades. Guests were addressed by RDC stalwarts Mike and Eileen Andreka. Outgoing MD, Mike Andreka, told guests that he had lived his dream through RDC. “I got to do what I love doing everyday as my job for RDC. I enjoy what I do so much that I even have my computer and instruments with me when I go away on holiday.” Eileen acknowledged the long-standing RDC staff with whom she has worked for so many years and who are still with the company. These staff members have been at RDC for between 15 and 27 years. Mike and Eileen were later presented with Lifetime Achievement Awards signed by all the current staff at the company. Lee-Ann acknowledged and thanked RDC’s long-standing customers who have shown loyalty to RDC for many years. Lee-Ann thanked them for the years they have worked together and for the many things they had taught her over the years.
