Happy Birthday to Us!

RDS Reflects on Years of Hard Work

Is there anything better than celebrating a birthday? We don’t think so! Birthdays signify another year gone by and remind us of all the good that has happened in the previous 12 months. This past year, we’ve had some exciting changes happen—which is why we’d like to take July to recognize our birthday and reflect on all the improvements we’ve made as a company over the years.

The way we look at it every July is a milestone for us here at RDS! Since 1973, we’ve remained a family-owned business that has grown from a small specialized radiology delivery company to the No. 1 courier service in the tri-state area. We’ve come a long way from only transporting medical records to doctors’ offices! We’re proud that we now offer a wide range of services in addition to our messenger skills. Of course, to get where we are today, we’ve had to work very hard and change with the times. But as we think about our progress, we feel there are a great many reasons why we’ve catapulted to the top of our industry.

So, in total David Letterman fashion—here are RDS’s Top 10 Milestones that have led us to where we are today—celebrating yet another birthday!
