Manchester, NH — RCD Components Inc., a manufacturer of passive electronic components for 40 years, was honored recently to receive the prestigious Better Business Bureau 2012 Torch Award in the "Large Business" category. The Torch Award recognizes one small, one medium, and one large New Hampshire-based business for their outstanding commitment to maintaining trust, performance and integrity in all facets of their business and for going above and beyond in helping to foster the BBB's mission of advancing marketplace trust.

Howard Brodsky, CEO of CCA Global Partners, BBB Board Chairman, and NH Magazine's 2012 Business Leader of the Year, said that the founder of RCD, Louis Arcidy Sr., ". . . was a charismatic and innovative dynamo who ran the company like his family and made sure every employee, customer, supplier and even competitor was treated with respect. His enthusiasm for creating new ways to improve was contagious. While he is with them now only in spirit, his high ethical standards and character are creatively built into RCD policies, procedures and permeate their very culture." Mr. Brodsky said that world class service like RCD's is expected in today's marketplace but what distinguishes RCD from the others is its devotion to customers and its ability to go above and beyond by doing the unexpected.

There have been numerous awards presented to RCD by its customers, including the Department of the Navy, General Motors, Hewlett Packard and Texas Instruments.
