RTC was founded in 1950 by Walter Nathan. Richard Nathan, with 37 years of experience, now leads the family-owned business. Walter and Richard guide RTC with a set of core beliefs:
*Be ethical in every action *Find and enable the best talent *Reinvest every available dollar back into the business *Expand and connect global associates and facilities
Support the communities where the company operates RTC has followed these beliefs to evolve from a Chicago-based manufacturer of paper tubes to one of the world's largest retail activation organizations. Our proudest measure of success is our large number of multi decade associates, suppliers and customers.
RTC is investment and innovation driven. Our success as an innovation leader is made evident by being named to the Eureka List as one of the Top 10 innovative businesses in Illinois for both 2015 & 2016 by Crain's, the leading Chicago business journal. RTC's range of new products can be found in tens of thousands of retail stores around the world. Our investments can be seen in new facilities, including a 350,000 square feet manufacturing plant in China, a soon to be opened model shop that will triple in size and a new office in Paris. We are also investing in the communities where we work by increasing hiring of underemployed segments of the population and improving our carbon footprint. RTC focuses on continual improvement, evolving our capabilities and reinvesting in our business to deliver higher performing solutions for our clients. Brands and retailers require more strategic thinking on the shopper experience, higher levels of innovation, a more effective process for managing customer-specific requirements, access to a broader array of manufactured solutions, and the capability to orchestrate a broader and more complex supply chain. RTC has the integrated capabilities and product development experience to solve these needs and provide you with solutions that help grow your business at retail.
