The Heart of What We Do

From the early days onward, RCO has earned trust from the automotive industry’s leading brands. By the mid-1980s, we were a go-to partner for automotive engineering, prototyping, and product development services with particular expertise as one of the leading automotive seat manufacturers. As client needs grew, we expanded our capabilities and offerings. This led to important roles within the aerospace design industry as well as the defense industry.


Today, our employees find that RCO operates under the same values that Paul Sr. had when he started the company. These values eventually formed the basis for RCO's operating philosophy.  Emphasis is placed on teamwork and respect for our employees. These values, along with our never ending quest to provide our customers with excellent quality, service, and value will ensure that RCO Engineering, Inc. will be a competitive force well into the 21st Century.

Operating Philosophy

Eight Enduring Commitments


Recognizing that a company is only as strong as its people and that every member of the RCO team is important, proper respect will be given to each member.

The eye cannot say to the hand, "I don't need you!" And the head cannot say to the feet, "I don't need you!" (I Corinthians 12:21)


Decisions will be made based on sound logic after seeking input from all available sources.

"Where there is no counsel, the people will fall; but in the multitude of counselors, there is safety." (Proverbs 11:14)


Management will provide leadership and still display a servant's attitude in the execution of their duties.

"Let him who is the greatest among you become as the youngest, and the leader as the servant." (Luke 22:26)


Promote teamwork, knowing that success will follow and that individual pursuits of power only work against the team.

"Do nothing out of self-ambition or vain conceit, but in humility, consider others better than yourselves." (Philippians 2:3)

"When pride comes, then comes shame; but with the humble is wisdom." (Proverbs 11:2)


Be diligent in work ethics and strive to provide quality in everything that is produced.

"Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your heart." (Ecclesiastes 9:10)


Practice integrity and high ethics in all business dealings, even at the expense of potential profits.

"Better is a little with righteousness, than great revenues without right." (Proverbs 16:8)


Determine to be content and thankful, knowing that these qualities help create harmony in the workplace.

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body, you were called to peace." (Colossians 3:15)
