An industry leader for more than 50 years, Table Mate’s manufacturing division, RADCO, is a 92,000-square-foot facility in Shawano, Wisc., where all of the company’s manufactured items are produced.
The company’s humble Wisconsin roots can be traced, appropriately enough, to a cheese factory in Richmond.
In 1978, RADCO (short for Richmond Associated Distributing, Co.), began manufacturing banquet rolls and 84-inch rounds and skirts in a facility that was previously a cheese factory.
As growth continued in the early 80s, RADCO moved into a larger facility on Northridge Drive in Shawano.
Increased growth prompted our current facility to be built in 1994 at 1355 Industrial Drive in the Shawano Industrial Park, housing our tablecover folding lines, banquet roll rewinding lines, skirting lines, bag machine lines, packaging and converting equipment.
Ninety-nine percent of materials for production are sourced in the USA, and all materials and machinery are continuously reviewed and tested to keep our customers on the cutting edge of industry developments.
Table Mate/RADCO offers flexibility to customers from blind and drop ship options to customizing orders with packaging, size and private labels.
RADCO’s facility is audited by reputable third-party companies and consistently earns superior ratings in the areas of quality and safety systems, building security, pest control and preventative maintenance.
For the second year in a row, RADCO has received the Acuity Insurance Outstanding Safety Award given to businesses that are exemplary in their partnership with Acuity to help ensure a safe workplace.
Acuity Insurance, based in Sheboygan, Wisc., calls RADCO part of a “very select group, with less than four percent of our manufacturing accounts receiving an award.”
Indeed, RADCO strives to make consistent, measurable progress in implementing the highest overall safety for our employees.
RADCO’s facility manager, Jeni Luebeck, summarized the company’s philosophy on safety: “We believe that all injuries and occupational illnesses, as well as safety and environmental incidents, are preventable. We feel the engagement and input of all our employees is the key to awareness and maintaining the safest environment. We are subject to bi-annual safety and compliance audits and are very proud of our employees and our overall achievements.”
RADCO conducts comprehensive health and safety training for all employees at the time of hire and periodically thereafter. The Health & Safety committee consists of a rotating group of employees that meet on a quarterly basis.
