That's right, over 25 years ago, R&T Enterprises was
established in a garage size building in Kelso, Washington. The first
speaker boxes produced were for the premier speaker of the day, the good
ol' 6X9 oval speaker that sat in the package tray behind the rear seat
or just rolled around in the trunk!
Time, of course, totally changed the car stereo industry
and it evolved into the high tech, fast moving business it is today.
R&T evolved right along with it with CNC routers, computerized panel
saws, laser cutters and other technical equipment that produce the
exacting precision parts and pieces required in today's car sub woofer
In the early 1990's, R&T expanded into an additional
manufacturing facility in Kewanee, Illinois to reduce shipping times
and cost to the midwest and east coast. This addition, plus other
expansion in Washington state, brought R&T's total
manufacturing, warehousing and shipping facilities to over 100,000
square feet of floor space.
