Notice to our AeroTech/Quest Distributors, Dealers, Hobby Retailers and Direct Customers
During this unsettling time surrounding the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, we would like to inform our customers that RCS Rocket Motor Components (RCS), Inc. will be operating during regular business hours and that we are committed to meeting our production schedule now and in the days to come. Many of our customer service and production staff are crossed trained, allowing our team to fill in for employees that are absent due to illness or other family-related reasons. We also have a remote work plan in place that will allow our office staff to work from the safety of their homes if necessary.

Regarding our facility, we are closely adhering to the latest World Health Organization, CDC and other state and federal recommendations to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus and making every effort to keep RCS a safe and healthy place for our employees and customers. We have implemented a more stringent protocol for cleaning frequently and commonly touched surfaces. Our goal is to keep our employees and any visiting customers or vendors as safe as possible. We are also limiting employee business and leisure travel, both international and domestic.

This is an extraordinary time for everyone. We are monitoring the changing situation daily. We are committed to maintaining our business operations and ensuring you continue to receive the highest quality products and service without disruption.

Sincerely,

Gary C. Rosenfield
President, RCS Rocket Motor Components, Inc.
