Company Background & Milestones

Underpinned by decades of RFID experience, Vizinex RFID is the brainchild of Sandra Garby and Bob Oberle, two longtime leaders in the industry.

Oberle, Vizinex’s CTO, has developed numerous unique RFID solutions, and has been awarded 26 patents for RFID antennae and tag manufacturing, design and applications. Garby, now VP of Operations at Vizinex, led the implementation of production and quality systems that have produced millions of tags for a broad range of applications.

The pair founded RCD Technology, Vizinex’s precursor company, in 2001. After more than a decade of evolution and growth, RCD ceased operations, and its production capabilities were sold to two companies.   One of these was Vizinex, LLC. Vizinex was led by the management team at RCD, including the original founders of RCD, Sandra and Bob. Vizinex, LLC’s focus has been the field of asset tagging, where Vizinex’s rugged, high-performance tags have significant competitive advantages. RCD’s flexible antenna and tag production equipment was sold to another firm that felt they could continue RCD’s progress in that marketplace.

Vizinex, LLC has built a strong position in the RFID tag marketplace as a flexible, responsive provider of RFID solutions that meet clients’ unique requirements in a timely, cost-effective fashion. As one of the few US-based manufacturers of RFID tags, the firm provides outstanding levels of customer support and responsiveness that cannot be matched by Chinese-based competitors.   The firm provides both “off-the-shelf” and custom RFID tags – as well as RFID consulting services – for applications including IT, rental equipment, medical devices and oil field capital assets.
