Research Data began in 1996 as a result of the landmark twins study conducted by the Medical College of Virginia (now known as the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center). RDI was contracted to perform the outgoing survey work and data collection for the study. This experience led to more survey projects and the logical progression towards data management, database marketing work, and most recently, our eDiscovery division which serves the law firm, government agency, and corporate counsel environments.

RDI’s first facility operated inside the manufacturing plant of Lewis Creative Technologies, a Richmond, Virginia-based commercial printing firm. Lewis Creative Technologies evolved from Lewis Printing Company, which was founded in Richmond in 1922, and has been in continuous operation ever since.

The tremendous growth of our business over the past twenty years has been a result of continuously improving our capabilities, making timely and intelligent investments in technology, and recruiting the very best associates available. Today, RDI is one of the fastest growing, and most respected data management and direct marketing companies in the Mid-Atlantic region.

In September of 2006, RDI moved into a spacious, modern, and secure 85,000 square foot facility near the Richmond International Raceway complex. Our ongoing partnership with Lewis Creative Technologies gives us direct access to the latest full-color digital printing capabilities, as well as LCT’s robust and efficient bindery and mailing operations.

RDI is proud of its history, but we also look forward to the challenges and opportunities of the future.
