Frederick E. Raco, Jr.

President and CEO

RNDT, Inc.

After attending the University of Pittsburgh 1982, Fred Raco Jr. went to work as an oilfield inspector trainee in Houston, where he spent three years moving up through the ranks to lead inspector and trainer.

After 20-years doing nondestructive testing for other companies, Raco returned to Johnstown and opened RNDT, Inc. with the assistance of Jimma Raco and Allan Thomassy, Jr.

RNDT currently has 35 full-time employees and provide nondestructive testing services to many industries in Pa., Ohio and W. Va.

Fred has been married for 27 years to Jimma and has two adult sons, Anthony and Frederick III. Raco’s family all reside in the greater Johnstown area.

“The Johnstown community is a hardworking and ethical society that knows how to keep going when the going gets tough. With the closing of the steel mills years ago, Johnstown has been slowly coming back through manufacturing and high-tech industries. We utilize only local people as employees because of the work ethics instilled in them from being raised in this area,” he said.
