For over 50 years, we’ve been on a mission to help teams and organizations develop a culture of exceptional Reliability marked by sound decision-making.
In 1967, our founder Charles J. Latino built the first Reliability Department in the country at Allied Chemical. Since then, his desire to spread his Reliability concepts has reverberated around the world.
Charles’ group resolved a debilitating operational issue threatening thousands of jobs, leading to the formation of the formal R&D Reliability Engineering group.
The Reliability Center Inc. is founded when Charles leaves Allied to help other companies develop Reliability cultures of their own.
The first version of PROACT® software is developed to streamline RCA and investigation management for global enterprises.
Bob Latino succeeds his father Charles as CEO of Reliability Center, Inc. Bob shares his father’s passion for Reliability Engineering and expands the business over the next decade by entering the healthcare market and by broadening the company’s offerings.
PROACTOnDemand® - the Cloud version of PROACT® software, wins the product of the year award from Plant Engineering Magazine.
CEO Bob Latino along with brothers Mark and Ken, complete the Fifth Edition of their best-selling book entitled, Root Cause Analysis, updated with new cases studies, best practices, and correlations to the world of Safety.
Over five decades, we’ve helped hundreds of companies do tens of thousands of RCAs.

“I find the PROACT® templates to be extremely useful in getting projects up and running. Rather than beginning from scratch, the templates make it easier to complete my analysis.”

“Metallurgists know how to 'listen' to materials to know why they failed. But a damaged part is just part of the story. PROACT® is invaluable in helping me uncover all root causes.”
