Compliance Label Service is a division of Productivity by RFID, LLC, a CCR-registered small business founded in 2003 by Robert Steinberg. In 2003, both Wal-Mart and the DoD had announced RFID mandates for suppliers. While most RFID start-ups focused on the top 100 Wal-Mart suppliers, Steinberg and the Board of Productivity by RFID (PbR), focused on DoD suppliers. Board member Colonel William Herbert, USAF (ret), a former Deputy Chief of the Defense Logistics Agency, provided invaluable guidance. Board members, Lenny Landau and Jay Celesti, retired executives of GE Aerospace, contributed to PbR’s passion for execution and customer service. Board member Harvey Steinberg raised the capital to fund the start up.

After PbR presented several widely acclaimed RFID seminars for DoD suppliers, the National Defense Industrial Association (NDIA) selected PbR to create and run a seminar series in cities across the US for NDIA members. Feedback gained from interactions with hundreds of DoD suppliers, coupled with the ingenuity of Board member Joseph Blake, a pioneer of the barcode industry, resulted in the birth of EXPEDITER™. In 2007, all DoD-related activities of Productivity by RFID were placed under the Compliance Label Service name which evolved into today’s full-service compliance company serving DoD and GSA suppliers across the US, Canada, Europe and the Middle East.


Prior to founding Productivity by RFID in 2003, Rob Steinberg spent nine years leading growth initiatives at Avery Dennison, a Fortune 500 label and systems company. Rob became involved with RFID while leading the marketing effort of a multi-division team assessing needs for inventory tracking, anti-diversion, anti-theft, homeland security, brand protection and rebate fraud. He also founded and led a new division to develop, manufacture, and sell printed electronic displays. His division was showcased to Wall Street on two occasions. Rob holds two patents: one in RFID systems for tracking, displaying, and storing inventories of small retail items; the other in electrochromic displays. Rob has two engineering degrees and an MBA from M.I.T. When not reading Military Standards, Rob enjoys outdoor activities and tennis with his fiancé Jo-Ann, his two daughters both recent college graduates, and his faithful companion of 14 years, Cinnamon, a yellow Labrador Retriever.
