This blog is presented by Rapid Welding & Industrial Supplies Ltd, and here's a little bit about them in their own words:
"Rapid Welding & Industrial Supplies Ltd started trading as a welding distributor working from an industrial unit on the Portchester Park Industrial Estate, Hampshire, on 1 April 1990.
The company was set up by Mr R D Edwards, an Aircraft Approved Welder, and Mr R P Edwards, a Ministry Approved Senior Design Engineer, and is still privately owned by them. With modern offices and proper storage facilities, Rapid at its inception employed 7 people and was becoming recognised as a serious and professional welding distributor. More sales staff were soon necessary to give coverage to an expanding area and to cement Rapid's position in the south as a leading welding distributor.
Rapid Welding is committed to the welding industry and during the past ten years major manufacturers have recognised our commitment and product loyalty. Kemppi is our main franchise and our distribution area includes Hampshire, West Sussex & Dorset.
We are also distributors and stockists for Elga, Alexander Binzel, Harris, Avesta, Lincoln, Saf Oerlikon, Esab, Murex, Miller, Gullco and many others. Rapid employs at present 23 staff all with the same objectives, to supply top quality products with a back up service second to none. We have demonstrated our competence in welding distribution and aftersales to be officially appointed as agents for them all. Technical representatives are out in the field every day face to face with our customers and our delivery drivers are never static."
