Recognising The Stars Of Our Industry - We're finalists!

by Rapid Welding 3. February 2016 12:33


It is with our greatest delight that I can confirm Rapid Welding has made it to the FINAL of the 2016 Welding World Awards. 

The first of their kind, the Welding World Awards are an international, impartial, independent awards open to anyone involved in the welding business, aiming to showcase "everything that is excellent within our industry.", and to recognise and applaud the stars of our trade (See Rapid Blog 11th Dec 2015).

We are thrilled and proud to have been nominated for no less than FIVE awards by our customers, and that Rapid's brilliant team and hard work is being recognised by so many, and on such a public platform! We also want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who took the time to log on and vote for us, it really means a lot and has driven us through what has been a tough and heavily contested process.  

Following the public voting, the next stage was to wow a panel of judges with a presentation on why we were nominated for each of the five categories. This task was undertaken by Roy and Marianne Edwards, and it seems as though they managed to catch the judges attention. The main feedback following the presentation was, "The panel were thoroughly impressed with your enthusiasm and passion for the industry, and found your presentation interesting and extremely informative." 

Well, passion and enthusiasm has always been the Rapid way!

So we've done all we can. The judges decision is final.

All that's left is to attend the glittering Welding World Awards Gala Dinner being held during the week of MACH 2016 (The UK'S premier manufacturing Technologies event). The evening is to be hosted by TV presenter, the Rt. Hon. Michael Portillo, and the overall winner for each award will be announced.

 Be sure to look out for the list of Finalists in the next edition of Welding World magazine. The overall winners will be recognised on the welding world website following the event.  

Fingers crossed and wish us luck.

MACH 2014 - Are You Ready!

by Rapid Welding 20. February 2014 09:33

I can't believe two whole years have past since our first exhibition at MACH - which also happened to be Rapid's first exhibition EVER! And once more, this coming April, we're at it again in Birmingham, only this year we're bigger and better than ever.

2014 started with a bit of bang for the Rapid team, and if you follow our blog you'll already know why. First there was the new addition of Rapid Marine back in 2013, then came the great news that Rapid was increasing yet again with the acquisiton of Bryant Welderental. Things have been going great guns, and we can't wait to get to MACH this year to spread the word about the services our ever expanding family now offers.


Come and meet our representatives from Rapid

MACH is the 'UK’s largest event for Manufacturing Technologies', showcasing the advancements made in the manufacturing industry. With 20,000 visitors from the UK and overseas anticipated, and with over 500 exhibitors, not to mention an insightful seminar programme running throughout the week, the five day event is sure to be an exciting, busy and worthwhile time for everyone.

Once more, the Rapid stand will be sited in the Welding World Village, which is hosted by the AWD (Association of Welding Distribution) - the team will be on stand 4921e. There's a write up and site plan of the Welding World Village in the February edition of Welding World Magazine out now, and don't forget to look out for further updates about which products we'll be featuring during the week.


 See you there!
