Rapid International to invest in more facilities
First publishedon www.AggBusiness.com
Tandragee, County Armagh, Northern Ireland-based concrete and construction machinery manufacturer Rapid International has invested in a state of-the-art Hodge Clemco shot-blasting facility and Dalby paint booth.
Rapid previously sub-contracted industrial coating but spent time researching the best practice and best available techniques, with a view of making this service available in house, and it says it has now invested in this world class facility, ensuring confidence in the industrial coating provided to customers.
The new spray booth can now provide Rapid a suitable atmosphere (both in terms of temperature and humidity) for the spray painting of all items manufactured, and it also provides suitable extraction so Rapid can use polyurethane finishes on all its products.
The company says that this robust and durable finish provides good aesthetics and protection for many years, and in addition to this the eco-save mode, when not spraying reduces energy consumption.
Further benefits to the end user besides saving time and being more costs effective, enable Rapid to create customised machinery in the company's brand colours and apply the brand image when they purchase equipment.
