Paint BoothTandragee 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. Rapid 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. The booth also provides suitable extraction so RAPID can use polyurethane finishes on all its products. This Robust and Durable finish provides good aesthetics and protection for many years, 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.

Rapid is proud to provide not only some of the world’s leading construction companies but also smaller concrete producers with innovative equipment solutions. Its high quality range of concrete mixers, mobile/ stationary plant and mobile continuous mixing plant offers outstandingly reliable solutions for the concrete, construction and environmental industries.

Always innovating, Rapids’ emphasis on product development is driven by the needs of its wide-reaching customer base, with a presence today in more than twenty countries worldwide. Quality, reliability and service are with upmost importance to Rapid and this additional investment ensures confidence in Rapid to continue with manufacturing excellence.
