Mark Rowston - Ultimate Bar Hire
Can’t thank all the team at RAPID enough for their professionalism and tireless efforts. If it wasn’t for their creative solution, our one of kind shipping container bar would have never been a success!
Ian Cartwright - Overall Forge Pty Ltd
Prior to installing new equipment in March 2011, we decided to outsource the installation of new hydraulics for our Press and Manipulator. The hydraulics is quite complex and we did not have the expertise to install nor maintain. We commissioned Rapid Hydraulics to assist with the installation and commissioning. During this installation and commissioning Rapid Hydraulics displayed a high level of expertise, which streamlined the installation from qualified technicians and modern test equipment.
Since March 2011 Rapid Hydraulics has provided us with a prompt service with the diagnosis of the fault and carried out the necessary repairs and replacements of components. This has saved us in considerable downtime costs, with the operation of our equipment. The investment of outsourcing to maintain our equipment has been a real cost saving exercise and has allowed us to utilise our staff in other areas of preventative maintenance.
Kevin Molkentin - Norske Skog Albury
I would like to briefly detail Rapids business and their effect on our business.
Prior to Rapids commencement some years back our Albury Mill relied heavily on suppliers in Melbourne & Sydney for repairs & equipment supply covering everything from hydraulics/pneumatics to specialist mechanical drives such as Rexroth, Hugglunds etc. This translated to higher costs all round due to delays in response timing, higher city prices, increased risk due to equipment repair duration and or simply not having that local expertise for correct fault diagnosis.
Rapids team are highly skilled & capable, available 24/7, have a fully equipped workshop including many mobile workshops. Their experience and knowledge have proven itself time and time again in fast fault diagnosis & repairs. Add to this Rapids safety focus and you have a business that are very capable, pleasant and efficient to deal with and have certainly saved our mill many thousands of dollars since their inception.
