Our History

Rapid Engineering Supplies Ltd. was established in 1998, quickly building the foundations to deliver 'Service Excellence', going beyond customer expectation and adding value to our customers' business operations.  We believe Service business is local business and to that end we have expanded from our humble beginnings in Oxfordshire and have invested in local Service centres around the country, staffed by customer service orientated technical teams. The local Rapid Engineering teams work closely with our customers on anything from major Engineering projects, production cost reduction exercises to stores set-up and on-going stock management.

Furthermore and perhaps most importantly, we are geographically positioned to react effectively when you need support the most, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.   Our proven success in maintenance cost reduction and delivering industry leading service has enabled us to establish ourselves as a key engineering partner for all size businesses operating in all industries across the globe.

Our established supply chain infrastructure allows us to find you the part you need, when you need it and at the right price.
