Joint Celebrations with the AWD

  It's That Time Again


"The Association of Welding Distribution was created to support and promote the high professional standards of its members in dealing with customers, suppliers and competitors. Over the years the AWD has developed into the true voice of the welding industry." AWD  

A Mere Twenty Years Behind Her Majesty! 

Next month marks the AWD's (Association of Welding Distribution) annual AGM, but this year will be a joint celebration.

2013 marks the 40th Anniversary of the AWD, and with a weekend invitation to London to soak up the sights and sounds and enjoy some business, it's certainly going to be celebrated in style. The AGM, usually held in April, is an interesting, fun, and informative weekend for those who attend, and is a regular date marked on Rapid's calendar. It brings the opportunity to network with other professionals within the industry as well as enjoy the social, family orientated side of things too. For Rapid, there will be another reason to raise a glass and don our party hats at the event, because we'll be fresh from celebrating our wonderful company's 23rd Birthday, which takes place on 1st April.

We're No-one's April Fool! 

    Rapid has long since been involved with the AWD and for many years has been a member of the organisation, supporting its mission to raise the voice of welding and promote high professional standards. The AWD is committed to representing 'products and services fairly and honestly so that no one be deceived as to the nature, quality, and fitness of the products for their purpose', which fits the Rapid ethos perfectly. The association has continued to grow and develop over the years and, with good hands holding the reins, is better than ever before.

For those of you going to London, we can't wait to see you there!
