Recognising The Stars Of Our Industry - We're finalists!

by Rapid Welding 3. February 2016 12:33


It is with our greatest delight that I can confirm Rapid Welding has made it to the FINAL of the 2016 Welding World Awards. 

The first of their kind, the Welding World Awards are an international, impartial, independent awards open to anyone involved in the welding business, aiming to showcase "everything that is excellent within our industry.", and to recognise and applaud the stars of our trade (See Rapid Blog 11th Dec 2015).

We are thrilled and proud to have been nominated for no less than FIVE awards by our customers, and that Rapid's brilliant team and hard work is being recognised by so many, and on such a public platform! We also want to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who took the time to log on and vote for us, it really means a lot and has driven us through what has been a tough and heavily contested process.  

Following the public voting, the next stage was to wow a panel of judges with a presentation on why we were nominated for each of the five categories. This task was undertaken by Roy and Marianne Edwards, and it seems as though they managed to catch the judges attention. The main feedback following the presentation was, "The panel were thoroughly impressed with your enthusiasm and passion for the industry, and found your presentation interesting and extremely informative." 

Well, passion and enthusiasm has always been the Rapid way!

So we've done all we can. The judges decision is final.

All that's left is to attend the glittering Welding World Awards Gala Dinner being held during the week of MACH 2016 (The UK'S premier manufacturing Technologies event). The evening is to be hosted by TV presenter, the Rt. Hon. Michael Portillo, and the overall winner for each award will be announced.

 Be sure to look out for the list of Finalists in the next edition of Welding World magazine. The overall winners will be recognised on the welding world website following the event.  

Fingers crossed and wish us luck.
