Believe it or not, it's not unusual for us to inform our customers that their order is 'booked to arrive on the island by Hovercraft'. 

Well, that's what can happen if you need a plasma cutter delivered to the Isle of Wight, anyway!

For some businesses it has been a challenging time recently, while for others work has continued and in some cases, boomed! For the latter, the sustained or increased demand during Lockdown has posed challenges of its own with regards to supply, particularly with some sellers being forced to close due to the pandemic. Fortunately, both Rapid and RentArc have remained open during these challenging months, with Rapid being identified as a critical supplier under the UK MOD Programme, supporting key customers. Which means we have been able to step in and respond to 'calls for help' from businesses in need of our services, enabling them to continue production.


Hydromar Ltd, based on the island, have had a very busy few months processing medically urgent components. They have very kindly mentioned us in their recent LinkedIn post after we were able to supply the plasma cutter hire they needed to continue their critical work, delivered by hovercraft no less!.
