Rapid Start For Simon At Doncaster Fabricator

by | Sep 29, 2021 | People

Rapid PVCU Systems Limited has appointed industry veteran Simon Bingham as its new Commercial Director. The move follows the Doncaster-based company’s recent acquisition by Modular Group Investments Limited (MGI).

Rapid supplies into the new build sector and with 30 years in the window industry, specifically new build, Simon’s focus at Rapid will be to increase sales in the sector and supply major housebuilders.

“Rapid are the perfect supplier for the new build market as we understand our customers’ needs and provide a complete package,” explained Simon. “This includes expert technical advice, money saving ideas, help with design, on time and in full supply and install, and excellent aftercare. From day one I could see there was an excellent team and hugely impressive manufacturing capabilities in place.”

These manufacturing capabilities were one of the reasons MGI has invested in the 12-year-old company, which followed on from last year’s purchase of 3,000 frame per week fabricator Euramax Solutions Limited, says the company.

“Thanks to MGI and its investment, the opportunity to progress the business is huge, particularly on the modular side,” added Simon. “It will also allow Rapid to expand and develop to better serve the needs of our customers. I’m looking forward to a bright future together.”

Nick Cowley, MGI Group MD, commented: “We are delighted to have added Rapid to our Group and it’s brilliant to welcome Simon to the Rapid team; his experience will be a huge asset in helping the company expand.”
