Rapid Response Solutions was formed in June 2000 to provide a complete turnkey solution for lifting, moving and transportation projects.

Our services include: transport, contract lifting, rigging, storage, containers, sales and hire of equipment, load monitoring and training at NVQ level.

Our goal is to stay small enough to maintain the personal relationships we have with clients and large enough to meet the demands of the global industry. All while staying true to our simple philosophy that you earn success by being honest, treating people well and operating with integrity – and of course building the best product possible.

Plans for 2018:

Off-the-shelf skidding systems and rigging equipment has not been readily available in some of the developing parts of the world, so we see an opportunity to supply a global market demand.

For example, we have quite a few clients in Africa and other developing countries, where our systems are replacing archaic methods of moving these items, like rollers or moving items using manpower in very unsafe ways.

Latest innovation:

JLS250 Jacking Load Shoes – load-compensating skid shoes designed to work with Hydra-Slide’s HT300 or HT500 skidding system track providing exceptional overall load capacity.

What does it mean to be recognised by A-Plant?

It was an unexpected honour to be recognised by the industry we aim to serve!

We are thrilled to accept an award and will do our absolute best to merit this recognition.
