HIGH QUALITY METALWORK FOR OVER 30 YEARS!
Cambridge Rapid started in 1987 in a small unit in Saffron Walden, Essex over the last thirty years the company has expanded and at the end of 2018 was located in three interconnected units on the Shire Hill Industrial Estate.
2019 saw the company relocate to Haverhill in Suffolk, supported by Suffolk Growth Fund grant. The new factory is a single building and the company invested in both laser technology and a new folder with full offline programming. This enabled the company to substantially increase its capacity which has also allowed shorter lead times to be introduced.
The company serves many customers from a variety of industries, scientific, laboratory, furnace and motor to name just a few.
Our expert knowledge of the processing of stainless steels, means that we work in all grades including the high temperature variations.
With new technology and full offline programming, it means that components can now be processed and folded from models which allows reduced programming costs and increased accuracy as they are manufactured how they are designed.
Steve and Esther lead a multi-skilled workforce dedicated to serving its customers. Lean engineering has been introduced, along with visual management throughout the factory.
Continuous improvement in embedded in the ethos of the company and we invest not only in the technological advances that improves our customer products but also in our staff who all put our customers first. We are currently preparing for ISO 9001.
