Weston-super-Mare based Rapide acquired the impressive number of 150 new customers in the first six months of 2013, despite difficult trading conditions.

Rapide supplies a wide range of office products to businesses across a variety of sectors; and ended 2012 by reporting a sales increase of 17 per cent compared to the previous year.

Rapide’s Managing Director Charles Walker comments: “This is an amazing achievement, of which we are very proud. The vast majority of our new customers are based in North Somerset.

“The growth last year, and in the first six-months of this year, has encouraged us to expand into the supply of office cleaning and catering equipment.

“This includes products such as toilet paper, paper hand towels, cleaning fluids, tea, coffee and sugar; allowing us to be a one stop shop for our ever growing customer base.”

The continued growth has also seen the business employ an extra full-time delivery driver and Charles says that Rapide will be creating more jobs in the months ahead.
