Rapid nominated in two categories at Elektra Awards
Rapid is delighted to have been shortlisted twice at the Elektra 2019 awards, the "Oscars" of the electronics industry.
The company features in both the Distributor of the Year and the Educational Support Award categories.
"It is another great achievement for us to be nominated in this year's Elektras", said James Bates, Rapid's Managing Director. "We are committed to becoming the very best distributor that we can be, dedicated to helping every kind of customer achieve their ambitions. Over the last year we have focused on achieving the edge that adds value
- whether that be bespoke product or manufacturing-based services, developing closer ties between account managers and customers, or giving customers more control and flexibility over their stock requirements."
"We understand that every facet of our business plays a role in this: from the accuracy of the picking in our warehouse to the responsiveness of our online functionality – with our goal to create a “floor to door” customer experience that is the best in the electronics distribution industry, " said Mr Bates. "We place huge importance on taking ideas and feedback from customers about how we can improve and have the ability to implement change quickly. For example, our new live lead times and real time stock information on our website has made a huge difference to order conversions and our internal efficiencies."
Now in their 17th year, the Elektra Awards recognise technical, personal and business achievements within electronics. Other categories include Design Team of the Year, Manufacturer of the Year and LED Lighting Product of the Year.
The Elektras take place at the Grosvenor House Hotel in London on 4 December.
