Oscarsof the electronics industry.
Despite the challenges of the global pandemic, electronics companies worldwide have been busy creating game-changing technologies that are helping to shape the future of the industry. These incredible achievements deserve to be recognised, especially in the light of the unprecedented situation we are all living through.
This is the third time in four years that we have been nominated in the Elektras, a great achievement, said James Bates, Rapid's Managing Director.
It has been an incredibly challenging year for every UK business. All the plans we had at the start of 2020 were quickly ripped up last March. Our main strategy became, like so many others, to ensure we continued to operate, to protect our employees and to support our customers and suppliers as best we could. That we were able to do this efficiently says a great deal about our flexibility as a business and the skills of our staff.
We were also very proud to be able to help supply components to several Covid-related health tech projects, and to donate materials in the initial PPE shortage, said Mr Bates.
The response we got from the 6-Week Challenge was phenomenal, says Jennifer King, Rapid’s Product Manager for Education.
While this can never fully replace the work we would have done in our workshops, school visits and other site-based challenges, it helped tick students’ brains over and may have nurtured a budding engineer or two.
