The team at Rapid Facilities are very proud to announce that we have been nominated for two of the prestigious Westpac Auckland Business Awards. The awards are a great way of supporting local businesses, acknowledging innovation, growth, and success.

This is a very important award and just being nominated puts a smile on all our faces.

The awards are a recognition of outstanding achievements and work within the local community.

What do the nominations mean for us at Rapid Facilities?

We strive to be the best commercial and industrial service provider in the industry and New Zealand. Being nominated is an acknowledgement of our growth and success in the industry. We are a trusted name in everything from industrial painting, food safety cleaning, industrial cleaning, and commercial cleaning, and we are also known for our charitable efforts.

When you choose to work with us, you are also showing your support for Totara Hospice and the local community.

Our company motto is “We will do what others can’t or won’t do”. This means we work hard for our clients, at all our jobs and take on challenges.

We are humbled by the nominations, and thankful to all who have given us their support over the last few years.

Our company has grown rapidly going from strength to strength. Rapid started with just 3 staff members (our directors) 2 vans, 1 ute, and 1 water blaster. We have seen our company grow exponentially. We now have 38 staff members and numerous specialty equipment.

This is a testament to our quality workmanship, services, and team members.

Our work with Totara Hospice

It’s always good to know that a business you choose to work with also gives back to the community.

When we first created Rapid Facility Services, we knew that we wanted to be the kind of business that gives back and is involved in the local community. We knew the best way to do this was to help out a charity. Giving back to the community has always been one of our goals.

We support Totara Hospice, by offering general repair and maintenance services once a month. Our team truly enjoys helping at Totara Hospice, it is rewarding and shows our appreciation of what they do for the community and families.
