Rapid re-enter truck mixer market with the launch of Rapid Tumbler.
Rapid International Ltd has re-entered the concrete truck mixer market with the launch of their sister company Rapid Tumbler – suppliers of premium lightweight truck mixers.
Rapid Tumbler’s first product to market is the RTM89 8m3 capacity truck mixer. The mixer’s quality engineered 8m3 mixing drum is manufactured using long life, high strength, Arcelor Mittal steel. The truck mixers feature premium components from Bosch Rexroth, Arcelor Mittal and ZF Germany. The range is set to be expanded in 2020 to include other size options.
The official launch of Rapid Tumbler took place in December 2019 at an open morning at Rapid’s headquarters in Tandragee, County Armagh. The event was attended by many local and national readymix concrete companies, as well as members of the Mineral Products Association Northern Ireland (MPANI).
Attendees had the opportunity to view the new 8m3 capacity truck mixer and meet with representatives from Mercedes, Volvo, Scania and DAF truck manufacturers. The morning was concluded with a factory tour and a light breakfast.
Mark Lappin, Managing Director – Rapid International Ltd, commented, “We’re delighted to re-enter the truck mixer market through the launch of our new sister company, Rapid Tumbler. Having celebrated our 50th anniversary last year, it seems fitting to re-introduce one of Rapid’s original iconic products.”
