Rapid Hardware Group
We are proudly Australian owned and have grown from being solely a provider of quality fencing, to being a manufacturer and supplier of a wide range of innovative hardware products to industries across the globe.
Our evolution has come from identifying opportunities and gaps in the market in our specialty area of quality manufactured steel, then striving to provide our customers with innovative, modern products long with dependable, honest service.
With a global view, we develop products in global markets that suit all climates and conditions, using our efficiencies and cost advantages across our ranges to provide our customers savings and the best possible value for money.
We pride ourselves on being a hardworking team with a strong focus on our stakeholders – our suppliers, our customers, and our employees. We are innovators, working hard to bring new products to the market that suit the Australian conditions.
We are part of the global community, with distribution centres across Australia, New Zealand and the UK, and factories and offices in South East Asia and China. We pride ourselves on ethical sourcing and production, and we give back to those communities in which we work.
Our Key People
Our Leadership team has 30+ years experience in the industrial and hardware industries, and over 30 years experience in international business.
At RHG we take ethical sourcing seriously, and consider it a cornerstone of the way we do business.
For us, ethical sourcing means adhering to the highest standards of operation in every country in which we do business, from the welfare of employees and labour standards through to operating standards and equipment.
Our core areas of concern are:
- Employment is freely chosen
- Freedom of association and the right to collective bargaining are respected
- Working conditions are safe and hygienic
- Child labour shall not be used
- Living wages are paid
- Working hours are not excessive
- No discrimination is practised
- OH&S standards are met
- Building and Equipment are certified
- Organisation is SEDEX accredited
To this end we will only work with suppliers that have had ethical audits done, or if they haven’t we will perform one for them, and then help them to comply and upskill. Only upon achieving a pass on all ethical audits will a supplier be considered by RHG.
