Paul started Rapid Response Solutions Ltd in 2000 having gained many year’s experience working for other similar businesses.
The opportunity arose to start up on his own filling a gap in the market at the time. He has continued to move the business forward by seeing the opportunities available, quality personnel and by taking on complex projects gaining a strong reputation within the lifting community.
He is a ''can do'' person who would not ask someone else to do something he either couldn’t or hadn’t done before.
He holds a HGV licence himself so understands the transport side of the business and can be seen driving the lorries on occasions.
Having already gained his own NVQ he is now qualified as an assessor.
