From modest beginings, supplying their own range of borehole and gear pumps to the market, the two founders, Mr AJ Hindry and H Day, soon saw the gap in the market for a quality centrifugal pump. Successfully establishing themselves as leaders in the South African market, in 1952 they formed a partnership with Allweiler AG, the oldest pump company in Germany. This partnership continues to flourish today, seeing Rapid Allweiler established as a leading pump manufacturer and supplier in the South African market. Caroline Houghton, Mr Hindry’s granddaughter, took over the reigns as Managing Director in 2004.
