Gulf Atlantic Industrial Equipment, a leading bulk material handling, processing, storage, and mixing technology equipment dealer, is now “Master Parts Distributor” as named by Rapid International Ltd.

Specializing in the distribution of Rapidmix continuous mixing plant replacement parts, Gulf Atlantic will serve Rapid customers in the U.S., Canada, and Central America. This change comes one month after Rapid International Ltd. – a prominent manufacturer of mobile continuous mixing equipment for concrete, construction, and environmental sectors – announced the retirement of its Colorado-based sales partners at Rapid International USA.

“Gulf Atlantic’s partnership with Rapid began 15 years ago when we became an authorized dealer for Rapidmix continuous mixing plants,” said Bobby Carroll, vice president at Gulf Atlantic Industrial Equipment. “We’ve been in the industrial equipment business for 25 years. When Rapid presented us with the opportunity to take on parts distribution, we knew it was the right move for our customers.”

In addition to selling and renting new and used Rapidmix plants, Gulf Atlantic is increasing their Rapidmix parts inventory to meet the needs of all Rapidmix customers and dealers in the U.S., Canada, and Central America. Specially trained parts specialists are assisting customers with orders and technical support – and as always – excellent customer service and fast shipping remain a priority.

“We’re delighted Gulf Atlantic has taken on the role and responsibility of Master Parts Distributor for our U.S., Canada, and Central America territories,” said Jarlath Gilmore, sales and marketing director at Rapid International. “They have the right experience in key areas as well as the facilities and resources to quickly ship products, strengthen sales, and provide timely technical support.”

Growth in roller compacted concrete, cement treated base, and soil remediation projects has led to a steady increase in the use of continuous mixing technology. As Rapidmix plant sales climb and more plants are put into operation, regional access to replacement parts and technical support becomes progressively more important.

“Gulf Atlantic has the experience and resources needed to grow as construction industries strengthen and mixing technologies continue to develop,” said Dennis Bauer, former president and owner of Rapid International USA. “They’re an integral part of the Rapid team. It’s comforting to know the future of the business is in good hands.”

Gulf Atlantic Industrial Equipment is the exclusive Rapid International dealer for new Rapidmix continuous mixing plants and rentals in Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. As the Master Parts Distributor, they will sell and ship Rapidmix parts throughout the U.S., Canada, and Central America.
