The philosophy behind Rapid Office is to offer the highest quality of service and competitive price structures, combined with efficient after sales service.

This philosophy must be balanced with being a profitable organisation. It is only the continual profitability that enables Rapid Office to be a stable company, and it is only a stable company that can guarantee a long-term professional approach.

The re-investment of the profit in staff, stock and training has been vital in Rapid Office continual growth pattern. We value long-term relationships with our clients and suppliers, offering the highest quality of service in office furniture, which naturally leads to repeated business.

It has always been our view that we have to be flexible towards the needs and requirements of our clients and never say no to a request without first exploring whether it is feasible to achieve.

Company History

Our directors started working together in the early 70’s and on 1st January 1980 saw the first trading day for us. Our first office was situated in Hornchurch, Essex and the company has achieved a highly successful growth pattern since then. This has enabled us to maintain our high standards of service by increasing the administration, delivery and installation team in accordance with the growth of the business. In 1987, we acquired the freehold of our existing building, highlighting the policy of re-investment of profits. Further investment saw us undertake a complete refurbishment of our office environment to offer a high quality office and distribution facility for our clients and team. Rapid Office has enjoyed continued growth and is now ideally placed to offer a comprehensive service from a financially stable and successful company.


Over the years we have established relationships with manufacturers covering all areas of office furniture Essex, from reception areas to built in storage options. We are constantly appraising the market to ensure that we have the very latest solutions and technology for our clients. As we are not limited to one manufacturer or range we are able to look at each individual requirement and advise accordingly, dependant on the budget, the application and time available for the completion of the installation.

Woodland Carbon Code

At Rapid Office we take the environment very seriously and anything that we can do to reduce our CO2 emissions takes a high priority. This is why we have decided to invest in the creation of new woodlands in the UK through the Woodland Carbon Code which will provide significant environmental and social benefits in the area. Furthermore, these woodlands are certified to ISO standards under the UK government Woodland Carbon Code and meet international environmental and carbon project rules.
