Showcasing the Best of Welsh Business


Carmarthenshire ICT Company Prepares to Grow Rapidly


Local company Rapid IT Group Ltd has gone from strength to strength after winning last years’ Beacon Bursary,.

The company is located in The Beacon Centre for Enterprise in Dafen as part of its award of the Bursary. This support has allowed the business to establish itself securely in the marketplace.

Rapid IT™ offers a variety of specialist IT & Telephony services including infrastructure monitoring, network installations, IP telephony installations, licensing and managed IT Services.

It has also successfully designed and built an ‘early warning’ system that detects when a system’s performance falls beneath its threshold and in the last seconds before failure its technology can intercept the fault before it occurs and reduce the business impact of a system failure.

Commercial Director of Rapid IT™ John Hennah, who is currently finishing his final year at the University of Wales Trinity St. David, stated:

“We are an ambitious and customer focused company and due to the demand for our cloud based phone systems for the SME market, it is our intention to offer our services throughout the UK.

“We are hoping to rapidly expand and employ skilled jobs and take on modern apprenticeships in the near future”.
