James Jacobs states, “When I started RAPID in 2001 we did something out of the industry norm: we focused strictly on prototypes. This laser focus on our core value ‘Prototypes First’ requires the team to work efficiently and get 100’s of parts out the door every day. Shipping less than 500 parts the first year, it is amazing to see how we have grown to ship our 100,000 part number in less than 15 years. A big thank you to all of our customers who have made this possible!”
