Rapids Named the 2018 MEDCO Innovator of the Year!

More than a year ago, Rapids implemented an initiative called Innovation Inspired. This initiative focused on including every member of the Rapids team, from warehouse staff to sales reps to the company owners, in segmented sessions where our only focus is bettering ourselves and the company. No idea was too small, and we were encouraged to shoot for the stars when it came to bigger changes.

Quite a few of the ideas brought to the first several meetings have been successfully implemented, and new ideas are constantly being brought to the table for consideration, as we strive to maintain the highest level of efficiency and service in today’s rapidly changing world.

As it turns out, this program inspired more than just the employees at Rapids – the people behind the MEDCO Innovator of the Year Award (presented by the Corridor Business Journal) were also impressed. Rapids was presented the 2018 MEDCO Innovator of the Year Award!

MEDCO is the Marion Economic Development Corp, an organization that focuses on creating an environment in Marion where companies can expand, attract new talent, and thrive. It is an honor to be recognized by them, and we hope to continue operating in such a way that encourages every day innovation and improvement.
