Woolbro (Distribution) Ltd is part of the Rapide International Ltd Group which was founded in 2009. Woolbro was originally a family run business formed in 1964.

In 2007 Woolbro purchased Rapide Products, a company specialising in DIY and Automotive chemical consumables. This has proved to be a major factor in the success of the current company set up who are now operating out of a 120,000sq’ distribution centre and showroom in Bradford with overseas showrooms in China and Hong Kong.

Rapide Products has quickly become one of the UK’s largest importers of quality products at discount rates.
