A Rapid History of Rapid
In 1936 Olle Westlund established Hestra Celluloid & Sportvarufabrik; the foundation of today's Rapid. Initially their products consisted of celluloid covers for maps, hair curlers and bells. The bands around the map covers were fastened by using stapling pliers made in Germany until 1942 when the German factory was bombed. This loss of supplies caused the company to start their own production of stapling pliers resulting in the launch of their first stapling plier, the Rapid 1 in 1943.
