FOCUS

CEO

CHRIS BADENHORST

After little over 1 year as an Area Manager in the marketing department of John Deere South Africa’s head office, Chris started out in his own business in 1991 as one of the first Dealers for Karcher cleaning equipment.

After being trained by various German product specialists and gaining clients out of the Blue Chip Companies of industry, Chris’ business, Karcher Centre East Rand, became one of the top 3 Karcher dealers in South Africa.

As the focus on the environment began to increase globally during the 1990’s, these multi-national clients soon began asking for environmental cleaning solutions.

In 1994 Chris formed a separate business and began to translate his industrial cleaning experience into environmental cleaning, as well as specialised industrial cleaning. When South African environmental legislation changed in 1998, Chris was already ahead of the curve and in 2000 the Rapid Spill Response company was formed to cater for this growing market.

During the past 21 years, Chris has led Rapid Spill Response and in dealing with the cream of South Africa’s Blue Chip companies across more than nine market segments.
