We know rail infrastructure.

Whether you’re a turn-key contractor or a specialist installer, we have a service that can help you.
We understand the regulatory environment, the high standards the industry needs to achieve, and with a strong emphasis on safety, we can help you deliver to your customers with confidence.
That’s why we are partners to some of the world’s biggest names, and why they trust us to do what we do best, so they can focus on their own challenges.
Our experience in the industry, coupled with a desire to find solutions, means that we are always developing new approaches for our partners. Like the OLE Assembly and Logistics Service, or the Offsite Factory for Level Crossings, which both reduce the installation time and complexity for our partners trackside, as well as minimising stocking and requirements for trackside stores
We know that overhead line is a complex part of any project - whether it’s new installations, regular maintenance or a complete upgrade.
We also know that you face a host of other problems like space for stores, managing the suppliers, and simply ensuring that the right parts are where you need them, when you need them.
This is why we’ve set-up a dedicated team of Technical, Procurement, Contracts and Customer Service experts to manage your OLE requirements - start to finish. And they’ve all been trained to OLEC1 so understand not just your logistics problems, but also the technical principles of your OLE needs.
In addition, we are able to offer a range of propositions including pre-assembly of Series 2 Cantilevers, a range of OLE Materials pre-kitted to your exact project requirements.
Products are just the start of our service - but they are at the heart of it. The OLE range covers:
Our Supply Chain expertise means that we will use our existing and new relationships with suppliers to ensure that all your materials are ready for when you need them.
