Production facilities

Based on a 4.25 hectare site at Langwith Junction the site is connected to the rail system and within 6 miles of the M1 motorway in the north midlands. The site has its own rail sidings which can accommodate approximately 65 bogie wagons. There are storage and handling facilities for 300 TEU of container or swap bodies. The factory has a workshop area of 7500M2 which has 9 overhead cranes with capacities up to 30 tonne. The main workshop facilities have a rail connection to the sidings.

Material preparation includes guillotines, saws, profiling, pressing and forming up to 300 tonnes. This enables most steel and stainless steel components to be fully prepared including if necessary shotblasting and priming prior to sub assembly fabrication. Two main assembly halls can be prepared for any batch production of the largest rail wagon or swap body.

Automatic or manual shotblast is available for preparation of the finished fabricated assemblies prior to painting. Another hall is used for fitting marking and testing of rail wagons which can also be used for maintenance and repair work. There is a test rig for testing containers and swap bodies to ISO and EN requirements. Our current work force of approximately 120 embraces a complete range of skills, in a local area with many engineering companies where expansion to achieve production targets is always possible.
