Doors open to rail industry

We are, once again, inviting friends and colleagues to see how our lifting and handling products are transformed from concept to reality.

An open day will be held at our Sheffield headquarters on March 26, to give guests a special behind the scenes tour of our bespoke manufacturing facility.

Customers, colleagues and professional partners will be attending the event, including a large delegation from Doncaster's Advanced Transport and Infrastructure National College. Our equipment is used by the college to familiarise students with the technology they are likely to encounter in rail depots.

This is the second time we have welcomed members of the industry to our premises, following the success of our 50th anniversary open day last year. We will be showcasing homegrown equipment, such as our flagship lifting jacks, new product developments and some of the third-party innovations we represent in the UK and Ireland, including the Zwiehoff electric shunter, the CALIPRI laser wheel measurer and Blaschke fume extraction.

Alongside our inhouse team, key staff from parent company, CIM and sister company, Sogema, will be on hand to answer delegates' questions. A representative from Railway Children, Mechan's charity of the year, will also be attending, whilst neighbouring rail safety specialist, Zonegreen, will also be showcasing its depot protection equipment.

We are really looking forward to meeting this year's invitees and demonstrating our capabilities!

For more information about attending our open day, telephone (0114) 257 0563, or email us.
