Greenbank Group provides engineering excellence for the rail sector from a trusted UK company
Since 1954, the Greenbank Group has built a solid reputation for excellence across a wide range of industries.
Building on extensive experience of delivering complex projects, particularly in power generation and other sectors requiring bulk materials handling equipment, and general specialist engineering solutions, it is now establishing itself as a key supplier to the rail sector.
Following a decade of unprecedented change in its traditional markets, the company took a strategic decision to look at opportunities to diversify, with an emphasis on building closer relationships and partnerships with other UK manufacturers and engineering companies.
Based near Derby, a city long associated with railway engineering, for Greenbank the rail sector was a natural focus of its efforts to explore new opportunities closer to home.
As a result, the company has built extensive links with major rail suppliers, particularly in relation to the fabrication of train, rolling stock and infrastructure components.
To facilitate this shift of focus for the Group, Greenbank has made a significant investment in achieving a globally recognised rail industry standard.
Following a thorough audit of its manufacturing facilities, Greenbank has become one of just a few UK firms to be awarded EN 15085 Manufacturers of Railway Vehicles and Components Certification Level 1.
The highly regarded certification, issued by TÜV SÜD, a Europe-wide standards body, recognises welding as a ‘Special Process’ in the manufacture of railway vehicles and their components. It sets down clear requirements on testing and documentation as well as processes and procedures to ensure the quality of welded components and the competence of employees carrying out the work.
This enabled the company to step up its engagement with other suppliers to look at ways we can work together to provide added value for operators and organisations responsible for rolling stock and infrastructure. These efforts to build relationships with other suppliers were also made possible through membership of organisations including Rail Forum Midlands and the Rail Alliance.
As a result, Greenbank is now delivering a range of fabrication and manufacturing services to a host of clients across the rail sector, including working in partnership with other suppliers.
This includes contracts to build cab assemblies for trains destined for a number of UK operators and gantry components for new infrastructure projects.
The company continues to evolve and is now looking for further opportunities to work in partnership with other key suppliers to maximise the potential offered by the Group’s extensive manufacturing facilities in Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and North Wales.
