Company overview

We are Howells Railway Products, a UK-based manufacturer with extensive product and system design and development expertise, offering an innovative and diverse range of manufactured products from our facility in Wythenshawe, Manchester.

The plant contains everything required to produce a full and diverse range of equipment, from component manufacture through to finished goods. And the recent addition of a new 40,000 ft. sq. CNC workshop enhances our traditional production facility, which includes hydraulics, welding, fabrication and paint shops alongside specialised product manufacture cells. This allows us to offer volume manufacture of new product alongside reverse-engineering and continued support for legacy equipment from other OEMs.
