Values, Why Rail Technical Services?

We Build Genuine Partnerships

Building genuine partnerships is essential for long-term success and growth, for both us and our customers. A partnership goes beyond a simple transactional relationship; it is founded on trust, mutual respect, and shared values; it involves a commitment to collaborative efforts, open communication, and a focus on achieving common goals.

We Offer a Truly Impartial Service

Our independent position across the rail industry enables us to provide our customers with a truly impartial service, fully focused on the objective at hand and nothing else. We work with all sides of the industry and firmly believe that in the services we provide we uphold the principles of objectivity and compliance.

We Work with Our Customers at Pace

Our commitment to our customers is to respond rapidly, dynamically, and effectively to provide them with the support and services they need at any point in their programme lifecycle, without compromising on quality.

Engineering is in our DNA

We have over 50 years’ experience in a broad range of technical services across the rail industry. We have a wealth of railway knowledge passed down through the generations – our engineers not only have a passion for all things railway but actively promote and support the learning and development of young engineers.

We Support and Enable our Customers

We support and enable our customers to make informed, robust engineering, business and programme decisions and we’ll support them by adding value throughout. Our customers rely on the data we collect and process for them; providing a rapid response to their many engineering challenges has been our “bread and butter” for many years.
