Corporate Vision March 2017

12 CORPORATE VISION / March 2017 , Total Rail Solutions (TRS) is the UK’s leading provider of fullymanaged safety critical rail plant services. We explore the secrets behind the firm’s success. Leading the Way in Rail Solutions Formed in 2006 TRS started life as a consultancy business but by mid-2008 its senior team set about developing the Company into other markets within the rail industry. Paying particular attention to the operated plant market and with the core of its management team being drawn from people with a strong and successful track record in this field were central to the firm’s early approach. Upon the award of its own Rail Plant Operating Company Licence (POL) the firm has embarked on a major investment programme which has seen it invest in excess of £7M in a new fleet of next generation rail plant and attachments, and at present they operate 65 RRVs with a further 10 due by June 2018. Since then Total Rail Solutions has supported and supplied some fifty-five construction and civil engineering companies on most of the major projects on the UK rail infrastructure. This spread of service has seen the business grow steadily from a £200k turnover in 2007-2008 to a current turnover of more than £25 million pounds per annum. Offering the full range of plant solutions from concept to delivery TRS are able to supply all the resources its clients need in one location. These services include rail plant solutions and services; on track plant planning, delivery and site management; permanent way maintenance services, rail infrastructure civil’s services; rail labour solutions as well as collaboration/ partnership.
