Are you looking to work with Hitachi Rail Limited?

We have awarded all of the prime system contracts for the Class 800/801 series trains which you will see on the downloads below. This has taken us to an exciting point in the project. The first systems have now all been delivered and we are actively moving within the test programme for the trains entering service.


Our factory in the North East of England is fully operational following it's opening in September 2015. We are now growing and developing our workforce within the factory to meet our delivery timescales for future projects.

The production of trains is well underway which means we need to focus our efforts going forward on establishing our tier-two and extended supply base in order to deliver on our exciting new additions to the UK rail network. Our procurement team are also actively reviewing future supply opportunities and looking to tap into the excellent skills and expertise that exists within our supply base globally.
