Rail Forum to Host Supply Chain Engagement Events

The Rail Forum have launched two new supply chain engagement events for February 2022.

The first event will be an Introduction to the New Wabtec UK to be held on 23 February from 10.00am at Pride Park Stadium, Derby. Wabtec is currently going through a significant change here in the UK, and this event will give an update on the new Wabtec UK, their global product and service offerings and their new product line structure. There will also be an opportunity to speak with the Senior team members in the form of a networking session.

Andy Derbyshire, Group Managing Director and Vice President UK & Ireland comments: “We are excited to present to you the new Wabtec UK. The changes have simplified and strengthened our structure with a focus on our core capabilities including an extensive range of high added-value components, systems and services. All are designed to help our customers build and operate trains that are safe, reliable and cost-efficient throughout their life cycle”.

The second event is a Hitachi-Alstom High Speed Supplier Engagement Conference, to be held on 28 February from 10.00am at Pride Park Stadium, Derby. The conference will include a series of presentations from both organisations on their current and future plans with specific reference to HS2. There will also be ample opportunity to speak with team members during a networking session.

RFM’s CEO, Elaine Clark said “We are delighted to be hosting these two big supply chain events as part of our 2022 programme. These events are open to anyone in the rail industry, and we look forward to hearing updates on what their changes and future plans will mean for the wider supply chain.”
