Unipart Rail and Eland Cables are to play an important
role in the development of Britain’s rail infrastructure, after Unipart Rail
secured a three-year cable contract with Network Rail. The contract now in place to supply electrical cables and related services to Network
Rail involves a collaboration between two leading suppliers
in the rail industry.
The decision follows more than a decade of successful joint working between
cable distributor Eland Cables and engineering and logistics provider
Unipart Rail, most notably on the West Coast Route Modernisation (WCRM)
With Network Rail framework supplier status, rail customers can benefit from
competitive pricing, guaranteed stockholding and immediate availability on a
huge range of rail cables and accessories,¬ including rail signalling cables
and rail telecoms cables.
Eland Cables and Unipart Rail’s latest move serves to reinforce what is
already a strong working relationship between the two companies. In a joint
statement, managing directors Philip Brown and Graham Jackson said: “The
decision to collaborate over the Network Rail bid was not a difficult one to
make. By combining Eland Cables’ supplier relationships, technical knowledge
and sourcing expertise with Unipart’s logistics and materials management
experience, we can give rail customers more choice and even more competitive
prices, while continuing to deliver fast turnaround times and a
consistently high level of service.”
