Full steam ahead for Burdens

Published:  17 April, 2015

Following a strong year of growth in the rail sector, Burdens will be returning to Railtex from 12 to 14 May to share its latest news in product developments and project expertise.

Since its attendance last year, the civils and utilities specialist has focused on growing its knowledge and experience in the sector through developing strong contractor relationships and partnerships with manufacturers. It has also continued to work with key contractors to supply materials to some of the biggest rail projects across the country such as Crossrail, Thameslink – London Bridge Station and the Borders Rail project.

A Wolseley UK company, Burdens is part of the railway industry supplier qualification scheme (RISQS), formerly the Achilles Link Up.

Martin Trivess-Smith, business development manager for rail at Burdens, said: “Our ethos is based on good communication and understanding our customers’ requirements. By consulting our varied network of manufacturers, we work to find solutions that will ensure customer projects runs smoothly.

“This, together with a comprehensive logistics service, means we can offer a great service and bespoke solutions that are tailored specifically for every customer. We’ll work to tight deadlines and navigate our way through congested sites to get goods delivered on time and in full.”

Burdens will be on stand C57 at Railtex, held at the NEC, Birmingham.
