WEC Group has successfully achieved EN 15085-2 accreditation for welding on rail vehicles as part of the company's long term commitment to the UK and European rail sector.
The accreditation was obtained following an audit by TWI (The Welding Institute) and will enable the Group to tender for and accept more work for the rail industry.
This follows a range of other essential quality accreditations recently achieved by the Group in order to meet the increasingly demanding industry requirements, including approval as an aluminium welding supplier to Bombardier Transportation.
WEC Group specialise in the manufacture of rolling stock metalwork such as electrical enclosures, body end cubicles, underframes and cable trays, and is also a leading force in providing design, fabrication and installation of signal structures, gantries and electrification projects (OLE & main steel).
Wayne Wild, WEC Group Commercial Director, said: "This particular accreditation was singled out last year as a strategic requirement, to allow for the manufacture of safety critical items to rolling stock OEM's and their supply chain.
"It was also recently achieved by our Coventry-based company, HTA Group, which specialise in the manufacture components for rail interiors, HVAC, chassis components and bracketry to name but a few."
With RISQS approval, WEC Group also manufacture and supply CCTV mounting products as well as providing a range of rail repair services.
