Loram UK is currently aligning its business processes, brands and market strategy with those of its US parent company, enabling Loram UK to offer a larger portfolio of rail expertise to customers.

“We are delighted to have completed our acquisition of RVEL, this brings to fruition our plans to establish Loram UK as the UK’s leading provider of rail head treatment, rolling stock engineering and bespoke train operation services,” says Mr Joe Carlin, Loram vice-president of international business development and operations.

The first of three new Loram rail grinders for Network Rail will arrive in Britain later this year, and Loram UK intend to accelerate the development of Derby as a European hub as it looks to increase market share across the continent.
