First Bogie overhaul completed
Yellow Rail’s Bogie Overhaul facility is now fully operational, with our first overhauled bogie completed and delivered on time.
Yellow has made a considerable investment into the new Bogie Overhaul facility. This includes the recruitment of experienced and dedicated bogie overhaul staff, welders, a Service Delivery Manager, Supervisor including a dedicated Engineer.
The service is being delivered from our fully equipped workshop in the company’s new Haydock Park Road facility, employing technology to ensure an efficient process and quality product.
This Y25 freight bogie was overhauled in collaboration with VTG UK, part of the VTG group, Europe’s leading private rail wagon owner, which has recently announced its acquisition of the Nacco Group growing their existing European fleet by around 11,000 wagons.
Nigel Day, VTG UK’s Engineering Director stated “We were looking for an agile and responsive SME that can work with us to support this key part of our business. We have been very pleased with Yellow’s new facility, approach to collaborative working and early output has demonstrated good quality products.”
Andy Kevins MD said, “We continue to develop the services that our key customers are seeking inline with our culture for customer service, quality and a cost competitive offering. We are also thrilled to diversify into this important area of freight operations. The Y25 provided an excellent opportunity for us to showcase our capability to deliver, demonstrating our attention to detail, engineering capability and capacity to deliver on time.”
