It’s safe to say that it was the most international RailTEX, with exhibitors from China, France and Germany - to name just a few.
The current state of the global economy is a likely reason for this international attraction to the UK rail market - as well as projects such as HS2, the planned 250mph, £43bn+ network connecting London to the North of England.
Between 2014 and 2019, approximately £38bn will be spent on enhancing Britain’s rail industry - making it a hugely desirable location for long-term investment.
Around 350 exhibitors from around the world descended upon Birmingham’s National Exhibition Centre to showcase their varying products and services for the rail industries - including the likes of Alstom, Wabtec and Hitachi Rail.
Our enclosures are used for comms, UPS backup, level crossing and security, as well as cabinets for data infrastructure and signalling applications.
It was a fantastic start to RailTEX 2015, with a great response to our brand new remote electronic locking systems for outdoor cabinets. As we’re sure you’re all aware - outdoor enclosures are at risk from the atmosphere, weather and even vandalism - which is why we’re big believers in the phrase “protecting your investment.”
It was great to see other exhibitors with a similar mentality, as we’re all responsible for maintaining this enormous rail industry momentum to benefit the UK and global economies.
