With roots firmly established in the rail industry, DWS is recognised today as one of the UK’s leading specialists in wagon maintenance and repair.
Davis Wagon Services Limited was created in May 2007 following the acquisition by WH Davis Ltd, the UK’s last remaining wagon builder. The objective of the acquisition was to broaden the services that WH Davis could offer to the UK rail market. This objective is still pivotal in today’s market where a collective collaboration still exists, and we have achieved sustained growth and development year on year.
Our Head Office is situated in Immingham, with nine outstations strategically positioned throughout the UK to provide maintenance and repairs to our customers’ fleets of vehicles.

Drax have enjoyed a long and productive relationship with DWS who are appointed as Entity in Charge of Maintenance (“ECM”) for our fleet of 225 Biomass wagons. The professionalism shown by DWS to perform their responsibilities as ECM is vital, giving us the confidence that our wagons are maintained to the highest standard and have consistently high levels of availability. As industry experts DWS are always proactive, ensuring that our commercial interests are protected. The relationship between our companies feels more like a partnership, and it is a pleasure to work together to safely operate our wagon fleet. Having a long term contractual relationship has allowed DWS to invest in an industry leading facility at Ferrybridge to service our wagons. We are proud to be associated with this award winning facility that embodies the standards and qualities DWS pride themselves on.see more
