With roots firmly established in the rail sector, we’re immensely proud of the foundations our company is built upon, and our vision for the future.

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.


We’re proud of our accredited status, ensuring all processes and procedures meet the high standards and best practices of regulatory requirements.
