WH Davis Group drives Turnkey revolution
A lot has changed on the railway in the last 100 years, but WH Davis Group’s role is as important as ever. Both sides of the business — WH Davis and David Wagon Services — continue to lead the way in innovation and service.
WH Davis, which is now the only independent freight wagon manufacturer in the UK, continually evolves its processes as the industry moves toward digitisation — recently creating a bespoke ‘supersized’, fully automated, covered hopper wagon specially designed for the transport of biomass, with a 30% increase in capacity of anything previously seen on the UK network.
Meanwhile, Davis Wagon Services is widely recognised as the industry leader for the repair and maintenance of rail wagons — with nine outstations strategically positioned throughout the UK to provide maintenance and repairs to its customers’ fleets and vehicles.
With both companies aligned and working together, WH Davis Group can provide that full turnkey offering for the rail wagon’s lifecycle. Or as Les Bryant, Engineering Director of WH Davis Group, puts it: “As an organisation, we have that unique ability to be able to offer a one-stop solution to the rail freight industry being able not just to build, but maintain the vehicle for its entire life."
