The Network Rail Plant Awards
The evening is an occasion for the rail industry to celebrate and commend the achievements of outstanding companies in the rail plant supply chain that have demonstrated excellence in the delivery of products and services to the industry.Launched four years ago, the Network Rail Plant Awards are now a major highlight of the event and offers suppliers and individuals a unique opportunity to be truly recognised against real and measured attributes of excellence. Steve Featherstone, IP Track Director at Network Rail said: “The Rail Live Event and associated Rail Plant Awards Event is a great opportunity to recognise those Tier 2 Plant Suppliers who have excelled in their support of the safe and efficient delivery of our maintenance, renewal and enhancement programmes.”
Each award category has a short list of suppliers who are nominated for having achieved a high standard of service over the last year in respect of plant performance.
