Road Rail Cranes

Personal Trackside Safety -  Rail Training Division

Our newly established training division is based in Wrexham, meaning it is close to local amenities and road links.  Eamonn McLoughlin joined the team as our Training manager in mid 2016, and comes to us with many years of experience in the Rail and Construction industry; having worked on the Manchester Metro Link Project, Stafford Alliance project and Network Construction Services.  

The Training Centre is a welcoming venue with modern facilities throughout. The Training suites are serviced by large screens and are well ventilated.  Trianing is available 7 days a week.
