Vital Rail, part of the Vital Services Group, has reopened a regional office in York to cope with growth in the rail sector.
Increased orders from clients in the area are behind the development.
Says Nick Baxter, Regional Director of Vital Rail North, ‘Despite the cost reductions which are flowing through the industry following the publication of the McNulty report, we have actually seen quite a strong and steady increase in work recently.
‘We put this down to a combination of the rail contractors further reducing their supply chains – for which we have retained our preferred supplier status and the increased demand for our contracting services under which we deliver fixed price packages of work.’
Vital Rail’s York business is run by Steve Carter, northern operations manager, whilst the office is run by resource manager, Emma Barnes, a native of Haxby, north of York.
The office will complement Vital Rail’s existing offices in Aberdeen, Glasgow, Manchester, London, Warwick and Swindon.
