Progress Rail Services UK Ltd is the proud sponsor of Project Manager of the Year Award 2014. The RailStaff Awards recognises the Professionalism, Innovation, Service and Excellence of individuals and companies in the rail industry.
Project Managers play such an important role in the industry. Their hard work and dedication are critical to the safe and efficient delivery of complex projects with minimum impact on the travelling public. What better way to show our appreciation for the hard work and dedication that they show, than to sponsor Project Manager of the Year Award?
Richard Coulson, Project Manager for PRS UK says, “As project managers, it is our job to be responsible for everything, ultimately the buck stops with us.”
Progress Rail UK Ltd operates across five manufacturing sites, South Queensferry, Darlington, Sheffield, Sandiacre and Beeston. As the UK’s largest manufacturer of permanent way infrastructure, we specialise in the design and manufacture of both trackwork, overhead line and signalling systems for mainline, freight, industrial and light rail customers globally.
Layouts & special projects are overseen by a team of project managers, ensuring projects are delivered on time. These managers use systems such as Q-Pulse to ensure ISO 9001 Conformance, Document Control, Non-Conformance Records, Calibration & Audits, Axapta to control Product Configuration Management. The teams are experienced in delivering our products throughout the world. As a UK manufacturer only 5% of our total costs are imported which means 95% is sourced in the UK and 26% of our total sales are export.
Says Tim Fenemore, Managing Director, “As a Caterpillar Company we adhere to Caterpillar values, based around Integrity, Excellence, Teamwork, Commitment and Sustainability. We pride ourselves on delivering products with the help of our project management team and look forward to recognising the achievement of those working hard to keep the railway industry on track.”
