Scott Harrison is new COO at Permaquip

Scott Harrison has joined railway equipment manufacturer Permaquip as chief operating officer. He will be based in the Stanton Hill office where he will be overseeing the manufacturing facility, as well as development within the organisation and its global outlets.

Previously group development director at Aspin, Scott has extensive manufacturing experience following a three-year stint with SPX Flow, where he oversaw manufacture of rail products internationally as EMEA commercial director.

With 50 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of innovative rail products, including trolleys, stressing kits and personnel carriers, the Permaquip name is synonymous with quality and reliability across the rail industry worldwide.

“I am delighted to join a company who I have known so well, for so long. I have always had a very good relationship with Permaquip, working closely with them during my time at Network Rail especially, and am delighted to be leading this professional and expert team,” said Scott.

“We will continue to work hard to ensure that we deliver the very best equipment to our customers, and there are plenty of exciting and innovative new products on the horizon!”
