Wabtec Rail has worked with Angel Trains on many projects over the last ten years from major refurbishment to regular maintenance work.
We have always enjoyed a healthy (and at times challenging) relationship whereby Angel Trains set high targets to meet their procurement objectives. The openness that Angel Trains brings, plus the challenges they set, have allowed Wabtec Rail to grow and develop its own strengths to ensure we meet the challenges set by Angel Trains. We hope to continue this positive relationship for the very long term.
Chris Weatherall, Managing Director
Bombardier is proud to have been
associated with Angel Trains over
many years and has carried out
significant amounts of maintenance
on Angel Trains' rolling stock.
This relationship has developed significantly on the Class 317
retraction and refresh project, where a collaborative approach to
project execution and product development has been adopted and
is contributing enormously to the success of the project.
Des McKeon, Commercial Director
Merseyrail and Angel Trains have enjoyed a professional and productive relationship over many years.
A proven track record of working in partnership to improve the performance and presentation of the Merseyrail fleet for our customers, the Angel Trains' support team are accessible at all times and work closely with us on the challenges of managing and maintaining an older fleet like ours. Our relationship could be described as based on honesty with a mutual understanding of each other's business needs. This has been demonstrated through recent negotiations over the fleet lease extension where agreement has been successfully reached to the satisfaction of all stakeholders.
Mike Roe, Engineering Director at Merseyrail.
We have leased rolling stock from Angel Trains for a number of years and find them knowledgeable, professional and easy to do business with.
More recently we have begun to work closely with their Engineering and Account teams to come up with innovative solutions to help improve the performance and reliability of the Class 357/2 fleet. We value the technical expertise that Angel Trains brings to the relationship. Angel Trains is prepared to invest in improving the condition and reliability of its assets, and we are planning to undertake joint trials of further initiatives which, if successful, will help us to provide an even better service to our passengers.
