AET Passes Key Rail Accreditation
March 17, 2020
Advanced Engineering Techniques Ltd is delighted to announce
that it has successfully passed accreditation for the Rail Industry Supplier Qualification
Scheme (RISQS) operated by the Rail Safety and Standards Board (RSSB)
The RISQS scheme was set up by RSSB to be a central portal
for all buyers in the rail industry seeking approved suppliers and contractors.
It helps all suppliers sell into the GB rail industry by providing an open,
fair and transparent way for them to be formally recognised as capable
providers of products and services.
The move further strengthens AET’s standing in the rail
sector and demonstrates its willingness undergo rigorous auditing to secure
relevant industry body awards.
Senior Estimator, Phil Dodds, who led the accreditation
process said ‘This is an important step in AETs long term strategy to become a
leading supplier in the UK and European rail sector which is forecast for
unprecedent growth over the next 10 years. Rail is a key market for us as we
begin to witness a resurgent rail freight sector. Economies are moving towards sustainable
and low carbon footprint transport systems and being part of this scheme
further strengthens our foothold in the marketplace.’
