Aaron Group, rail industry specialists in civil engineering and programme management, has launched a new operations hub in Carlisle, as part of the company’s ongoing and significant expansion.
The new facility, which is based in Pacific House on Fletcher Way, enables Aaron Group to extend its service offering to organisations based across the North of England and Scotland, where a growing team will focus on developing opportunities with existing and new customers and supply chain partners.
Aaron Group offers a range of specialist solutions including electrical services, civil and rail labour, cable pulling, trackside drainage and more. The Carlisle-based team will also develop and work on a range of opportunities with the aim of securing places on some high-profile frameworks with principal contractors in the North and Scotland.
Dave Barnett, operations director for Aaron Group, said: “It is an extremely exciting time to be part of Aaron Group’s rail business, with unprecedented levels of growth leading us to expand our operations. We have been involved in some huge infrastructure projects in the last few years and we believe with our capabilities and resources we can further enhance our name in the rail and nuclear sectors.”
Aaron Rail has been involved in some high-profile rail infrastructure projects and is recognised for delivering safely and delivering well. The business received high-praise for its delivery on the multi-award-winning Ipswich Chord project, where it supplied over 3,000 person shifts to the Ipswich rail enhancements team. The company has also supplied labour for renewal and blockade projects for Network Rail and Alma Rail, receiving excellent feedback from both clients.
The new Carlisle operation complements Aaron Rail’s existing location in Stockport. The new operational hub hosts a core team of operational staff, contracts managers and admin support.
Aaron Rail will be attending the TransCityRail North Dinner on 4th October 2018. The event will be taking place at The Principal Hotel in Manchester and will feature hundreds of leaders and decision-makers from across the industry, coming together at a networking dinner.
