COOMBES appoints rail duo to support civils expansion

COOMBES has appointed Huw Abbey and Paul Fendt to head up its rail civils team, as the company looks to strengthen its expanding civils business.

Joining from Network Rail, both Huw and Paul bring a wealth of experience and expertise from a variety of roles, working within the rail sector, including buildings and civils.

These appointments will strengthen COOMBES’ existing civils team, which already carries out minor works through existing contracts, including Network Rail’s CEFA framework.


Shane Coombes, Managing Director at COOMBES, said: “We are delighted to welcome both Huw and Paul to their new roles. We see construction and civils as real areas of growth for us. By appointing Huw and Paul we strengthen and enhance our offering, which will help us continue to expand and grow over the coming years.”

Huw Abbey, Head of Rail Civils, said: “It’s an exciting time to be joining COOMBES, and there are some great opportunities ahead, I am looking forward to helping the business grow.”

Paul Fendt, Senior Project Manager, said: “I am thrilled to be joining COOMBES as it looks to consolidate its position and grow. I am looking forward to helping develop the COOMBES offering and creating further value for our clients.”
