Leading supply, maintenance and logistics partner for the rail industry has opened a new facility in Scunthorpe, and welcomed several new team members.
The new rail-linked facility is designed to provide wagon maintenance, overhaul, repair, and modifications for the rail industry, which will enable the team to continue to provide dedicated client service within the region.
Nick Andrew, managing director at CWE, said: ‘This facility marks an exciting next step in CWE’s growth ambitions. It will enable us to expand our Centre of Excellence for Rail – which we established earlier this year – by supporting our customers on major refurbishment projects for multiple wagons and components.
“All our facilities operate to the highest standards, helping our customers keep their rolling stock on the tracks for longer.”
The facility is just one aspect of CWE’s dedication to investing in the region, alongside other efforts such as apprenticeship and training partnerships with both Doncaster Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Lincolnshire Careers Hub, as well as a range of local sponsorships and charity events.
The company has also welcomed several new team members, with the recruitment of a new finance manager, finance director, commercial manager, operations manager, and admin assistant to drive CWE into the future.
This latest news follows a brand refresh in 2021, and several significant customer wins for CWE. It is now the partner of choice for all freight buffers for the main players in the rail sector and is the only independent buffer and coupler overhauler in the UK.
