A rail firm is on track for success after relocating to larger premises in Doncaster.

Rail vehicle engineering consultancy firm T&RS Engineering has moved to a new base at Gresley House on Ten Pound Walk following a period of growth which has seen it take on new contracts and additional staff.

The firm has moved into the new 700 sq ft premises from its former base at Woodfield Business Centre and is aiming for further expansion in 2015.

Established in 1999, the company provides engineering consultancy services to the rail industry with Grand Central, Scot Rail, Bombardier, Alstom and First Hull Trains among its clients.

Director Richard Poulton was keen that the company remained true to the town’s railway roots by remaining in Doncaster, widely acknowledged as one of the most historically significant northern towns in the history of the rail industry, as well as being the birthplace of both The Flying Scotsman and Mallard.

He said: “Doncaster was, and still is, an important engineering and maintenance hub for the rail industry so the decision to remain local was obvious. Gresley House ticked all of the boxes. We now have the space to take on additional staff as we look towards new contracts and further growth.”
