Dyer Engineering has bolstered its capabilities to support product development and manufacture in the rail industry by securing the prestigious EN15085 standard.
The established North East England-based company has built on more than a decade’s experience operating in the rail sector to achieve the Class 1 accreditation, which recognises the quality of its fabrication and welding of quality and safety critical parts, including undercarriage components.
It further validates the in-house capabilities Dyer Engineering undertakes in the supply-chain for a broad portfolio of previous and current customers, which includes, among others, Cummins, Hitachi, Alstom, Bombardier, Nexus and Viva Rail.
Dyer Engineering works in collaboration with its customers throughout the complete lifecycle of the rail industry, ranging from new build parts through to refurbishment and maintenance support contracts. Among its successes in the industry was acting as a Tier 1 supplier to Hitachi for its latest design trains and supporting the Tyne & Wear Metro on a repair and refurbishment programme.
To achieve the EN15085 standard Dyer Engineering, which has two extensive fabrication facilities in Stanley, County Durham, demonstrated its dedication to stringent manufacturing and operational processes, which were audited and confirmed by The Welding Institute (TWI), which certified the company’s accreditation.
