Keltbray Aspire, part of Keltbray Group which provides overhead line electrification services on the UK’s rail infrastructure, has opened a new facility at the Dunchurch Trading Estate, Rugby.
The grade one, 20,000 square foot facility includes office space for 20 people, storage and plant maintenance workshop for Keltbray’s 40+ fleet of overhead line electrification road rail vehicles, which is looked after by 12 plant fitters.
This is a major upgrade from the company’s previous facility in Parkfield Road, also in Rugby, which the company had outgrown. Located just off the A45 London Road/Coventry Road dual carriageway, it provides easy access to the motorway network, and has a substantial yard area.
The new facility was officially opened by Keltbray Group’s CEO, Brendan Kerr, following a three month’s fit out programme.
“The new Dunchurch facility is strategically placed with regards to our work on all of the UK’s major rail infrastructure projects, in the north, south, east or west. It also meets all other requirements, and I am delighted to see how the organisation and utilisation of the site has come together and been so smoothly commissioned.
“I am delighted for the 22-strong team based on site, and grateful to them for their hard work and dedication. This facility is a great improvement and positions us well for continued growth in the rail electrification arena. It will make a great difference to the wellbeing of the team and boost our maintenance efficiency.”
