Procurement

Share This On

We help our clients define what they need, and ensure that their requirements are delivered on budget and on time.

Our impressive procurement capability is due to our mix of engineers and commercial experts who collectively have wide-ranging experience. They are located across several regions and can work independently or together to ensure that the correct expertise is made available to any given project. An example of this flexibility is the 7,000 rail cars required for a client in South Africa, where we established a procurement team on the ground supported by experts from the UK. 

We offer a one-stop shop that supports clients throughout the procurement lifecycle. That means we will typically specify client requirements, develop a procurement strategy and manage the entire procurement process. We also have considerable experience providing full engineering-procurement-construction (EPC) services on major rail projects in Canada.

A solid reputation for delivering what clients need

We are well known for our rolling stock procurement capabilities but are also adept at procuring other goods and services that make rail systems work effectively. Signalling systems, rolling stock depots and complete greenfield railway systems are just some examples. We take pride in helping our clients to deliver complex projects of all sizes into the operational rail environment.

  • Feasibility Studies

Procurement is just one of many services we provide for our Rail & Transit clients.
