The rail industry in the UK has never been busier, with large-scale projects across the country providing massive opportunities. And speakers at Made in the UK will outline how manufacturers can take advantage. Projects such as HS2 and the major improvements to the rail links across the north of the country continue to make headlines, which has led to the rail sector being under increased scrutiny. The industry’s supply chain in particular is set to benefit from these network projects. And the supply chain needs to take advantage of what’s on offer.

These opportunities will be the key focus of The Railway session at Made in the UK Conference in Liverpool on 17 June. The session will hear from a number of high-quality experts. Giles Thomas, rail systems director, HS2 will be one of them and he [said], “There is a huge opportunity for us to utilise technology to improve on the way we work in building the HS2 infrastructure. The innovation that the rail supply chain offers us will be crucial to making HS2 happen.”
