Hitachi Rail Europe Ltd is a leading manufacturer in total railway solutions, covering rolling stock, signalling, service delivery and traffic management. Our Global Head Office is located in Central London and we currently operate from project offices across the UK, several depot locations and our state-of-the-art rail vehicle manufacturing facility in Newton Aycliffe.
Our Class 395 Javelin trains currently in operation on the HS1 route have proven our capability in the UK, based on a blend of British and Japanese technical expertise. The Intercity Express Programme, Abellio ScotRail franchise and contracts with First Group for their West of England and TransPennine routes will see our teams deliver over 200 new trains over the next two years. We are now looking to expand our operations further to build upon our global reputation for quality, reliability, innovation, design and technological leadership.
Rail Delivery Group
The Rail Delivery Group exists to enable rail companies to succeed in transforming and delivering a successful railway.
Rail plays an ever more crucial role in Britain, with long term growth in passengers and freight. The Rail Delivery Group (RDG) brings together all passenger and freight operators with Network Rail and HS2, providing services and support to enable them to succeed by delivering better services for their customers. This ultimately benefits taxpayers and the economy.
We do that by organising our activity into four portfolios with the following objectives: Customer experience - modernising ticketing and improving door-to-door journeys; Today’s railway - improving punctuality, reliability and value for money; Industry reform - improving industry structures to enable excellence; and Tomorrow’s railway - better planning for the railway’s future.
This activity is supported by communications and engagement with stakeholders, and improvements in how the RDG is organised and operates. We also provide support and give a voice to freight and passenger operators, as well as delivering important national ticketing, information and reservation services for passengers and staff on behalf of member companies.
