BWB BOOSTS RAIL CAPABILITY WITH RISQS ACCREDITATION
02 February 2018
BWB has taken its first important step towards greater involvement in the UK rail industry by recently secured accreditation from the Rail Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS). Following a rigorous audit, the supplier pre-qualification service used by buyers of products and services throughout the UK rail industry confirmed that BWB had qualified for 108 supply codes for a range of consultancy, design and software development services.
With BWB now part of the CAF Group and funding of almost £48bn identified for Network Rail during Control Period 6 (2019-2024), the accreditation comes at a crucial time for the business.
Andy Passmore, BWB’s Director of Transport & Infrastructure, said: ‘We are delighted to have taken this first step towards greater involvement in the UK rail industry. The Government’s plans for regionally devolved investment and market led rail schemes offer a fantastic opportunity for both BWB and CAF to contribute to the enhancement of our national rail network.”
