RSSB forms partnership with Network Rail Consulting

Network Rail Consulting and the RSSB have signed a memorandum of understanding to secure overseas business, which deputy chief executive Anson Jack (pictured) highlighted as an “ideal” strategic partnership.

It will allow the organisation to benefit from RSSB expertise, products and services, and help to develop new revenues back into the UK rail industry and to support RSSB’s capabilities.

Nigel Ash, managing director of Network Rail Consulting, said: “Being able to draw on the body of work and expertise in RSSB is a great addition to our portfolio, which is yielding a lot of interest across the globe.

“There is tremendous appetite to call on our experience as rail specialists, and it’s fitting to be able to weave in RSSB’s knowledge of cross-industry issues and make that available on an international stage too.”

Jack said: “All of our members – including Network Rail – invest time and money into research, development, innovation and solutions, designed specifically to benefit the British national rail system and support business performance improvements in each company.

“These solutions also have the potential to support development overseas, and Network Rail Consulting is an ideal partner to help promote these around the world.”
