Pandrol is building on its history of innovation and product development by establishing a new Centre of Engineering Excellence for the development of rail infrastructure equipment at their Hudiksvall site in Sweden.
The new ‘Re’ 1800 SYSTEM from Pandrol, which dramatically reduces re-railing time for F40 concrete sleepers, has won the Technical Innovation category at the Railway Gazette International magazine’s annual Rail Business Awards.

The Delachaux Group has brought together its rail division businesses under one unified brand: Pandrol, as part of enhancing its commitment to the rail infrastructure market.
Pandrol has added a new position to its senior management team as it looks to support industrial productivity and improvement strategies across its four product lines – fastenings, aluminothermic welding, equipment and control, and electrification.
Pandrol is delighted to have contributed to a new partnership between the rail supply industry and a consortium of seven universities, which have secured £92 million to fund research aimed at establishing the UK as a world-leading centre of railway excellence.
Pandrol’s Fastclip FE fastening system has been chosen as the preferred fastening for Trafikverket’s 20-year framework agreement with Swedish producers of concrete sleepers.
