Railway Plant Services in Northern Ireland

Listen to this article

In 2008 Kieran Fegan and Chris Feeney spotted a gap in the market for a Plant and Labour supplier for railway infrastructure in Northern Ireland, at that point Railway Plant Services Ltd was founded.

Prior to this, both directors worked for a decade in the railway industry in England and Ireland. Together they share a wealth of experience and knowledge from working in these regions.

The company began its life with a fleet of two machines and a few attachments. Over the next few years the fleet increased as the company grew.

In 2018, Railway Plant Services moved away from labour supply and concentrated business operations on the hire of RRV’s and operators. New RRV MEWPs were added to the fleet, diversifying its services. Another addition to the fleet was its RRV Land Rover.
Fast forward to the present, the company now boasts a fleet of over 30 RRV machines, a large fleet of rail trailers, and much more specialised rail equipment such as Tin Bin vacuum systems.

The large fleet of RRV’s and Service Vehicles is expertly maintained by the company’s in-house team of specialised technicians. Railway Plant Services ensures its RRV fleet and drivers are fully compliant to railway standards and the latest editions to the fleet are two new RRV Komatsu 160’s. The company also provides low loader transport service and Hiab services.

Companies who may be tendering for contracts in Northern Ireland, should not hesitate to contact Railway Plant Services for their on-track plant requirements. A family run company with competitive rates, dedicated to providing a quality service.
