Washroom partnership and more
TBM Rail has recently established strong links with Sanitaryware Solutions, a Midlands-based manufacturer and distributor of washroom and sanitaryware products.
Located close to the Nottinghamshire-Derbyshire border, the company offers years of experience and market-leading design, specification and product knowledge in the healthcare, education and transport industries.
Working closely with companies across many sectors gives TBM Rail additional flexibility when it comes to offering train operators the best options for new projects and refurbishments.
The partnership with Sanitaryware Supplies presents many possibilities for the future, and has already seen collaboration on an engineering solution for one of TBM Rail’s customers.
Neil Smith, TBM Rail Director, said: “We have extensive expertise and some great facilities at our Cheshire site, but working alongside a proven supplier of top-class washroom products is a real bonus for us.
“Moreover, Sanitaryware Supplies have some superb engineering workshops themselves, and they have already provided us with the necessary capacity to supply bespoke electrical backboxes and casings for our ongoing roll-out of three-pin and USB power sockets to several train companies.
“Looking forward, with increased skills and resources across two respected companies, we can provide a one-stop service to train operators looking to refurbish their fleet’s passenger toilet and washroom facilities.”
From products manufactured with stainless steel or composite granites, through to hand dryers, valves and fittings in ABS, brass and aluminium, Sanitaryware Supplies develops products of the highest quality that meet required National and European standards of certification.
Andy Dukelow, Sanitaryware Supplies Director, added: “Our partnership with TBM Rail means that we are able to provide a collaborative approach to washroom requirements through their expertise in the passenger comfort area of the rail industry.
“In addition, with our unique design and manufacturing capabilities, we can also provide solutions together for those refurbishment applications others cannot service, thereby offering a complete solution to the railway industry.
“Working with TBM Rail allows us to offer an excellent range of equipment to the growing railway sector. Bespoke, quality products are our hallmark, and train operators can be assured that we will supply the best materials that are fit for purpose and backed by warranties.”
Recently, Sanitaryware Supplies has also assisted TBM Rail in its drive to support local not-for-profit groups. They helped to source washroom items for a Cheshire Scouts group that has been raising funds to complete a new-build that will offer the scouts and other organisations a storage and training base fit for the twenty-first century.
