Member Testimonials

When looking at becoming members of industry organisations, there was no question in our minds about joining RFM. They instantly appeared to be an organisation with it’s members at the heart of what they do and this has proven to be the case. They are proactive in establishing a relationship with their members as well as adding value and supporting you where they can, this is an excellent service. Anturas joined to help increase our market presence, the networking opportunities RFM presents are invaluable in supporting this as well as other profile raising activities they offer.

Cath Leech, Managing Director, Anturas

Being fairly new suppliers to the Rail Sector, we felt that RFM would not only able to offer us access to the “right people” within the industry, both customers and other SME’s, who we now collaborate closely with,  but also offer an invaluable insight into the needs of the Rail sector for both current and future requirements through extremely well organised and varied networking and events programmes. The collective knowledge of the RFM team is second to none and has been a valuable source of information for us, from supplier engagement activities to access to regional and national funding for our R&D work.

Heather Forster, Rail Accounts Manager, Nubold Group

Being a member of Rail Forum Midlands allows Grinsty Rail Limited to engage more comprehensively with our customers, partners and suppliers in respect to potential and existing projects.
