Porterbrook – Patron
Porterbrook has been at the heart of Britain’s railway for over 25 years.
We currently have almost 4,000 vehicles on lease or on order and we own almost a third of the national passenger fleet. Every day our trains safely travel over a million miles, enabling 1.5m passenger journeys.
Since privatisation, we have invested £3bn in new passenger and freight vehicles, and we are looking to invest a further £1bn in UK rail over the coming years. At the same time we spend £3m every week with the UK rolling stock supply chain, which supports almost 7,000 jobs.
Innovation is at the heart of Porterbrook’s whole life asset management approach. In collaboration with our customers and supply chain partners, we are constantly exploring how new technologies can meet the needs of rail users, both today and tomorrow.
