Permaquip then, Permaquip today
Our story since 1970 is one of constant forward motion. Since our earliest days building railway tools and equipment we’ve continually pushed into new territory, developing new products to meet new challenges, and creating industry-standard equipment along the way.
Products such as our bespoke personnel carriers, on-track maintenance (OTM) equipment and high-capacity catenary trolleys (HCTs) saw us become the first choice among UK contractors in the 1980s and 1990s.
Our highway-based Volvo HP950 catenary vehicles became a familiar feature of the West Coast modernisation works, and our Road Rail Land Rovers became the backbone of many remote maintenance facilities, transferring personnel and materials in challenging weather conditions.
Permaquip’s tried-and-tested equipment and groundbreaking products are relied on by leading rail networks and maintenance contractors around the world.
They rely on us to keep them moving, which is why we’ve never believed in standing still
