AIRQUICK® quickly became established with British Rail in the late 70's replacing life expired compressors on the eastern region. On completion of this work we were invited to look at other projects initially supplying and fitting spray systems and building chemical pump rigs for train wash plants but expanding to the maintenance and repair of wash plants, fuelling systems, lavatory flushing aprons, CET systems and specialist design and build of bowsers for coolant, oil and windscreen top-up. With a sound knowledge base of supply needs, and maintenance practices within the railway industry AIRQUICK® has increased yet further the range of products and services it offers and the recently completed move to new purpose built premises enhances the maintenance and assembly capability of the business and provides increased office facilities to meet the ever expanding contractual needs of the industry.
