Dave Walker, Market Development Manager for Rail at Parker Hannifin said:
“As a member of the Rail Freight Group, we are proud to be involved in this year’s annual conference. Delivering growth in an evolving industry is the focus for this year’s event and modern railway vehicles,whether freight or passenger train, are expected to operate reliably and often in some of the most challenging conditions.
“Indeed, it is crucial that these machines withstand extreme temperatures and attacks from aggressive contaminants as well as enduring severe shock and vibration. Here at Parker we offer the products, technical know-how, and close customer support and supply chain capabilities to meet the global challenges of the rail industry head on”
