SIG plc is the leading supplier of specialist construction materials, and this week they have launched a new offering focusing on the Rail and Civil Engineering markets.
SIG Launches SIG Rail and Infrastructure Offer SIG Rail and Infrastructure, was announced and launched at the Civil Infrastructure & Technology Exhibition (‘) last week, pools the knowledge and expertise from three of SIGs businesses (VJ Technology, Kem Edwards and SIG Construction Accessories) with the Rail & Infrastructure Alliance; a group of 45 of SIGs key manufacturers and suppliers.
Working with SIG Rail & Infrastructure, civil engineering contractors are able to access the combined services of these businesses with SIG acting as a conduit between contractors and all of their suppliers on a project. As well as opening up a wider pool of expertise to civil engineering contractors, the SIG Rail & Infrastructure service means all procedures invoicing, logistics, ordering, and management are overseen by a single point of contact at SIG.
Mark Fyfe, UK Infrastructure Manager at SIG plc, heads up the SIG Rail & Infrastructure service and acts as the main contact for customers. Mark is responsible for identifying where the alliances collaborative knowledge can be best applied to an individual project and how to maximise efficiency in managing the supply chain throughout the project on behalf of customers.
Mark said: I’m very excited to see the Rail & Infrastructure service come to fruition after many months of planning, and we are thrilled with the reception is has received following the launch.
The concept cut its teeth on the Crossrail project, Mark explained, where a similar alliance-led approach helped deliver multi-million pounds worth of products to the project. It was considered such a massive success that we decided to roll it out on a larger scale to ensure we could provide similar efficiencies to customers across the civil engineering sector.
