Four star upgrade after rail audit
RISQS is the Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme. Buyers of all products and services throughout the GB rail industry use Achilles (soon to be RSSB) RISQS as its supplier qualification service.
Jazmin Kellas, quality manager with AJ Engineering said: “This scheme helps suppliers sell into the GB rail industry by providing an open, fair and transparent way to be formally recognised as capable providers of products and services. Suppliers need to be RISQS verified in order to provide products/services to GB rail. Our audit took place on March 6 & 7 and went from a 3-star to a 4-star rating. This is a great result considering it was a tough two-day audit.”
AJ Engineering’s most recent rail related project was its work on the Forres railway upgrade. The company designed, fabricated and installed the new railway station and footbridge in Forres. The works on the station building were contracted by Global Infrastructure whilst BAM Nuttall appointed AJ Engineering to handle the footbridge.
