Unipart Rail, as part of the UGL Unipart joint venture, has secured a two-year extension to its contract with Sydney Trains for the delivery of maintenance and logistics services for a section of Sydney’s metropolitan passenger rail fleet.
The two-year extension will be effective from July 2019 and provide heavy maintenance and supply chain services to more than 1,050 passenger rail cars and is worth $395m to the joint venture.
Unipart’s Glen Everett – Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand said: “When we commenced the Joint Venture 7 years ago, we knew that the combination of UGL’s heavy maintenance skills and Unipart’s deep Supply Chain and Lean expertise - using our Unipart Way tools and systems - would deliver world-class service to Sydney Trains. We are extremely pleased that the successes of the last 7 years have lead to this significant extension.”
UGL Managing Director Jason Spears said: “We value our long-standing partnership with Sydney Trains. This extension demonstrates our commitment to working with our customer to achieve their goals of delivering safe and reliable transportation for the travelling public.”
UGL Unipart is a 70:30 joint venture between UGL, a member of CIMIC Group, and UK-headquartered Unipart Rail that delivers whole-of-life asset solutions to support highly reliable passenger car fleets.
