Responding to structural and commercial changes in the UK and world traction industry, safety systems specialist Rowe Hankins has launched a new concept in whole-life product support, Total Reassurance Engineering.

Sales and marketing manager, Vince Woodward explained the rationale of total reassurance, "The traction industry has changed in the UK and around the world. The separation of infrastructure, rolling stock and train operation has fragmented responsibility. Our solution, Total Reassurance Engineering, takes responsibility for critical safety and control systems on rolling stock and trackside over their whole life."

The Rowe Hankins package includes working with engineers and their clients in the design and selection of critical components. As programmes are rolled out, the company will undertake installation, service and mid-life upgrades.

"This initiative is a response to current needs, where companies wish to focus on core tasks, but need to know that critical safety systems are managed for peak performance. Similar arrangements are common, and have worked very well for many years, in the aviation industry," explained Vince.

A new brochure setting out the company's 'Total Reassurance Engineering' package is available on request, telephone +44 (0)161 765 3002.

Rowe Hankins Components will be at Railtex in the UK where visitors can find out more about 'Total Reaasurance Engineering'. Senior technical staff will be on hand throughout the show to demonstrate products and discuss safety and technical issues.

Besides design and manufacturing, the company is also the UK distributor for several world-class rail safety system producers such as Eaton Heinemann, LEM and Secheron. They will be exhibiting jointly with voltage measurement specialist LEM in hall 1 on stand 737. Railtex takes place November 2-4, 2004.
