Products supplied: Access steps

"Thank you for the steps which you have manufactured for us for the Train Service Shed. I know they were bespoke and due to the confines of the location were an awkward design, however you have come through. All users have commented on the stability and overall quality and id appreciate if you would pass on my thanks to Stuart and the team. ."

"The standard set of steps previously used had been around for 20 or 30 years, but the new generation of Semmco access solutions have been developed in accordance with the new regulations on working at height which came into force into 2005 and incorporate new materials such as aluminium and anti-skid coatings, as well as hand rails to minimise the risk of falling."

Scot Rail

First ScotRail Limited

Products supplied: Access Equipment

"We have been using Semmco’s services for a number of years now, where they have been providing, various aluminium staging for train front end access, aluminium working platforms for pit working, aluminium / GRP pit boards, with protective handrails, aluminium train access side platforms, door bars for train saloon doors, to protect staff during maintenance. This is to comply with Working at Height Regulations.

These platforms and staging, are used at ScotRail’s four Maintenance Depots, at Shields, Corkerhill, Inverness, and Haymarket, as well as terminal stations, where we employ Maintenance Staff. These locations are Glasgow Central, Glasgow Queen Street, Edinburgh Waverly, and Inverness.

We chose Semmco to provide this equipment, due to their superior quality, robustness manoeuvrability, portability (lightweight), and cost effectiveness. They also supply to the aero industry, who, like ourselves, have high specifications, and expectations.

Semmco provide a very professional pre sale and after sales service, including Technical support, and are always available by phone, to assist with any arising problems or tweaks that are required.

The Semmco Engineers who attend on site have a good knowledge of their products, and have a very good design eye, especially with bespoke equipment, as different locations require different requirements.

I would recommend Semmco as a quality, and reliable supplier, for the above equipment, within a very demanding Rail environment. We intend to have an ongoing business relationship with Semmco in the future, providing very well constructed products, to aid our staff in Maintaining our train fleets in a safe and efficient manner."

Products supplied: Roof and Front Access, Pit Boards and Safety Rails

"Hitachi Rail Europe(Ashford) have been using Semmco for approximately 2 years, since I saw some of their products at a rail exhibition.

Initially I purchased several pit boards with removable safety rails, which my existing supplier could not provide either in quality or timescale. Some of these were specifically designed  due to the difficulty in accessing the front of the train from certain roads.. Other products which we have now purchased include roof and front end access platforms, which are bespoked to the Class 395 train. Currently we are  replacing all crossing points in our yard with a better design and more durable material.

Semmco have proven to be an extremely reliable company who consistently deliver an expected high quality of product on time. Their advice and guidance on some issues proved to be correct and saved considerable time in manufacture. Semmco are currently in discussion with Hitachi Rail London regarding other tenders which we have either submitted or in the process of."
