Iron technology leader Saint-Gobain PAM UK, part of international materials company Saint-Gobain, has gained a prestigious industry accreditation for the supply of its acclaimed range of ductile and cast iron drainage solutions to the UK rail sector.
Saint-Gobain PAM UK has joined Achilles Link-up - the rail industry supplier registration and pre-qualification community. It will put the company into direct contact with consultants, contractors and buyers from the rail sector looking for product supply from a trusted and well established organisation. Rather than the traditional model, where buyers approach suppliers on an ad hoc basis, the Achilles accreditation acts as a middle-ground for buyers and suppliers. It provides valid, up-to-date information which increases opportunities for both buyers and suppliers.
The accreditation gives the rail industry access to the country’s broadest range of ductile and cast iron drainage solutions, known for their quality, durability, safety and environmental credentials. On average, 11,000 searches are made in Link-up each month, by some 2,200 buyers.
Paul Thompson, Marketing Manager of Municipal Castings of Saint-Gobain PAM UK commented: “We already have Achilles accreditation in the utility sector and this new accreditation provides excellent exposure for our offering to potential buyers within the rail sector.”
