WVCO Attends Infrarail 2014

Members of the WVCO team join the DWG booth at Infrarail 2014.

Representatives from more than 170 companies gathered this week at Earls Court exhibition center in London for the 10th International Railway Infrastructure Exhibition a.k.a. Infrarail 2014. Among them were three WVCO reps from our Railroad Division who joined colleagues at the DWG Timber Components Ltd booth to demonstrate our railroad and infrastructure maintenance and repair products.

DWG, one of our distributors in the UK, offers a range of concrete and timber repair products for the rail and civil industries including Spikefast, Fastpatch, handheld applicators and metering equipment for urethane based timber, concrete and asphalt repair products.

It was an electrifying scene with companies from all over the world showcasing the very latest products, systems and services for constructing, operating and maintaining rail systems. The exhibition also featured an interactive discussion forum and keynote speeches from policy-makers and industry leaders.

This year was especially exciting for us as the Civil Infrastructure & Technology Exhibition (CITE) took place alongside Infrarail making the largest infrastructure exhibition held in the UK this year.

It was beneficial for us to see the latest technology in action, learn about new products/services, consolidate existing relationships and make new connections. We could tell you all about it….but we’d rather let Infarail show you the event in action (see if you can spot our team):
