Freightliner

Freightliner, a subsidiary of Genesee and Wyoming Inc, is an award-winning rail freight haulier. To maintain their high-quality service, they invested in a multi-million-pound project to build a state-of-the-art railroad locomotive and wagon maintenance and fuelling facility at its Ipswich yard.

Ceetech was particularly proud to be involved in this project as Ipswich is their home town. Freightliner anticipates 20 skilled / semi-skilled jobs to be created in the new facility and intend to use local suppliers for the procurement of materials and equipment.

Following a successful tender, Ceetech was awarded the £900,000 contract for a nine-month project starting in December 2020. Ceetech was contracted to provide the M&E services to the 54-meter-long steel-framed building. The maintenance facility houses an inspection pit, two overhead cranes, and a wheel lathe, as well as supporting offices.
