Arrow Solutions targets rail industry’s cleaning challenges

Posted on 1 Mar 2016 by Jonny Williamson

One of the UK’s leading manufacturers of specialist chemicals, Arrow Solutions is heading to Infrarail 2016 with a ‘challenge’ for the sector.

Arrow Solutions, which manufactures a range of cleaning, maintenance and anti-icing products, is inviting train operators; presentation managers; purchasing consultants, and engineers to test its experts with their toughest challenges.

The company is keen to help the rail industry solve its problems by offering access to more than 45 years of technical experience and world class manufacturing facilities at its 16-acre site in Derbyshire.

Specialists from the firm will be on stand B20 at the international show (held at Excel London from April 12-14) to discuss these challenges and solutions for overcoming them.

Product and marketing manager, Martin Bell explained: “We did a similar initiative at Railtex last year and the response was fantastic.

“Our experts worked with more than 20 different companies on problems ranging from breaking down limescale and keeping windows clean, to protecting paintwork and maintaining effluent tanks.”

He added: “Infrarail will attract a slightly different audience, but one that will definitely benefit from our products and knowledge. We look forward to tackling the challenges head-on.”
