MP and Deputy Mayor formally open Haigh Rail’s Bamber Bridge office
Nigel Evans, Conservative MP for the Ribble Valley, and Linda Woollard, Deputy Mayor of South Ribble Borough Council, celebrated the success of Haigh Rail by formally opening its head office in Bamber Bridge on 6th May 2016.
The office in Momentum Place, off Nook Lane, signals the growth and success of the company over the last five years, which are largely attributable to the drive of its managing director, Chris Haigh. This was noted by MP Nigel Evans, who commented: “Haigh Rail is a local success story and I was only too pleased to be invited to the official opening of the new headquarters in Bamber Bridge.
“It is hugely impressive to see Chris Haigh start from zero and create a company with 41 employees in just five short years. This is a fantastic new facility which states the company’s intention to continue its great work in this part of the country, where there are strong transport links.
“New enterprises such as Haigh Rail, which supply a vital engineering provision for Network Rail, as well as a range of private companies, are great for the region. This new office in Ribble Valley offers exciting local employment opportunities, which will be a boost to the local economy. The company should be called Haigh Rail Unlimited!”
With 1,200 square feet of office space and a further 1,700 square feet of storage space, the new headquarters offers ample room for Haigh Rail Ltd. to continue its plans for expansion. Eight members of staff will be based in the office, with a number of hot desks available for employees based elsewhere. The office is also well-equipped and suited for professional client meetings.
