WORLD CLASS MAINTENANCE, COMPONENT OVERHAUL AND SUPPLY
UGL Unipart Rail Services Pty Ltd was founded in December 2011 as a joint venture between UGL (Australia) and Unipart Rail (UK). The Joint Venture was formed following the successful bid and tender for the Sydney Trains (RailCorp) Level 3 maintenance contract to provide heavy maintenance and supply chain services to 1,050 passenger cars for Sydney’s metropolitan fleet.
The UGL Unipart Joint Venture combines UGL’s asset management, maintenance capability and intimate
knowledge of Sydney’s passenger rolling stock, Unipart Rail’s international expertise in inventory purchasing,
logistics management and lean practices along with MTR Corporation’s knowledge on maximising assets to their full potential.
With the combined expertise from UGL, Unipart and MTR, UGL Unipart drives efficiencies within our supply chain, workshops and processes to provide our clients with ongoing successful projects and cost effective initiatives.
Our maintenance services, supply chain and value engineering initiatives have increased our client’s fleet availability, reliability and safety.
UGL Unipart is headquartered in Auburn, NSW on a 17 hectare site at the geographical heart of Sydney.
