The rail industry is less than sixty years older than Henry Williams Limited. The company was formed in Glasgow in 1883, just 58 years after the opening of the Darlington and Stockton Railway manufacturing control and signalling equipment for the rapidly expanding railway network. We moved to Darlington in 1911 to be closer to our railway customers and as the railways continued to develop we moved beyond mechanically operated equipment into electrical systems.
Since those early days we have diversified into many fields, including highways equipment, control systems and forgings, but the railways continue to be core business, the bedrock on which our reputation and success have been built.
Our products and services to the rail industry are built around customer needs whether detailed design, project management, manufacture, installation, testing, commissioning or maintenance and whole life support we can help.
