Rail industry supplier Midland-ACS expands



UK manufacturer Midland-ACS is investing £2m in production and R&D resources to develop fluid control components business.

Midland-ACS has an enviable reputation for supplying components such as flow / control valves, actuation cylinders and air treatment equipment for fluid and air handling in arduous and extreme environments. The company reports that recent investment at Midland-ACS will benefit many customers in the rail industry. Production improvements mean faster deliveries and more innovation in the company’s range of products such as train stop motors, hopper door cylinders, hydraulic and pneumatic control panels, hand valve assemblies, points-movers, ground locks and air treatment equipment. Midland-ACS has made inroads within the rail industry and has recently renewed supply contracts with London Underground and International Rail Services (formerly Trinity Rail Europe).

Internationally, Midland-ACS is also a major supplier of 316 stainless steel control equipment to the oil, gas and petrochemical industries.

As part of its ongoing expansion plans, the company is currently in the middle of a two-year and £2 million investment plan. The results have already reduced production cycles and current customer lead times at their Midlands-based manufacturing facility, thanks in part to new plant machinery and a new management team focussed on working more closely with specific industry sectors such as the rail industry.

Upbeat MD Peter Evans outlined the company approach, "Midland-ACS is in the position it is in today because of its track record in designing, engineering and manufacturing high-quality and dependable products. Looking to the future we will continue to push to further improve quality and use innovation in developing products."
