Class 170 Project Overview


Pugh & Sanders worked closely with Bombardier Procurement & Production Teams to deliver palletised kits on time, 1 pallet per car (2 pallets 2 car, 3 for 3 car). Within each methodically packaged pallet we segregated Sub-Kits that related to specific Overhaul Tasks, labelled clearly to indicate the timing of when those tasks were undertaken.

The Kitting & Supplier Consolidation service’s Pugh & Sanders provided supported the efficient & reliable output of Trainsets through Overhaul Production, enhancing Bombardier customer services & reducing Bombardier operating costs.
