Metal contact specialists to exhibit at Railtex 2019: 14th to 16th May


Samuel Taylor Ltd (STL) will be exhibiting at Railtex 2019, the UK’s premier exhibition of railway equipment, systems and services.
STL, manufactures precision stamped components and metal assemblies typically used in electro-mechanical switches as well as sophisticated bonding of base and precious metals. The company has over 120 years of manufacturing history, and over the past 60 years has developed an in-depth understanding of precious and semi-precious metal stamping for rail focused projects.
Sales Manager at STL, Carl Siviter comments: “STL has been involved in the Rail sector since the 1950’s, supplying small order contacts and items for refurbishment of existing rolling stock. In many cases this would be where the historical supplier has gone out of business or no longer supplies the market, but increasingly this is also for new designs.”
“Railtex gives us a fantastic platform to maintain awareness of STL as a key supplier to the Rail sector, typically for projects related to electro mechanical contact such as signalling or power transfer.”

“Our accumulated know-how dating back to the 1950’s can save the rail subcontractor thousands of pounds on refurbishment projects. Many of the relays and mechanical switches are still in use but not many of the original supply chain manufacturers are still around. STL’s tool storage racks run through the era of British Rail to the modern day, which helps save a significant amount of time and money for rail subcontractors tasked with refurbishing power switches as well as sourcing associated metal contacts and components. Typical refurbishment projects can require only a couple of hundred parts, but if a new design is required, we can assist in the development of that too”.
First staged in 1993, Railtex continues to enjoy strong support from all organisations shaping the UK’s rail industry and has built its reputation as its premier networking event by continuing to attract visiting managers, engineers and buyers at the highest level.
You can visit Samuel Taylor Limited (STL) on stand #B34 at Railtex from 14th-16th May 2019 at the NEC Birmingham.
