Arrow Solutions strengthens rail sector presence with appointment of new Sales Manager

One of the UK’s leading manufacturers of professional cleaning chemicals is aiming for further expansion in rail after appointing a new Sales Manager for the sector.

Arrow Solutions, which celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2018, has recruited Alex Campbell to support existing and new clients in their bid to meet today’s requirements for cleaner and better performing trains.

The East Midlands firm is already a significant supplier to the industry with a wide customer base, including Train Operating Companies (TOCs), OEMs and infrastructure contractors. It now plans to deliver its products to even more organisations across the UK, Europe, the Far East and the Middle East.

Demand has been especially strong for the firm’s market leading safe degreasing solution ‘Lotoxane®’ and its ‘Ecowash Autoshine’ exterior train wash, which provides clients with a cost effective way of keeping their rolling stock clean and operational.

“We’ve been operating in the rail sector for over 45 years, during which time we have proven that our cleaning and maintenance solutions can deliver performance over and above other alternatives,” explained Alex Campbell.

“Our products are continually updated and refined to ensure they surpass the different challenges faced by the rail industry. It’s not just a case of providing them with a solution; we pride ourselves on getting underneath the skin of our clients, finding out what the issues/opportunities are and then applying a strategy that will help them improve performance, keeping their rolling stock running and, hopefully, saving them money in the process.”

He went on to add:

“We also have a team of R&D specialists working in our laboratory in Moira and they’re continually looking to enhance existing products and develop new technologies. This gives us a great competitive advantage and one we are looking to press home.

“This is a very exciting opportunity to develop Arrow’s business in a strategically important market, which has significant growth potential with £48bn Government investment planned between now and 2024. HS2 and Crossrail are both exciting projects and that’s just the UK…our reach is global.”

Arrow Solutions supplies a large range of products to the rail industry, meeting the cleaning and maintenance needs of some of the sector’s biggest names.

Going forward, the firm believes there are significant opportunities for supplying professional chemical products for the cleaning and maintenance of bogies and wheel sets.

Alex, who has significant experience in the cleaning market, went on to add:

“We’re beginning to see an increasing number of rail OEMs operating their own bogie maintenance facilities.”

He concluded: “This is good news for our business as we have a number of specially formulated products currently available that deliver outstanding cleaning and degreasing solutions for bogies and wheel sets.”
