What are leasing companies
Porterbrook: An Introduction
Porterbrook Leasing Company specialises in the leasing of all types of railway rolling stock and associated equipment.
As one of the three major rolling stock leasing companies, Porterbrook has been active in the UK rail industry since it was privatised in 1994. By providing freight and train operating companies with modern rolling stock they can be assured of high standards of reliability and performance from their fleets. Passengers can also benefit from comfortable services and the latest technology.
Since privatisation, the industry's approach to train operation has changed dramatically. With many new operators entering the market, a different perspective to service provision has emerged. Whether operators are seeking a fleet that is provided to
them service-ready each day, or whether they prefer to retain in-house responsibility for daily maintenance, Porterbrook offers a range of lease options to suit the full spectrum of requirements. This support extends to third party suppliers, and, Porterbrook has developed strong relationships with material suppliers to manage commercial aspects on behalf of its customers. Similarly, if engineering modifications are required, Porterbrook is ideally placed to implement improvements.
Porterbrook's Business Philosophy is to offer a full range of Rolling Stock Leasing Products tailored to meet its customer's particular needs. The Company also has a genuine commitment to play its part in the development of a safe, efficient and reliable UK Railway Network.
