Rail City Expansion – New Manchester office opening

Date: April 2015

ADComms, one of Europe’s leading rail telecommunications solutions providers, has expanded its capability with the opening of a new office in Manchester. ADComms has made the move in response to client demand and an expanding portfolio of projects in the region.

Manchester, an important hub for future rail development, is key to the government’s long-term plans to boost the northern economy by £44bn – a figure outlined in a recently released government blueprint produced by Transport for the North. This revealed significant high speed rail investment for the region, with plans for a ‘TransNorth’ rail network to link Manchester, Liverpool, Sheffield, Newcastle and Hull, making it possible for passengers to reach Sheffield and Leeds from Manchester in just 30 minutes.

Regarding inner-city Manchester rail links, Transport for Greater Manchester is calling for government funding to transform local railway stations into modern, vibrant transport hubs at the heart of an integrated network.

Headed up by managers Lee Watson and Andy Bromilow, the new ADComms office is based on the city’s Oxford Street to provide a regionally central telecommunications service. This regional hub will be backed up by expertise in GSMR, FTN and RF from ADComms’ Scunthorpe headquarters.

“This is a strategically important move developed in direct response to feedback from our clients,” said Jason Pearce, managing director of the ADComms Group. “Enabling us to support the exciting new emerging projects in the region, the move will also enhance our wider transport infrastructure base across the area.”

ADComms is already well established as a provider of end-to-end telecoms solutions to the rail sector. The company are currently involved in the delivery of a multi-million pound TETRA radio replacement of the Tyne and Wear Metro system, which is owned and managed by Nexus.
