On the 30th May 2014, our MD John Barke was pleased to join East Midlands Trains, Derby City Council and Network Rail as they marked the day with a special event to celebrate the first ever train which ran between Derby and Nottingham. During the ceremony The Mayor of the City of Derby, Councillor Fareed Hussain unveiled an official plaque to mark the occasion.


The rail industry is close to our hearts as FPA was created following the privatisation of British Railways in 1996.  Privatisation gave us the opportunity to continue to support the rail industry with our services being used today by UK Rail Franchises, Rolling Stock Companies, Track and Infrastructure Companies, Software and Technology companies and Network Rail's Supply Chain. 

Our rail services include : Link-up Rail Compliance Systems and Energy & Utilities Procurement.

It also gave us the opportunity to grow and continue to develop our products and services and offer them to new sectors as can be seen on our website.
