Who We Are

The Sabre Rail story started back in 1987, when our driving ambition was to be recognised as a leading UK independent brake overhaul specialist.

Fast forward nearly 25 years and Sabre Rail are now established as the UK's leading independent rail component overhaul specialists, with a wealth of experience in mainline, high speed, freight, metro and light rail services.

Our team of 80 staff can complete component overhaul programmes within incredibly short time scales. We pioneered the 24 hour turnaround of bogie component kits and continue to innovate across multiple international markets. We are engineers first and foremost and it's this efficiency driven approach that makes us the first choice for owners, operators and maintainers alike.

So that's who we are - but why choose us? Engineering excellence is no longer enough in the modern rail sector... it's not desired, but expected.

So at Sabre Rail, we are taking customer service and development innovation to another level. From our purpose built technical centre we liaise directly with clients, providing a bespoke level or service, irrespective of order value. Engineering components to achieve the life you expect with a zero defect rate is what Sabre Rail is all about.

We know how good we are. You'd expect us to be rather good at blowing our own trumpet.

So in order to get a rather less biased answer to the question "Why choose us?", here is what the people who really matter think...

"At Unipart Rail we continue to choose Sabre Rail as they consistently deliver beyond expectation, no matter how aggressive the turnaround requirement we can always rely on an impeccable and pain-free service"
