Story Contracting is one of the first companies in the U.K. to achieve the “Route to Gold” Bronze Medal, awarded at Network Rail’s Plant Reliability conference.
Story’s Head of Technical Development Mark Bruce & Workshop Manager James Haile accepted the award on Monday on behalf of the Plant Department at the Plant Reliability Conference at Westwood, Network Rail’s training headquarters.
This is a fantastic achievement for everybody within the Plant Division from all 3 depots (Carlisle, Bonnyrigg and Normanton) but especially so for the maintenance teams who are working tirelessly to achieve 100% plant reliability on a daily basis. Trust, honesty and openness with a “Do it right” attitude is paying dividends – the division have already achieved 100% reliability on 4 separate occasions this year; the governance and how the issues are dealt with are also an important measure.
“I am delighted that Story have fully embraced the Network Rail ‘Route to Gold’ process to achieve a strong performance across all 6 measures of plant reliability in respect of their supply and operation of Road Rail Vehicles. The awards are attained through both demonstrating proven shift performance, as measured on our Rail Plant Performance System, and strong levels of industry engagement through sharing best practice and continuous improvement. This has been achieved through collaboration with the Network Rail Plant Reliability Team. The Bronze level of achievement is awarded to Story in recognition of their attainment to date and the team look forward to supporting further improvement in the Story Route to Gold.” James Helm (Network Rail Plant Reliability Team)
