Hitachi Class 800

Ferrabyrne specialise in rubber-to-metal bonded components and rail suspension systems. We supply both rolling stock and rail freight customers across the UK and Europe.

As a UK based manufacturer, we pride ourselves on our in-house capabilities to design, develop, manufacture and service our rubber-to-metal bonded components. Our engineering expertise has been refined since 1970, and we aim to significantly extend the life of the anti-vibration products we create.

Our successful experience in servicing the rail sector has enabled us to expand into other sectors. This includes commercial vehicles, industrial, electrical insulators, wind turbines, and leisure.

Everything we do is designed, developed, manufactured, and serviced in house, enabling us to remain responsive and efficient. Coupled with this, we enjoy providing a personal service to our customers, many of which we have known for decades. Although we produce both standard and bespoke components and assemblies, Ferrabyrne is committed to quality in all we do.

Our rubber-to-metal bonded components include anti-roll bar systems, traction centres, rail suspension systems, bushes & ball joints, link assemblies, couplings, and mounts.

We maintain our ISO9001:2015 & Railway Industry Supplier Qualification Scheme (RISQS) certification as well as being one of a small number of UK companies to hold IRIS certification TS22163:2017.
