NRL rail director Jim Taylor has celebrated 25 years of service with the company, which provides recruitment, training, rail maintenance and Non-Destructive testing (NDT) services to the technical, engineering and construction sectors.
Originally joining the recruitment side of NRL in 1994, Jim worked within NRL’s Falkirk branch, supporting clients within the petro-chemical, oil & gas and marine sectors with engineering candidates.
In 2001, through his existing contacts, the opportunity arose to supply Ultrasonic Operators to the Rail Industry – this provided NRL with an opportunity to diversify its services, leading to the setup of a new Rail contracting business in 2001.
Today Jim oversees NRL’s grinding, signalling and ultrasonic inspection services to clients across the UK, including maintaining and upgrading the country’s over and underground tracks.
NRL group director Donald Livingston commented on the anniversary: “Jim has taken his rail expertise and developed a strong service offering to our clients, drawing on his own in-depth knowledge whilst successfully transferring these skills to our Grangemouth and Barnsley Rail operations team.
“Under his leadership our Rail contracting business provides vital maintenance to the UK’s leading rail infrastructure owners, with a strong culture for safely and best practice onsite.”
