An Introduction

RIA is the trade association for the UK-based suppliers to the railway industry. 

We have been established for over 140 years, with about 200 member companies representing a large proportion of the supply chain. Our network of rail contacts extends to thousands; many within our member companies, but also within government/industry bodies, as well as academia and adjacent/emerging sectors.
 
The Association’s principal activities are to:

  • Represent members’ interests to Government, regulators, Network Rail and others
  • Offer a forum for dialogue between members
  • Provide information to members
  • Promote exports of members’ products and services
Our member companies represent a large proportion of the rail industry by turnover and reflect a great diversity of technical disciplines within the rail sector. 
The only major sector that we do not represent is that of labour supply and recruitment. 

RIA is governed by a Board of rail industry leaders from the various sub sectors such as rolling stock, infrastructure, SMEs and consultants.
