Welcome to Adrian Phillips Engineering Ltd (APE).

APEL was formed in January 2011 by Adrian & Tricia Phillips. Adrian has a wealth of knowledge and experience gained from joining the rail business in his early twenties. Previously Adrian worked in the plant industry operating & maintaining excavators. He worked for Hugh Phillips Engineering, which was owned by his late father Hugh. The company built rail vehicles for companies all over the world in countries such as Ireland, France, Sudan, Tanzania, Ghana, Mozambique and the UK. The company also built specialist themed rail vehicles for the tourist industry for railways such as Snowdon Mountain Railway and Euro Disney Paris.

In 1996 Adrian set up his own company producing his first road/rail vehicles and rail trailers. In this company he sold 350 rail trailers and manufactured 250 road rail vehicles in the 12 years he was in control. The year of 2008 was all change. Adrian sold his company and went consulting for several of his previous customers. This allowed Adrian to see how his previous products were being used and maintained. Armed with this new knowledge, Adrian and Tricia have formed APEL to provide a good honest quality service to the road rail industry the world over.

 With the experience of our handpicked team we are able to deal with most engineering issues encountered in building road rail vehicles. Our skill base includes -

• Specialising in electronics, electrics, pneumatics, hydraulics, mechanics and computer programming.
• Test engineers who push the envelope of each product so we meet and exceed our customer expectations aided by our new testing facility
• All test engineers and workshop engineers have at least 10 years experience in road rail products and are very familiar with the demands of the industry

We feel we have the edge over our competitors when dealing with National and Multinational companies and overseas railways. Both Directors and employees are very familiar in working to Network Rail (NWR) Group Standards as well as many other overseas railways engineering standards. Previously we have shipped road rail vehicles and associated equipment to Australia, Russia, Malaysia, Belgium, Holland, France and Ireland.
