AEGIS Certification Services (ACS) have been a fantastic help in the growth of Fitzgerald plant. They have been invaluable in certification for all our new build projects. In relation to our certification requirements, we can depend upon ACS to adhere to the agreed timescales and costs, enabling us to deliver to our clients without delay, on time and to budget.
ACS have set up a fantastic communication network which has helped all our projects from bespoke to the more common projects. Fitzgerald Plant Services could not have expanded its business without their help.

AEGIS recently delivered a ‘first-class’ service to Varamis Rail that fulfilled all requirements of the complex engineering challenges we faced when investigating the compatibility of our preferred rolling stock on the WCML.
The completed work supported Varamis Rail’s successful bid to acquire a Statement of Compatibility, which was subsequently issued in March 2022. AEGIS often went beyond what was expected from their initial proposal, with regular communication throughout. Varamis Rail is delighted to have struck up this vital relationship as we enter the rail industry as the UK’s newest Freight Operating Company and we look forward to working more with AEGIS in the future.
Phil Read – Managing Director – Varamis Rail
I have great confidence in the PAB team at AEGIS that I have worked with for about six years on many various and troublesome projects. The support the whole team have given myself since I took on the role as Plant Compliance and Special Projects Manager with Trac Engineering then onto QTS is second to none.
It has been a massive learning curve for myself and the team at AEGIS are always on hand to help with queries I might have. The response and willingness to help with projects to push them on when required for a certain date is brilliant. I have never been let down yet. Due to the good relationship, I have with most of the team I only use AEGIS for certificating our machines as the value for money and professionalism I receive means I wouldn’t go elsewhere for this service.
John Simpson – Plant Compliance & Special Projects Manager – QTS Group
AEGIS Engineering Systems has supported our project from day one providing clarity and guidance in a vast number of railway domains. On that matter AEGIS quickly understood the needs of the project and knew where to support, what stakeholders to involve and how to set up the workflow to ensure certification of our On Track Machine.
AEGIS’ team of engineers have proven to be extremely knowledgeable on large subjects such as EMC, CSM and Gauging. Their contributions to the project allowed successful certification for our brand new fleet of Weed Spraying trains, in addition AEGIS have a vast external network of subject matter experts that provided additional support as required throughout the project.
Andy Batters as our appointed Project Manager was highly professional and knew exactly when to engage the necessary competences for every milestone. He was also quite resourceful providing ideas, contacts and taking the best approaches to support us and our suppliers

“Vivarail have engaged the expert support that AEGIS provide and the specialism they have built up and afford us with our Products (230’s / 484s’ battery technology, compatibility, EMC). Their communication, service, support, excellent attitude and outputs are first class placing the customer at the heart of their delivery.
The highly competent and experienced team at AEGIS are highly recommended for all complexities of product no matter how novel or bespoke”.

“AEGIS (particularly Dan Steenson and Colin Place) have been exceptionally helpful, extremely knowledgeable and very practical to work with on the HydroFLEX project. I wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again”.
Helen Simpson – Innovation and Projects Director – Porterbrook
“Our latest sander project, the OTM sander system, has been made a lot easier thanks to the assistance of James Johnson and the team at AEGIS Engineering Systems.
AEGIS have produced a compliance matrix; detailing all of the compliance requirements for the system, and what would be acceptable evidence to demonstrate compliance, on a clause-by-clause basis.
This allows ourselves – as the supplier – the customer – as the safety case holder – and the machine owner – as the ECM – to all agree in advance exactly what needs to be in the engineering change pack and who’s responsibility it is to provide it.
A common failing of modification projects, such as this, is failing to reach this understanding in advance and critical time being wasted to-ing and fro-ing hurriedly trying to assemble missing information at the last minute”.
