Our History

About Emeg Group

The company was formed in 1997 by Richard Simmonite, a time-served Electrical Engineer with 50 years’ experience within the rail sector. Today, Emeg is a totally rail focused company with a UK Head Office, Manufacturing & Distribution Hub and R&D Centre of Excellence in Chesterfield, a Design Office in Manchester and an International HQ in Dubai.

Emeg offer turnkey in-house solutions to all rail engineering projects – from new build, enhancement & refurbishment works to some of the most exciting and ambitious rail projects taking place all over the world. Throughout our long-standing history, our work has been mainly within maintenance depots and sidings, station upgrades and re-signalling / pway project works; however, these days, there isn’t much our growing team of rail experts can’t handle.

Safety is in Our DNA

We employ a consistent site workforce of full-time engineers, electricians, pipe fitters, gas installers and heating & ventilation engineers, all ably controlled by our project management teams, backed up with off site services of SQE, estimating, procurement and design.

We believe that safety is a behavioural culture and an attitude and as such is lead from the top by the Managing Director. We firmly believe that our unprecedented success in continuing to achieve zero accidents over our full, 25-year trading history is a tribute to our work ethos. This ethos and safety-first culture, coupled with our highly experienced and time-served workforce, is fundamental to our past and continued success.

40+ Years of Safety

Emeg engineers were responsible for the very first Depot Protection System (DPS), installed at the newly built Norwich Crown Point rail depot in 1980. We’ve come a long way since then and have designed and installed DPS solutions in depots all over the UK.
