The Rail Supply Group (RSG) is the leadership body for the rail supply sector, working in partnership with the Rail Delivery Group (RDG) to set the direction for the industry. We provide leadership and guidance to industry and Government, and lead a programme of work on behalf of the UK rail supply chain.
Formed in 2014, the RSG is the only rail body to have members from Government and the private sector, focusing on supporting and enhancing the rail supply chain, from SMEs to multi-national companies across the UK. The RSG works on behalf of the UK rail supply industry as a whole, rather than any single supplier.
The Rail Supply Group aims to strengthen the capability and competitiveness of the UK rail supply chain to grow business at home and abroad.
The RSG focuses on four areas of work: driving growth; accelerating innovation; doubling exports and improving skills. There are also a number of cross-cutting programmes such as the Industrial Strategy, Sector Deal, SMEs and Digital Railway.
We're supported by three Government departments
The RSG Council composition is fully representative of the UK rail supply chain, covering the breadth and depth of the supply chain and its sub categories, from SMEs to tier 1’s, with senior industry leaders owning the workstreams and cross cutting programmes.
The work of the RSG is complementary of the 10 pillars of the Government’s Industrial Strategy, which can be viewed here.
