October 2015 Rail safety specialist, Zonegreen, is marking a milestone moment in its history, as the 1,000th order of its depot protection equipment prepares to leave the firm’s Sheffield headquarters.


September 2014 Sheffield-based Zonegreen has received recognition for its technological expertise and high quality performance from one of the world’s largest rail industry companies.

High Demand for Innovative safety solutions

Safety is of critical importance to the rail industry as a whole, from senior management downwards. However, it can also be good for business. Sheffield-based rail safety expert Zonegreen says the demand for innovative safety solutions is helping drive the company’s product expansion in the UK and abroad.

Improving productivity and efficiency are therefore key to reducing these pressures and to the continued successful operation of rail depots across the country.
