MPI Ltd became involved in the rail industry in the late 1980’s when we began our relationship with Westinghouse Signals. Initially MPI supplied them with technical staff based at their Chippenham headquarters and numerous sites throughout the UK.
During the 1990’s MPI became involved with various rail companies and diversified into other areas of the industry. A major contract was negotiated with Taylor Woodrow on the refurbishment of underground stations and installation of ticketing systems. This subsequently opened the doors in London Underground.
In 1998 MPI completed a contract in Hong Kong for GEC Alstom, working on the signalling system on the Mass Transit System. MPI have also been very involved with the rolling stock arm of the industry both in the UK and overseas in countries such as Finland, Poland, Norway, Switzerland, and Italy.
