With roots firmly established in the rail sector for more than a century, WH Davis is today recognised as one of the UK’s leading specialists in wagon design and manufacture.

WH Davis was formed in 1908 as an outfit for repairing and later manufacturing small, wooden-bodied mineral wagons on the railway. Combining quality engineering with the latest technologies and processes, the company has grown throughout the years and is today recognised as the UK’s last remaining independent rail wagon manufacturer.

Along with WH Davis Group's other company, Davis Wagon Services, WH Davis is able to broaden its service offering, providing fleet owners and operators with a full turnkey solution for the lifecycle of the rail wagon.
