The Railway Industry Association is the voice of the UK rail supply community. 

Established in 1875, RIA has over 350 member companies from across the supply chain, over 60 per cent of which are small or medium sized enterprises (SMEs). Its member companies represent a large proportion of the rail industry by turnover, reflect a great diversity of disciplines within the sector, and cover the lengths and breadths of the UK.  

The RIA supports the delivery of a bigger and better rail industry, representing the sector as an essential generator of economic growth, jobs and investment, supporting a low carbon form of mass transit for communities across the UK.

Empowering recognition as an apprentice
