What our Clients Say about us:

I have worked with Nathan and his team at Pearson’s engineering for the last four years. During this time he has looked after our rail infrastructure in a safe and very reliable way.
His routine inspections are booked in advance ,attended as stated and then we get any findings back quickly, even during the new covid restrictions , and always in a safe manner.
They have done a couple of track replacement jobs , which were done to specification and to quoted budget.
Nathan will always take time to answer and advise on any Rail related queries and also attend site visits to advise on behalf of our company with or without us, knowing he will be looking at anything from our perspective as well as the safety of everyone involved. Richard Endacott, Crawley - Cemex
I would like to thank you and your colleagues for the safe and efficient manner in which you carried out the track repairs at Immingham East. I look forward to a long and successful partnership for our rail track inspection and repairs. Steve Waterman, Immingham Storage Co Ltd
