Comech Metrology heading up Greenwood Miniprof Agency for the UK & Ireland

Dear Miniprof User / Customer,

Following many months of negotiation, Bakerail Services can now confirm that Comech Metrology, East Midlands, will be heading up the Greenwood Engineering Miniprof Agency for the UK & Ireland from January 2019. or telephone 01332 867700.

This now means that all Miniprof instruments will be calibrated and maintained at CoMechs’ specialist calibration Laboratories in Derby and not returned to the manufacturer in Denmark as it does now. This can only be good news for our Users & Customers, giving them reduced downtime, while their unit is being calibrated and serviced.

Comech will also take over the sales of this equipment too, making it a ‘one stop shop’ for all your Miniprof needs and support. We have been working with Greenwood Engineering for over 18 years now, building up a sustainable Agency in the UK for this world-renowned Miniprof profile measuring instrumentation. We have supported the Users of these instruments as the Miniprof has developed over the years, to what is now recognised as the most accurate contact measuring instrument to support both wheel and rail profiling.

It has always been our vision to eventually calibrate and service these instruments in the UK, therefore the opportunity that CoMech has given the project and manufacturer to do this is excellent news for everyone.

Greenwoods, Comech and ourselves have been working very hard together over the months to make sure this transition goes across as smoothly as possible at the end of December. Bakerail’s in depth knowledge of these instruments has developed over many years working in the specialist wheel / rail interface engineering areas of the rail industry and we will be working very closely with CoMechs’ mechanical engineers over the coming months to support them in their new venture.

It goes without saying, that Bakerail Services are continuing to run as a Wheel/Rail Specialist Consultancy, so semi-retirement now!

However, Paul and myself can only thank you all for your on-going support with this Miniprof project over the years and to say that we have very much enjoyed working with you all. Our paths may well cross on other projects and we are here to help and support where we can.

We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a Healthy and Prosperous New Year.
