Who are we?

Dual Inventive is a Dutch company, focussed on developing and better utilising the railways of today as a sustainable method of transport for the future. We design, develop and manufacture high tech equipment for the track environment. This is utilised in critical areas such as the taking of track possessions, improving safety of the workforce and the continuous monitoring of the infrastructure.

Our objective is to improve opportunities for working on and around the tracks. We also gather and share live data in a way that reduces the need for workers to access the track which improves the overall efficiency of the railway industry.

The rail network is undergoing its largest transformation in recent history, facing a unique series of challenges. We believe that our products can help operators to meet these challenges, without embarking on huge changes to the infrastructure. We work to innovate, using the latest technologies and applying them to the rail industry.

Building on successful deployments of our products around the UK, Dual Inventive is now looking to accelerate its growth by further establishing its practices, products and services around the country. Together with our team in the UK, supported by our head office in the Netherlands, you will be instrumental in helping this growth happen.
