Growth – A Continuing Strategy

RCS Australia has a proud history of growth. Since the company was established in 2007 it has grown to become one of the most respected engineering supply companies in the rail industry.

In 2015, RCS Australia purchased SIGSAR, a railway signalling construction group.

The purchase of SIGSAR provides RCS Australia with greater business opportunities in delivering clients with end-to-end signalling project delivery and provides a platform for RCS Australia’s growth into the future.

With its existing experience in delivering rail projects, RCS Australia is now able to perform a ‘One Stop Shop’ for all its client’s signalling requirements.

During RCS Australia’s history we have either worked with a constructor or managed our own installation using subcontractors.

In looking at both the way we deliver projects, and the market demands, we see that an opportunity exists to change the way we deal with construction.

In engaging with RCS Australia to perform Signalling and Communications works, you will receive a consistent and reliable service delivery provider.

Our strong internal processes and procedures demonstrate our commitment to quality, and our experienced team have all the skills to provide the best possible outcomes for your project.
