About King Rail
The King Group was first formed 60 years ago in 1962 by Canadian engineer Vern King. They operate from a large site in Market Harborough, Leicestershire, and employ over 80 people across all arms of the business.
The company started out by establishing themselves as a leading builder of bespoke trailers, which still forms the core of the business to this day. More recently King Rail was formed, a division that focuses on rail safety, equipment testing, converting and upgrading of road rail vehicles.
In 2016, King were acquired by H W Martin, who have streamlined the business and ushered in a period of strong strategic growth.
