What is Ria?

RIA is the voice of the UK rail supply community; the national trade association for UK-based suppliers to the railway industry. 

Established over 140 years ago, RIA now has over 300 member companies from across the supply chain, over 60% of which are small or medium sized enterprises (SMEs). Our member companies represent a large proportion of the rail industry by turnover, reflect a great diversity of disciplines within the sector and cover the lengths and breadths of the UK.
