Always forward thinking

At L.B. Foster Europe we are always looking to forge partnerships with brands and businesses that share our goals and ambitions. These are win-win collaborations that bring together expertise and capability to deliver excellence for customers.

The complexities of today’s major infrastructure, construction and engineering projects mean partnerships and strategic collaborations are commonplace. As we continue to drive our business forward we are entering into both formal partnerships and less formal alliances, all with the shared goal of delivering the best for our customers. As these collaborations take shape we are deepening our conversations to understand better our opportunities. These include access to tenders, contracts and projects, as well as widening our networks of contacts and delivering our brand message to new audiences. Peter Jones is the managing director of L.B. Foster Europe:

“Our reputation for local excellence and global delivery is a great conversation starter with tier one consultants and organisations. Our joined up capability is something that is creating interest and excitement, both for us and for our partners. Collaborations are now taking shape with some of the most recognisable names in our markets, including AECOM, WSP and Skanska. This is great positioning for the L.B. Foster brand and no less recognition than it deserves.”

WSP is a globally-recognized professional services firm employing approximately 43,000 people. In the UK we are aligning our business with WSP on a number of major projects including HS2. Sherman Havens is a UK Technical Director at WSP. He says:“L.B. Foster is a great company and we have good experience working together. They possess specific telecoms expertise and experience that fits well with what we’re doing. Innovations such as SMARTStation are very interesting too. It’s these kinds of emerging technologies that are both exciting and a challenge to our architects.”


We are now an official AECOM Innovation Partner. AECOM designs, builds, finances and operates infrastructure assets in more than 150 countries. The business is a global network of experts working with clients, communities and colleagues to develop and implement innovative solutions to the world’s most complex challenges.


Our collaboration with Skanska is embedded in the rail industry, working on projects including London Waterloo resignalling.
