It was 5 years ago today (20th December 2012) that the acquisition of TRE (The Railway Engineering Co.) occurred and the start of a journey within the Hitachi family.
So many things have happened within the last 5 years. We have opened and expanded the office our office in Derby to mobilise and deliver the Thameslink Traffic Management System as well as accommodating a number of other non-TMS projects. In 2015 TRE was re-branded where we adopted the Hitachi brand and changed the company name to Hitachi Information Control Systems Europe Ltd (HICSE). As we adopted the Hitachi brand, our online presence on the social media platforms and our new website, has improved significantly.
We have seen a number of innovations in the HICSE product set which are seeing real successes, such as the recent TREsure, TREmodel and Dessan delivery projects.
Over the last 5 years, our headcount has increased by 300% which shows the success of HICSE and the huge efforts from all of the staff throughout the business.
To celebrate this milestone, a delivery of cake to each of the three offices had been arranged and enjoyed by all.
Here's to the next 5 years!
