Over the past forty years Tyler’s have played a crucial role in contributing to the running success of London Underground’s escalator division.

Their commitment to deliver on time and to drawing has ensured our refurbishment projectshave been successfully completed to budget and completion time.

A good working relationship and proactive attitude shown by Tyler’s has proven a valuable resource and has been proven when a quick turn round of components has been required.

Their experience in materials and machining options and advising us on this information has been an invaluable asset.
