Trelleborg wins contract as part of Jubilee line overhaul

Trelleborg Industrial AVS has been awarded a contract worth more than £2m to supply Metalastik components for both the primary and secondary suspension on the 63 trains that make up London Underground’s Jubilee line.

The original suspension components, which were supplied by the company in 1995, are now undergoing a comprehensive overhaul under the new contract.

Trelleborg’s Metalastik chevrons act as the primary suspension, while Hourglass springs act as the secondary suspension. The company is also supplying the centre pivot bushes together with auxiliary bogie components.
