Journeo on board with £900,000 Northern deal

Journeo, the Ashby firm which makes information systems and signage for transport firm and hubs, has won a £900,000 contract with Northern Trains.

Northern has recently started a programme to replace and upgrade the passenger information displays in all its stations.

The deal will see Journeo supply around 200 displays and follows on from orders received by Infotec prior to its acquisition by Journeo, where over 300 displays have been manufactured and shipped in the last 12 months.

The display systems are scheduled to enter production during H2 2023 with revenue recognised late in Q4 2023 and early Q1 2024 and are included in management’s expectations of performance for FY2023.

Russ Singleton, chief executive of Journeo, said: “I am delighted to see the continuation of the relationship with Northern, following the acquisition of Infotec by Journeo. Across the board, customers have been welcoming of the change and we are beginning to see the resulting growth of Group revenues, order book and sales pipeline.

“By continuing to place orders for our high-performance displays, Northern know that they are investing in a solution that is robust and reliable, with the backing of a larger group and technical development force, and access to the full suite of Journeo products, software and services for larger or more complex projects in future.”
