"Tenmat has become aware of comments made in the market place by a company not affiliated with Tenmat regarding the ownership of RAILKO and RAILKO Marine.

"Consequently, Tenmat would like to make very clear its position regarding the ownership and manufacture of the RAILKO range of products.

"TENMAT of Trafford Park, Manchester, England acquired RAILKO in 2007 and TENMAT is the only place where genuine RAILKO materials and components are manufactured. This includes our main products RAILKO NF 21 and NF22, which are used in significant volumes around the world and are heavily specified in the marine and rail markets.

"TENMAT is the sole owner of RAILKO, and all RAILKO brands including RAILKO MARINE, in particular RAILKO NF 21/22, which is extensively used in the MARINE industry. TENMAT also owns all the RAILKO trademarks and intellectual property associated with all RAILKO products.

"No other company manufactures RAILKO products including NF21/22, nor do they have any rights to the RAILKO trademark without Tenmat’s authorisation, which is only granted if a customer purchases RAILKO products from TENMAT.

"TENMAT manufacture and supply RAILKO products direct to the market place to end users, hence if you want to be assured of receiving genuine parts at the most competitive prices, then buying direct from TENMAT is the most efficient way to purchase RAILKO products."
