About Us
Nunno Peter.JPG


From our humble beginnings as Axiom Plant Hire in 1971, our founder Peter Schembri began providing backhoes to replace sleepers for the Victorian railways. Peter had the foresight to see that the future of rail maintenance and construction was going to rely more and more on the use of heavy plant and machinery.


Peter quickly positioned the company to meet this growing need. From that we developed our expertise in sleeper replacement and other track maintenance activities and grew our fleet.

About Us 3

We changed our name to Rail Maintenance Services Pty Ltd (RMS) and further invested in new machines and specialised attachments. Mindful of the needs of our clients, our technical team scoured Australia and the world for the latest innovations in plant and equipment to provide our clients more efficient, cost and time saving solutions. This strategy continues today.
