voestalpine to become a full-service provider of fully digitalized railway lines worldwide
Faster trains, growing passenger numbers, and increased security requirements face rail operators with ever new challenges. The Metal Engineering Division of the voestalpine Group is already a global leader in high-quality rails, high-tech turnouts, and digital monitoring systems. Now the Group is bundling these competencies under the “Railway Systems” brand, becoming a worldwide provider of complete systems for railway infrastructures. The new segment covers around 7,000 employees at 70 production and sales locations on all five continents, who together generated revenue of EUR 1.4 billion during the past business year. With the global trend towards urbanization and the expansion of public transport networks, an average annual growth of almost three percent is forecast.
