    Global market leader voestalpine acquires railway competence center in Australia

    The voestalpine Group continues to extend its global leadership in the railway infrastructure sector and has agreed to acquire the Bathurst Rail Fabrication Center (BRFC) located in Australia. This specialist for high-quality welded rails, turnouts, and track components has a staff of around 60 employees and generated annual revenue of around EUR 34 million last year. With its turnout and rail welding plant, BRFC is the key railway competence center for Sydney Trains which in turn operates a majority of the railway network in the Australian state of New South Wales.

    voestalpine with jump in earnings in the first half of the business year

    Despite a persistently challenging economic climate, the voestalpine Group posted a largely solid performance during the first half of the business year 2014/15 (April 1, to September 30, 2014). The business year started with optimistic economic forecasts for the mature economies and mixed expectations for the emerging markets. However, measured against these expectations, and excepting North America and China, the global economic trend cooled down in the course of the first six months. "Nevertheless, in view of the increasingly challenging environment, voestalpine Group performance during the first half of the business year was at a most satisfactory level," says Dr. Wolfgang Eder, Chairman of the voestalpine Group. A key reason for this result is the Group's broad geographical base and presence in a wide range of industries. The consistent strategic focus on global quality and technology leadership for demanding niche products, and the focus on consistently lengthening the value chain in all business segments, is a guarantee of success.

    Historical Exhibit 1938-1945 – voestalpine opens place of remembrance

    In a new permanent exhibit voestalpine considers the fate of laborers under the National Socialist regime, forced to work at the Reichswerke Hermann Göring in Linz, the site of today’s voestalpine Group headquarters. The exhibit is based on recent research as well as an examination of 38,000 National Socialist personnel files and salary slips. The historical exhibit marks another important step in voestalpine’s process of appraisal of National Socialism, coming to grips with its own past and accepting responsibility for its own history.
