Worldwide fully integrated solutions from a single source – PERFORMANCE ON TRACK®

Advanced materials and geometries combined with state-of-the-art production systems guarantee the highest quality and performance of rails and turnouts. Fully integrated and tailored drive, locking and detection applications optimize the interface between track and signaling components. Intelligent monitoring and diagnostic equipment provide relevant data to improve maintenance activities. They allow for modern asset management of both fixed infrastructure and rolling stock.

Infrastructure managers need integrated solutions, which consider the specific network requirements.

For each area, we are in a position to provide a complete system offer combining the portfolios of rails, turnouts, signaling and track solutions - customized and future-oriented solutions from a single source.

Sharing railroad industry knowledge throughout the world

The basis for our knowledge and ongoing product and process improvements is our international network. More than 60 production and sales facilities on all six continents ensure maximum understanding and knowledge of local conditions and customer demands.

Our railway seminars and training courses in cooperation with partners from the railroad industry, research and education institutions help us to build up and share essential knowledge on using the right products to their fullest potential.

Focus on the life-cycle of products for the railway

We focus on the optimization of life cycle costs through increasing the reliability, availability, maintainability and safety of the asset. The life-cycle strategy starts with surveying the place of installation, continues with transport and installation support and includes service and maintenance as well as reclaiming and recycling of used railway products.

Rail operators need an efficient and competitive infrastructure to compete with other modes of transport. Too often public procurement follows the principle of the cheapest provider. However, ecological criteria and factors such as availability, performance and costs can already be assessed today over the entire lifecycle.

Dr. Jochen Holzfeind, Chief Technology Officer voestalpine Railway Systems

The terms RAMS (Reliability, Availability, Maintenance and Safety), LCC (Life Cycle Costs) and CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) have thus been key terms that accompanied our innovative power from the early days but gained more and more importance over recent years.
