Our Strategy 2020

Our vision

To make DB Fahrzeuginstandhaltung the strongest partner in the area of fleet mobility in Europe.“

We want to be a strong partner that not only maintains vehicles and their components across a European network, but also ensures that they remain operable by offering intelligent, interlinked solutions.


Our mission

DB Fahrzeuginstandhaltung optimises rail mobility.“

Guaranteeing high availability of vehicles and components stands at the heart of our efforts. In other words, we have achieved our mission when our customers are moving passengers and goods by rail.


Our five main strategic goals

DB Fahrzeuginstandhaltung is an engineering-centric company. Repairing rail vehicles and manufacturing their components is "in our genes". The way in which we work influences the engineering quality, time and cost. Our processes and systems are designed to make us the most modern and advanced engineering provider in the rail sector. With these and many other factors we achieve our goal of "industrial excellence".

Our focus is on our customers' requirements. We are observing that the competitive pressure among our customers and their need for customised solutions and high vehicle availability are increasing, and that the focus is increasingly on vehicle operation only. This is why we are increasingly investing in the development of new products and services, offering more materials management products in the area of maintenance, for example obsolescence management, and expanding our full service solutions. Our goal is to be your first choice when it comes to finding a strong partner for fleet mobility.

Thanks to our long-standing cooperation with our internal and external customers, we have a high level of expertise in many types of vehicles. We intend to strengthen and build on this expertise through strategic cooperation. Furthermore, by focusing on our marketing efforts and implementing our internationalisation strategy in collaboration with our customers and partners, we will add new products and tap into new markets.

Only with our qualified and committed employees will we achieve our goal of being the strongest partner in the area of fleet mobility in Europe. We ensure that knowledge is passed on to the next generation, build on much sought-after expertise, and create attractive employment conditions and career opportunities within
DB Fahrzeuginstandhaltung and the DB Group as a whole.

We ensure the sustainability of our business by quickly responding to market developments. For example, we combine our engineering expertise in areas where it makes our products more appealing to our customers. We invest in the future viability of our company and strive to continue offering our customers high quality services.

Climate change and the increasing scarcity of resources are among the main challenges in our globalised world. The DB Group takes these challenges very seriously and with its 2020+ strategy has set itself the goal of becoming an eco-pioneer by 2020. Even today rail transport is the most environmentally friendly mode of transport. At
DB Fahrzeuginstandhaltung, we want to contribute to this strategy by establishing a resource-efficient production and developing demand-oriented products that reduce carbon emissions.
