Germany needs a Strong Rail. The rail industry needs a strong vehicle maintenance. We are facing the future challenges of the rail industry together. By performing maintenance on rail vehicles and components, we are making a crucial contribution to managing the rapid growth in transport in a sustainable way – as maintenance means making the best possible use of current resources.

Throughout Germany, we provide targeted maintenance services at our depots, focusing on our core markets:

  • Maintenance of rail vehicles in the areas of overhaul, projects and accident repair in rail passenger transport.
  • Component reconditioning, for example of engines, Power Packs, brakes, wheel sets, bogies, air-conditioning units and electronics.

We guarantee production resources at all times: 

  • By expanding and creating maintenance capacities, we increase the availability of vehicles and components. With the construction of Europe's most state-of-the-art and environmentally friendly maintenance depot in Cottbus, we are making an important contribution towards this. 
  • Through innovative concepts in full service and the expansion of the "ECM*1-4 competency" we are aligning our services to the requirements of the future. 

We reduce depot turnaround and throughput times:

  • Through the holistic optimisation of our processes and working methods, we are increasing efficiency and quality in the long term. We always avoid waste and ensure competitive costs.
  • We are digitalising maintenance. By using modern technology in our depots, such as 3D printing, we are creating the basis for the digital maintenance of the future.

We are a strong team that ensures a high level of availability of your trains every day – because vehicle availability is a central component for growth on the railways.
