Our work with DB Systemtechnik

Working together with DB Systemtechnik, our experts from our Krefeld maintenance depot’s accident repair centre carry out repairs on damaged electric multiple units used in long-distance services. We are planning to set up more accident competence centres at our depots so that we can serve all vehicle types going forward. We naturally offer accident repair services for rail vehicles from other areas too, not only long-distance.
