High-tech railway systems

Are you a frequent train traveller? Then there is a large chance that the rail material or the set of points have been manufactured by this Austrian company.

The railway systems division of the steel group voestalpine is the market and technology world leader in this sector. The company's high-tech railway points not only set automatically, but also register when overheated train wheels roll over them.

The successes of voestalpine in this sector are well placed as future opportunities in railway networking are large. Many state railways are looking to cover the increasing mobility and transport requirements in their countries and are relying on future-oriented, "Made in Austria" high-technology for their railwork network. 

The railway systems divison at voestalpine continues to grow from strength to strength and in early 2010 the company signed a joint venture contract for the construction of a turnout plant in the Central Turkish province of Cankiri.
