New Vossloh service company in Italy
The founding of Vossloh Rail Services Italia S.r.l. is both a consequence of the positive market development and part of Vossloh’s firm focus as an expert in asset management. Vossloh is now pooling its customer-specific resources in Italy as well in order to meet current and future requirements of rail networks and ensure the best track availability possible at reduced life-cycle costs.
The Italian subsidiary Vossloh Rail Services Italia was founded on the 6th of May this year. The service business began for Vossloh with the introduction of milling solutions, which paved the way for preventive rail maintenance. Operations with the Flexis system followed, and today the HSG-city is in service on various local transport lines. “More and more, our customers are keeping an eye on life cycle costs and availability, and consequently our service business in Italy is developing extremely well”, says Andrea Bono. VRS Italia’s managing director is looking forward to a promising future. “Our aim is to use our all-encompassing expertise in rail infrastructure to provide our customers with comprehensive support. By giving customers maximum insight into the interdependencies of track infrastructure, we can offer them tailored maintenance measures thanks to our own fleet of machines and the personnel we have available.”
A recently signed annual contract with an Italian mass transit operator for diagnostic and grinding services is a fitting confirmation of this approach. “Condition-based, customer-specific rail machining is key to our growth strategy”, Andrea Bono continues. “We therefore truly welcome this opportunity to thoroughly test out our smart digitalization solutions for surveying the condition of rails.” The status data is analyzed and used to present various maintenance scenarios and their costs in a way that allows network operators to easily decide where, when and what kind of machining work is required.
Vossloh Rail Services Italia is positioning itself as a provider of customized asset management solutions that provide customers with genuine added value in terms of the availability and safety of turnout and track systems at an optimized budget.
