Your contact partner

Jakob Laukert
(Head of department track construction machines)

Thanks to the thirteen universal installation machines, we can carry out restamping and delivery work with no problems.

This is because the wooden and concrete sleepers are welded and can be handled in one piece, which means that we are able to install large-curve pre-mounted switches and switch parts with concrete sleepers. Just contact me if you want any more information about the equipment and how it is used in practice.
