United Wagon Company Continues to Expand its Presence in International Markets
As part of its export strategy development, the Research and Production Corporation, United Railcar Company, was granted the status of supplier to Deutsche Bahn, reported the holding’s website. Specialists from the largest railway operator in the European Union (DB) conducted an audit of the United Railcar Company and praised the development and production of new car models, and quality assurance of the products, warranty and service.
The Tikhvin Freight Car Building Plant, which is part of the United Railcar Company, also successfully achieved certification in accordance with European standard (EN 15085) ‘Welding of Railway Vehicles and Their Components’. By becoming the Deutsche Bahn supplier and achieving the welding certificate, the Russian railway holding company has greater prospects to enter the European market. At present, the United Railcar Company is the only wagon-building company outside the EU, which has the right to supply wagons to Europe.
Moreover, the Russian corporation won an international tender for the supply of two hundred innovative freight cars for the transportation of large-capacity containers to a Polish logistics operator. The delivery will be carried out step-by-step with the implementation period stated as the end of the second quarter of the next year (it was previously reported that the United Railcar Company supplies wagons with increased carrying capacity and service life). In addition, the new railway company is aiming at the global market.
