Jochen Riepl, the CEO of Rail.One, officially launched company’s operation of its new concrete sleeper plant in Aschaffenburg, Bavaria.
The new facility has a 35,000 square meters area, which will support a production capacity of 600,000 concrete sleepers per year and a storage capacity for 120,000 sleepers.
After almost three years of planning and construction, Rail.One’s latest concrete sleeper plant marks an important milestone in the corporate strategy. The products are primarily addressed to the German railway network, as Deutsche Bahn is company’s most important client in Germany.
“Our new location is a very important addition to our other production facilities in Germany and is therefore important for the long-term success of our entire Group. We are still able to support our most important customer, Deutsche Bahn, with four locations. Upholding our tradition and our reputation, we will reliably supply high-quality products for new construction, expansion and maintenance of the German rail network from this plant as well,” Riepl said.
In addition to the B 70 sleepers that are widely-used in Germany, the plant also produces numerous other types of main-track sleepers and products for German and European urban transit and mainline rail traffic. It supplements the three other German locations in Coswig, Kirchmöser and Neumarkt, each of which have their own specific production processes and product portfolios.
