The rail supply industry in Austria
By international comparison, the industry actively manufacturing for the railway in Austria starts from a position of way-above-average strength and inventiveness. Its innovative drive is evident in particular in the areas of rails, switches and crossings, track-engineering machines, electric transmissions, running gear and bogies, passenger stock, metro and light rail trains and trams and also in systems for protection, control, command and signalling and communications. What is needed for playing a decisive part as a world leader here in future too – in other words for occupying a top position – is, of course, continuous further developments and innovations with a market impact.
