Vossloh wins another major order for rail fastening systems in China
Vossloh, a long-established and world-leading supplier of rail infrastructure products and services, has further strengthened its excellent positioning in the Chinese high-speed rail market. For the third time within the last four months, Vossloh has been awarded a contract to supply rail fastening systems for the construction of a new high-speed line. This is the link between the metropolises of Weifang and Yantai, in the eastern Chinese province of Shandong.
The order is worth the equivalent of around €50 million and will be handled by the subsidiary Vossloh Fastening Systems China Co Ltd, based in Kunshan, China. The delivery is scheduled for the years of 2023 and 2024.
