Major deliveries of switches under the framework agreement are expected from 2022 on.
"This contract is of great importance for Vossloh in several respects. We have been working closely with ProRail for many years and I am honored that this important customer has not only renewed its confidence in us by awarding this framework contract, but has also significantly expanded our business relationship," explains Oliver Schuster, CEO of Vossloh AG. "As part of its tendering process, ProRail also included the aspect of sustainability in its decision, in addition to technical and economic parameters. At Vossloh, we attach great importance to the responsible use of resources and the protection of the environment in the course of our service provision. This commitment is one of the factors that has given us a decisive competitive advantage in the Netherlands."
Within the Vossloh Group, Vossloh Cogifer Kloos belongs to the Customized Modules division. The company, based in Nieuw-Lekkerland, the Netherlands, employs around 30 workers and specializes in the assembly and maintenance of switch systems.
