DANOBATGROUP will supply Greenbrier Rail Services with two cutting-edge pieces of equipment for its railway axle maintenance depots. The order for a portal lathe for re-profiling wheel sets and a high performance grinding machine for axle machining reinforces the group commitment to the North American market.
Both developments will give Greenbrier first level new machinery, cutting-edge technology and greater automation in its processes. The order includes preventive maintenance, the installation, assembly and necessary training to handle the equipment.
For the European firm, this contract endorses its commitment to the North American market, which is one of its priorities in its strategy and where it aims to achieve sustainable growth. In fact, in 2014, the United States became the leading market for DANOBATGROUP in volume of orders.
The group has an order portfolio in excess of 150 million dollars in the railway sector. According to Mikel Alvarez, DANOBAT Sales & Marketing Director, the contract with Greenbrier “represents a new and important step in establishing DANOBATGROUP in the United States”. “It is a priority market for us, in which we have been present for two decades and in which we are committed to sustainable growth”, Alvarez indicated.
