Working Style & Promises

Adherence to deadlines and consistent project management are not empty promises. Try us! We will notify you within 3 working days as to whether we can process your order and, depending on the scope, we can submit a valid offer within 10 working days.

Know-how and lifelong learning are our greatest assets. We like to share our knowledge and work only on projects where we have a high level of specialist knowledge. We set the bar for collaborations very high.

We love teamwork. As a small business, we can handle projects of any size. We rely on our decades of experience and, if necessary, form working groups based on our global network. Our approach gives us enormous flexibility.

Communication is a key element for our success. Talk to us, and we will listen to you. We use every communication medium, but unfortunately language is sometimes a barrier. That’s why we already have existing cooperation agreements with French, Spanish, Polish, Czech, and Romanian-speaking experts and can also offer short-term project support in these languages.

Vision, Philosophy and Logo

We are committed to advancing railway development to support eco-friendly transportation and aim to contribute to this effort. As engineers we use our creativity and our knowledge. We are convinced that the future lies in intermodal transport and that the railway will play a key role. To us, this is the natural consequence based on clear technical factors. The energy efficiency of wheel and rail is unparalleled, combined with the existing transport capacity, rail vehicles should be used exactly where they are needed.

Our logo pays tribute to our hands-on experience in the interdisciplinary field of RAMS (Reliability, Availability, Maintainability, and Safety), drawing a creative parallel between the acronym’s letters and the mountain animal. We believe that RAMS is an essential part of an overall solution strategy for the railway. And, of course, humour is important in our work. With a twinkle in our eyes, we want to tell you that our company is the GOAT of railway engineering.
