Until the middle of the 20th century, track laying and track maintenance required heavy manual labour. Work sites were characterised by manual methods of work that made large numbers of staff necessary. Today, railway construction is among the most efficient industrial sectors with the highest level of automation.
The historic achievement of Plasser & Theurer is the significant contribution it has made to this development. Since 1953, we have been setting technological milestones enabling higher working speeds, higher quality of work and, on the bottom line, economic advantages for our customers and the railway.
