Plasser & Theurer is ringing in a new age of track maintenance. Along with machines and technologies, the strategic expansion of Customer Services is at the top of the agenda. In July of this year, the new European Distribution Center will open in Linz. It will allow us to secure the original spare part supply chain for our customers. In terms of services, Used Machines stands out as a newly introduced segment. This service will allow customers to purchase used Plasser & Theurer track maintenance machines directly from the manufacturer.
Retrofitting, i.e. the refurbishment and modernisation of older machines, is also one of the fast-growing segments at Plasser & Theurer's Customer Services. Together with the partner network, machines of different shapes and sizes are refurbished and essential features are brought up to the state of the art. The time-tested SSP 110 SW ballast regulating machine is only one example. For tamping machines, such as the Unimat 08-475/4S, this offer comprises an upgrade to the latest tamping technology with a sustainable electric drive. A machine length of 114 m is not an issue: a track relaying train of this length is currently being refurbished in Linz.
