The Delachaux Group has brought together its rail division businesses under one unified brand: Pandrol, as part of enhancing its commitment to the rail infrastructure market.
The rail companies within the Delachaux Group –including welding, equipment and electrification solutions companies Railtech, specialist rail equipment companies, Vortok, Pandrol CDM Track, Rosenqvist, Matweld, RSS and fastenings systems solution company Pandrol – will come together under the re-energized Pandrol name. The move comes as part of a strategic review, with the objective to create a synergy from the combined strengths of the market leading businesses within the rail division, and to make the products and services more streamlined for customers.
Chief Executive of the Delachaux Group, Guy Talbourdet, explains:
“This move will reinforce our position as a market leading partner to our customers, who will benefit even further from our collaborative approach whilst we ensure that their requirements are met and exceeded. Our rail companies have a strong history of bringing game-changing innovation to the rail industry. We feel that we can generate benefits by being a tier-one partner to our rail operator customers and Pandrol is here to solve our customer’s issues and to co-develop solutions, for short term challenges up to projects including the whole life cycle of rail infrastructure.”
The newly combined Pandrol organisation will be focussed on four key products lines; Fastening Systems, Aluminothermic Welding; Equipment and Control, and Electrification, which will collectively develop and deliver integrated rail infrastructure solutions for customers. As a single entity, the business will look beyond its existing product portfolio to focus on maximising rail infrastructure availability, safety and the lifetime value of rail infrastructure for customers.
Guy Talbourdet continues:
“We want to make the rail industry better, smarter and safer. Customers bring us their biggest rail infrastructure challenges every day. They need an innovative, reliable, responsive rail infrastructure partner, and they know they can trust the Pandrol brand to deliver. Our new structure and strategy allows us to connect our products and co-operate across geographies, advancing the best of our current business to develop products and services beyond the existing range”
The combined organisation has been operating in the rail sector for over a century and has experience delivering rail infrastructure solutions in over 100 countries, with products designed and tested to meet or exceed all relevant industry standards, in whichever country they are specified.
