The company today
Today, Plasser India manufactures the most up-to-date high performance machines for track maintenance, which are highly sophisticated products.
The machines for Indian Railways are tailor-made designs with special emphasis on applying the technology most appropriate for the local conditions.
Production in India ensures a high indigenous content, using a large number of Indian suppliers. Machines and components are not only manufactured for Indian railways but are also exported. Ircon, for example, is an important customer using complete machine sets for their overseas projects. Machines built by Plasser India have also been supplied to the Chinese Railways.
At the present time there are more than 170 highly qualified staff employed in the Faridabad factory who are specially trained in the manufacture of these machines ; but in fact a much greater number of workers are involved due to the extensive use of Indian suppliers as mentioned before.
Following Plasser’s general policy, special emphasis is given to efficient after-sales service, spare parts supply and prompt availability of technical expertise as and when required.
Furthermore, there is continuous training of specialized and qualified workers who are employed in the field not only in India but also in other parts of the world where their knowledge and skills are being made use of.
With the establishment of Plasser India Pvt. Ltd., a small but specialized, and for India completely new, branch of industry has been created.
Through this firm, the know-how and experience of Plasser & Theurer, the largest manufacturer of track machines in the world, has been made available to the Indian Railways.
