Knorr-Bremse is undertaking a strategic realignment of its vehicle services business in the Swedish and Scandinavian market. “We are continuing to focus on our core competencies as a key supplier for the railway industry – offering subsystems and components and the related services. For a leading independent rolling stock manufacturer like Stadler, Swedtrac will create substantial added value and drive forward the development of the company. Knorr-Bremse and Stadler have longstanding good business relations at all levels for many years. So, also in the future, Knorr-Bremse will support Swedtrac with subsystems for vehicle refurbishment,” says Klaus Deller, Chairman of the Executive Board of Knorr-Bremse AG and responsible for the Rail Vehicle Systems division.

Swedtrac, with 106 employees, is one of the leading suppliers of vehicle services to Scandinavian train operators and vehicle owners. Knorr-Bremse Nordic Rail Services AB of Lund, Sweden, acquired SWT Swedtrac Sverige AB in 2013. The company specializes in modernizations, refurbishments, overhauls, and incident repairs on complete vehicles.

Jürg Gygax, Executive Vice President of Stadler Service AG, stresses the importance of Swedtrac for Stadler: “Stadler Service is proud to be expanding its modernization activities of existing vehicle fleets with this takeover. This is the perfect way to incorporate our know-how about a wide model range of complete trains and to ensure even greater customer proximity. We are looking forward to be working with the Swedtrac specialists and wish to extend to them a warm welcome.”

Knorr-Bremse has been represented in Sweden since 1919 and operates in Sweden with three sites: Knorr-Bremse Nordic Rail Services in Lund (head office), Swedtrac in Tillberga, and Kalmar Tagkompetens in Kalmar. Knorr-Bremse Nordic Rail Services AB, established in 2002 (former NAF established 1936), is a subsidiary of Knorr-Bremse. The company is responsible for the entire Knorr-Bremse portfolio of products and services for the rail vehicle systems sector in Scandinavia.
