On Track For Rail Components
Voith investing in new rail vehicle component plant in China
Voith is investing €25 million in the construction of a new plant for rail vehicle components in Shanghai. Groundbreaking is expected in December 2014, with production set to start in spring 2016.
The opening of the new plant is meant to boost the step-by-step expansion of rail vehicle component production in China for the Asia-Pacific region. The new production line will encompass an area of 10 000 m2. In addition, Voith will set up an engineering center to develop and adapt components on-site to meet local customer requirements.
Voith Turbo already has assembly and production sites for rail and commercial vehicle drive components, which was opened in 2007 at the Xinzhuang Industrial Park in the Minhang District of Shanghai.
