PLANNING ACTIVITY - LOOK FORWARD
We started making points more than thirty years ago. And our strength was our power of innovation. We wanted to build points with that something extra, and the result is safer points with excellent features. Today each point that we build results from an advanced 3d-fem and cad-cam analysis of its crucial components. We think that is a good idea to design a point to the owner’s requirements, and to ensure improved safety for rail transportation. Manufacturing points means carrying out a public responsibility.
