SWEDEN: Vossloh has signed an agreement to acquire Scandinavian Track Group, which provides rail infrastructure maintenance services in the ‘fast-growing and strategically important’ Swedish market.

STG’s activities include turnout installation and maintenance, rail welding, component refurbishment and track inspection services, with 120 employees and sales of €22·3m in 2023.

Vossloh said the acquisition ‘fits seamlessly’ into its sustainability strategy, and positions it in the complete value chain of turnout services.
