Excellent solutions for the changing railway market
The global railway market is faced with new competitors and sales drivers. The growth motor is not necessarily railway vehicles anymore, but the after-market and service business. For many years, individual solutions were developed; today, the focus is on modular solutions, platforms and cooperation ventures. This is the only way railway companies can counteract the increasing price and offer pressure. Furthermore, digitalization is shifting the value add. Our experts can offer tailor-made solutions for your company based on our many years of experience in the industry and are able to implement them as well.
In order for product optimization to be viable in the future, the availability of know-how and the necessary comparison data is what makes the difference to improve the complete product range regarding material selection and production processes. To ensure that h&z will continue to find a cost-efficient and effective solution for new and existing products, we conduct an in-depth investigation into your customer orientation, modularization and standardization. The insights we gain form the basis for a precise measure catalog.
Many companies have not sufficiently realized the potential of aftermarket services. To highlight these potentials and to bundle the right measures is at the core of our activity in this area.
