RAILWAY-SPECIFIC

PRODUCTS

Alongside mechanical engineering, the railway sector is a further key focus for us. We have been a supplier to Deutsche Bahn AG for many years. We are certified to do so to the quality and supplier status Q1 and were even awarded “Supplier of the Year” by DB in 2003 and 2016. In addition, we supply to other companies that manufacture or repair rail vehicles and are thus to be considered as an absolute specialist in railway-specific C-parts management.

Deutsche Bahn

LIKE A WELL-OILED MACHINE

OVER 20 YEARS OF TEAMWORK

It needs around 24,000 screws to hold the standard railway carriage together. No surprise, then, that we’ve always been busy during our over-20-year relationship with Deutsche Bahn. Especially as we are the sole supplier of around 60 million C-parts to over 400 DB Kanban warehouse sites.

Our products might be invisible to Deutsche Bahn’s passengers. But it is they that hold everything together – from the gearing to the bogies. For this reason, the goal of our collaboration with Deutsche Bahn is to supply all its factories with C-parts and thus keep production and maintenance running.

This is exactly what our comprehensive C-parts management provides: it ensures that the over 10,000 customer-specific products are available to the over 400 DB Kanban warehouses in the right quantities, at the right time and in the high quality typical of us. And it saves costs while doing so: over the course of our collaboration, we reduced the customer’s C-parts procurement costs by 70 %!

A further highlight of the collaboration is the intensive use of our FALCON tool. From the beginning, Deutsche Bahn AG was impressed by our pioneering software solution and was one of the first companies worldwide to put it into extensive use to optimise service for production-controlled material consumption in around 120 production warehouses.

With over 60 million C-parts supplied per year, we have become the sole supplier and look forward to continuing to support Deutsche Bahn in the future with trust, flexibility, innovation and cost-efficiency!
