As a means of ensuring improved control, efficiency and cost savings, Inlandsbanan in Östersund has chosen to continue its cooperation with Euromaint regarding consignment stock, while also expanding the agreement to include component processing.

Euromaint Rail currently holds consignment stock on behalf of Inlandsbanan, thereby making storage charges and handling as efficient as possible.

The new assignment means that Euromaint Rail supplies materials for Inlandsbanan's Y1 diesel motor coaches, as well as spare parts for rolling stock, in particular Z65, T43, Di3 and TMX locomotives. 

Inlandsbanan's excellent experience of working with Euromaint led them to choose the company to carry out component processing for bogies, bogie wheels and drive wheels, among other components.

"Our objective for this agreement is to gain even greater control over our stock and over elements of our component processing. Having Euromaint as our partner enables us to focus to a greater extent on our core activities," says Halvar Handler, Workshop and Rolling Stock Manager for Inlandsbanan.

Processing will take place at Euromaint Rail's workshop in Örebro and includes processing of components for Inlandsbanan's Y1, T43 and Z65 rolling stock.

"Inlandsbanan is an important customer for us and their continued confidence in our abilities is always pleasing. We are also extremely pleased to announce the further expansion of cooperation between our two companies to include component processing," says Lelle Cryssanthander, Marketing Manager for Euromaint Rail's Components Business Area.
