GE Transportation, an operational unit of General Electric Co. (GE) and EuroMaint Rail recently announced a partnership on rolling stock services and technology for the railway industry that will provide consumers with an expanded range of services.

EuroMaint Rail, with headquarters in Stockholm (Sweden), has more than 100 years of experience in providing maintenance for all types of rolling stock. It is an independent service provider to the rail industry, supplying whole-life services for rolling stock, including infrastructure work machines, component overhaul and logistics solutions.

EuroMaint brings its rolling stock maintenance network, component servicing expertise, spare parts logistics and experience in developing reliable maintenance solutions into the collaboration.
