Acquisition by ETF-Eurovia Travaux Ferroviaires
In 2008, Eurovia acquired Vossloh Infrastructure Services, a leading French company in the railway systems industry. As a result, Vossloh became ETF-Eurovia Travaux Ferroviaires. The company employs 1,600 people and focuses on markets in France and the Benelux. Historically (since the late 19th century), urban transit systems - light-rail and underground - are this entity's core competence. Its teams are expert in a complete range of knowledge and skill sets required for the construction of industrial sidings (that is, terminal tracks servicing industrial sites) and the installation and maintenance of catenary wires and electrical traction lines.
With this acquisition, Eurovia has consolidated its position as a pan-European leader with the capacity to undertake all types of road and rail infrastructure mandates, including construction, rehabilitation, and maintenance, in all markets wherever they are located.
