Main Line Rail is the main business of Thales in Austria. Customers at both the national and international levels can rely on extensive experience and unparalleled skills in the implementation of wide-ranging projects, including turn-key projects. Due to its innovation and international commitment, the team at the Vienna facility was awarded the status of a competence centre within the Group back in the mid-1990s. The products and systems in operation range from electronic interlocking systems over train control and traffic management systems, field elements, like point machines, axle counters and signals (LED) up to safety and security management systems, like check points, automatic signal controlled warning systems, access control systems and supervision systems.
In order to create the best solutions for its customers, Thales relies on long-term relationships. In 2016, Thales is to celebrate 25 years in the Hungarian market. All these years, Thales has been able to establish itself not only as the market leader in the field of signalling and train control technology, but has also, as a result of a strong Austrian-Hungarian cooperation, played a major role in creating the infrastructural and operational preconditions for rail transport to become more efficient and more attractive for both passengers and freight.
I am convinced that high-performance and competitive public transportation networks are indispensable fundamental prerequisites for sustainable and prosperous commercial and social development. In Austria. In Europe. Worldwide. Our team in Austria is driven by the motto “get the best out of your infrastructure”. We have made it our key mission to make important professional and innovative contributions to modern, ecologically sound and commercially viable mobility. DI Dr. Alfred Veider, CEO Thales Austria
