Voss‌loh Lo‌co‌mo‌ti‌ves as an employer

With a long tradition to look back on, this German company is setting standards internationally with one of the most modern locomotive works in Europe and a close-knit network of several service centers in different countries. Vossloh Locomotives is also paving the way as an employer by placing a high priority on corporate health management. The secret to its success lies in its combination of wide-ranging expertise, long years of experience, state-of-the-art technical equipment and a corporate culture of putting teamwork into practice.

While Vossloh Locomotives in Kiel designs and manufactures high-class locomotives for the whole of Europe, the service center in Moers concentrates on the repair and maintenance of locomotives – our own and those of other manufacturers. The service support locations in France and Italy operate under the name of IMATEQ and are proving their worth as centralized multipliers of the company’s service capabilities.

Locomotive manufacturing in Kiel already has a hundred years of history behind it. Through its incorporation under the new parent company CRRC ZELC in 2020, Vossloh Locomotives has now started a new international chapter of its story. CRRC ZELC is a subsidiary of the China Railway Rolling Stock Corporation Ltd. (CRRC), the largest rail vehicle manufacturer in the world. The focus here is on modernization concepts for transport operations that are green and intelligent. This partnership with Vossloh Locomotives marks the ideal strategy heading into the future.
