Tradition in the railway industry
In the beginning it was the repair shop of the Halberstadt-Blankenburg Railway (HBE): today's Vehicle and development plantk Blankenburg GmbH (Harz). The partly historical workshops have an eventful history.
Today FEW concentrates and works in the field of repair and maintenance of rail vehicles for freight traffic. Our maintenance services, products and mobile services sustainably improve the availability, reliability and service life of our customers' rail vehicles. Maintenance costs for freight rail vehicles with a service life of more than 30 years can ultimately be as high as the initial investment. Effective maintenance and repair therefore influences both direct maintenance costs and service life. We use the entire experience of our employees to develop optimal solutions.
