MERMEC brings to market innovative solutions that deliver safe and efficient management of railway infrastructure. We work with the highest integrity, compliance culture and respect for human rights while also reducing the impact of our technology and environmental footprint.
Everyday thousands of railways and rapid transits transport billions of passengers and freight all over the world. They are very different transportation systems with a fundamental need in common: provide exceptional service to their customers. This ultimate goal, required railway companies to introduce a more integrated and innovative approach to their infrastructure management, asking for cutting-edge technologies able to give maintenance crews the ability to work at their full potential and fix problems before they come-to-light. This has been our mission for the past 30 years: helping the world's railways run safe and efficient networks so that their passengers can enjoy pleasant journeys, wherever they are headed.
