Other Industry consists of Duroc Rail and Duroc Laser Coatings.
Duroc Rail delivers qualified maintenance of railway wheels for locomotives and railway wagons to rail operators in mainly the Swedish market. With efficient wheel maintenance, Duroc Rail contributes to reduced operating costs per transported kilometer. The profitability of Duroc Rail has historically been good and stable, which has been possible through large, continuous investments in operations.
INCREASED DEMAND FOR MAINTENANCE
Duroc caters the northern part of the Swedish railways maintenance market. The supply of iron ore in Norrland means large volumes of heavy transport, which results in constant wear of rail wheels. Focusing on environmental issues also increases rail traffic, both in terms of transport of people and goods. Increased rail traffic, higher axle loads and faster trains increase demand for wheels, rail and maintenance with high quality and performance. The number of variants of pairs of wheels has increased significantly over the last five years, with higher demand on the maintenance suppliers as a consequence. Duroc Rail has a strength in being able to adapt quickly to changes in the market.
