About us

A legacy built on quality, innovation and trust

Plasser India is a subsidiary of the Austrian company Plasser & Theurer, a global leader in the design and manufacture of the most cutting-edge machines for track maintenance, track laying as well track renewal.

Plasser India’s partnership with Indian Railways is more than five decades old, dating back to 1965. That was the year we delivered the first track maintenance machine to Indian Railways. In 1967, we set up our manufacturing plant in Faridabad, and ever since then we have been providing end-to-end solutions for all track maintenance works by constantly driving innovation, eco-friendliness, and the cost efficiency of Indian rail infrastructure.

In 2019, Plasser India set up a new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant in Karjan, Gujarat. In line with the philosophy of further localization, Plasser India also established a new tamping unit manufacturing plant in Karjan in 2021. Equipped with latest state of the art machines and highly qualified teams, it is one of the most advanced manufacturing units in the group.

The Karjan plant conforms to world-class quality, environmental, health & safety standards. It also has Integrated Management System (IMS) certification.

Our manufacturing capacities have multiplied over the years, and by supporting a local supply chain and working with a large Indian supplier base, we are able to provide a high local content in our machines.

We provide machines tailored to our customers’ requirements, with special emphasis on applying the technology most appropriate for the local conditions.

Plasser India currently has a workforce of around 1,600 employees, with a proven track record of having successfully supplied more than 1,000 machines to Indian Railways, railway public sector undertakings, metros, private infrastructure companies, and foreign railways.

We are fully aligned with the country’s vision of “Make in India”, which manifests itself in three ways:

Firstly, we manufacture machines for the domestic market by providing employment and skill development to the people of India. Secondly, we have a team of design engineers who are working exclusively on design jobs for the markets in Austria, the United States, and elsewhere.

Thirdly, today we “Make in India for the World” by exporting our machines to global markets.

We also believe that it is not enough to simply build the best machines. We are also committed to servicing these machines in the best possible way. This belief has slowly transformed Plasser India from a machine supplier to a one-stop solution provider whose approach is “Innovation for You”. We wish to help our customers meet the daily challenges in track laying and maintenance by offering life enhancement services, such as machine and tamping unit overhauls, retrofits, upgrades, critical component repairs, operation, and maintenance.  We have a dedicated service team available 24/7 to ensure that our customers’ machines are always up and running. Our excellent technical support, on-site and off-site training programmes, and supply of original spare and wear parts ensure 100% customer satisfaction, making us the partner of choice.

Today, the rail industry is undergoing dynamic growth and a technological transition at a speed and scale like never seen before. A rail revolution driven by digitalization and sustainability is already on a fast track.

Plasser Smart Maintenance is our contribution to a new era in track construction and maintenance.

It offers an intelligent link between the relevant data on the infrastructure and the machines in real time. The result is a single system enabling excellent fleet management.

Our focus will continue to remain on sustainable, pioneering track-technology solutions, and we are in an excellent position to continue to set ground-breaking standards.

We are ready for the railways of the future!
