The many Iranian railway development projects, such as the metros in Teheran, Esfahan, or Shiraz, constitute major growth opportunities motivating FAIVELEY TRANSPORT to position itself fully on the market by providing its industrial expertise and taking up the challenge jointly with MAPNA.
In due course, the company thus established will provide a basis for development of a services activity (replacement parts, reconditioning, training, etc.), or for local assembly of air conditioning units. It will also provide fresh opportunities for exports from Iran to other countries in the Middle East, such as Bangladesh.
The MAPNA Group is an industrial conglomerate that is present in the energy, transport, and petrochemicals fields. Since it was set up in 1992, it has dealt with more than 60 major projects evaluated at 17 billion euros, including facilities in the energy sector that represent over 49,000 MW.
Faiveley Transport is a world leader in the railway industry that supplies a wide range of onboard equipment, and provides the corresponding services, for rolling stock: brakes and couplings, passenger access systems, air conditioning, current collection, electronic equipment, platform screen doors, etc.
