Texelis, world leader in traction systems for rubber-tyred metros and tramways, has new ambitions for its co-operation with Mexico City Metro. Both as an OEM producer and turnkey services provider.
20 years of collaboration in modernising Mexico City’s fleets. More than 2,000 traction systems already supplied. Serving NM02 and NM16 rolling stocks for lines 2 and 7.
In 2021, Texelis was awarded a 2-year contract to supply 1,044 axles to CRRC Zhuzhou for Mexico City Metro Line 1.
“Mexico City Metro has always been a key market for Texelis development on the rubber-tyred division. Mexico is also allowing us to partner with new rolling stock manufacturers such as CRRC and become a long-term player in their supply chain, hence opening new doors for future collaboration.
“Texelis also sees Mexico as a key industrial base for a possible manufacturing site for streetcars, trucks and traction systems to better serve our US and Canadian transit systems.”
The Texelis Mexico branch was established in 2021 to strengthen the special relationship enjoyed by the two entities. This will allow us to offer the best local support and get access to local tenders. The local entity will act as a key OEM and services supplier to the metro.
Texelis has a commitment to help Mexico City Metro to extend existing bogie lifecycles and adapt the traction systems to the older rolling stock.
Texelis proudly supports 13 local engineering universities through a local partnership in technical research.
Contributing to creating Mexico’s railway engineering forces of tomorrow is a commitment we wanted to make to ensure a win-win collaboration in the country.
Texelis is very active within the Americas and has a strong presence in most of the continent’s countries. Running urban rail networks is a real focus for Texelis. To offer the best maintenance solutions, Texelis has developed a local partner network.
As a result, Texelis has been growing its presence in transit systems in America:
