Passengers want to reach their destination safely and in comfort. Companies want to transport freight economically and on time. And network operators require a railway network with a long service life which can be run profitably without operational restrictions.
The railways are the most reliable, comfortable, economic and ecological way to transport people and goods. They are therefore an integral part of all viable and sustainable mobility concepts. But this requires reliable railway tracks with a long service life. Many railway organizations such as Amtrak in the US, the Chinese National Railway and the light rail networks in Europe operate their trains and trams on Goldschmidt expertise. Around the world, high-speed trains, freight trains, heavy haul trains, trams und underground railways glide over continuously welded track. This is made possible by the Thermit® welding process which enables Goldschmidt to make an excellent connection between almost all types of rail.
