The Euroguarco Group aims to bring together the products and knowledge of its member companies to provide the rail industry with integrated, customisable train interiors solutions that save time, space and money.
We’re pleased to announce the creation of the Euroguarco Group, which brings together the expertise of three highly renowned Italian companies with over 50 years of experience in the rail industry.
The newly created corporate group consists of Euroguarco S.p.a., Intersys S.r.l. and Eurorail S.r.l., and operates in partnership with S.B.F. Engineering S.r.l..
This new commercial entity was created with the aim of developing integrated solutions that provide additional value to customers.
“Our companies and products greatly complement each other and by coming together as a corporate group we can amalgamate our experience, skills and greatly enlarge our product portfolio.”
“It’s about creating synergies.
“Working together we can co-design new concepts and solutions for our customers and grow from a supplier to a solutions provider.
“Instead of separately buying ceilings, LED light systems, air ducts etc, our customers can come to the group, tell us what they need and we’ll go away and work together to create a single, integrated and customised solution for them.”
Simply put, the Euroguarco group provides a ‘one-stop shop’ for rolling stock manufacturers.
“I don’t believe there’s any other group – in Europe at least – that has the same expertise and product portfolio. We specialise in ceilings, floors... and many more aspects of interiors from toilets to doors. We also bring to the table specialist engineering capacities.”
Working with a single partner on an integrated solution offers many benefits, from reduced management, lead and installation times through to optimisation of train space.
“Euroguarco group brings the most value when we come on board right at the start of any given project.
“Because we bring our three companies – plus SBF’s engineering knowledge – to the table, we’re able to provide real value by optimising the solution at the start. Plus, you only have to raise one PO and Euroguarco Group will take care of engineering the entire solution.”
“In particular we can offer huge savings in installation time. Instead of having all the single parts of the floors or of the ceiling delivered separately, the group will provide the customer with a pre-fitted industrialised product that can be installed in one sitting.
“Even as stand-alone organisations we’re leading the way in this area. Our latest flooring solution takes 80 percent less time to install than other solutions.”
The Euroguarco Group can provide a wide range of solutions to rail manufacturers, but to give an
idea of what is possible – and the benefits gained – it has created a ‘showcase concept’ of a potential customer solution. This is the pre-fitted integrated air duct.
Electrical cable trays can be integrated into the low-weight air duct, with cables pre-fitted and utilities pre-connected at Euroguarco Group’s workshop in Italy. This is also possible for the ceiling panel – in either a sandwich or thermoplastic material – and also any screens and utilities the customer requires.
Finally, customisable LED lights can also be pre-assembled and cabled before being pre-fitted into the air duct.
“This is a completely customisable solution that can be tailored to meet the available space and shape of customers’ cars, but provides an outline of what we can offer when our companies – and therefore our products and knowledge – come together as one.”
