After-Sales Service

Just the beginning of a long-term relationship – when a locomotive leaves the Schalke manufacturing plant, it signifies the beginning of its working life with the customer. However, the engineers and technicians at Schalke accompany the locomotive throughout its entire life cycle. Servicing, maintenance and useful updates are integral parts of the comprehensive after-sales service Schalke provides.

Long-Term Partnership

Schalke locomotives are not only high-performance workhorses – they are also robust investment goods. Their service lives are calculated at 25 to 30 years, guaranteeing continual yields and low downtimes. In other words, they stand for long-term reliability.

Under these circumstances, professional after-sales service takes on an entirely new level of significance. When a locomotive leaves the Schalke plant, it is not the end of a technical relationship, but merely the first step. Schalke continues to offer after-sales support throughout the product’s entire life cycle – with a complete service concept.

Furthermore, Schalke is always ready to provide technical support and advise its customers on-site.
