Tradition Matters

Boasting a market presence of over 170 years, we combine the know-how and expertise gathered over the time with the latest advances in rail technology, thus creating added value for our business partners.

The origins of SŽ – VIT date back to 1846 when the arrival of Austrian Southern Railway first introduced steam railway to the area of modern Slovenia. Throughout this time, we have kept pace with the development of the railway and rail transport in terms of technology and organisation.

The company transitioned from steam-based to electric traction as the most modern choice of train haulage and expanded the first, largely simplistic maintenance depot to five production centres while utilizing modern inspection facilities to ensure safety and reliability in rail transport.
