Mosdorfer Rail Ltd

Two Years of Knill Gruppe Ownership

It has now been two years since Knill Gruppe completed the acquisition of PFISTERER Rail and the business is continuing to thrive under the new ownership.

Renamed as Mosdorfer Rail, the business has adjusted to the new environment and is flourishing as a key member of this family-owned organisation with over 300 years of experience within the Engineering sector.

Firstly, a bit about the Knill Gruppe and its fascinating history. The Knill Gruppe, based in Weiz, Austria; has 29 companies in 17 different countries and specialises in products and systems for the energy, communication and mobility infrastructure. The business employs over 2,300 employees worldwide, with an annual turnover of over 440 MEur. The business ethos is to think and act in generations and not in quarterly reports, putting focus on securing the long- term future instead of maximising results in the short-term.

Knill Gruppe began in the year 1712, forging blades in the town of Weiz, Austria. Through the years the company product portfolio has changed from blades, sickles and scythes to power distribution and transmission and technology products and today the Group can be associated with ownership of established brands such as Mosdorfer, Lorünser, Damp, Elsta, Gridpulse, Almatec, Rosendahl, Nextrom and now Mosdorfer Rail (formally PFISTERER Rail) which is the first venture of Knill Gruppe into the Railway market.

So, what does this new ownership and environment mean for Mosdorfer Rail?

Firstly, the railway business and management of the business remains the same as old with just the ownership changing. All railway manufacturing locations and personnel have been retained by the Knill Gruppe, with production facilities based in Barcelona, Spain (Railway Catenary Systems); Sheffield, UK (Tensorex C+) and Milan, Italy (Research & Development) continuing to operate with even greater focus on engineering excellence and quality. Railway products, systems and solutions previously available from PFISTERER are now part of Mosdorfer Rail portfolio and brand. However, the Mosdorfer Rail business has also been significantly strengthened by the synergies, manufacturing, and engineering capability already held within Knill Gruppe.

This, coupled with a business ethos centred around engineering excellence and quality, has result in a perfect fit!
