Railway Vehicle Maintenance
SŽ – VIT (SŽ – Vleka in tehnika) provides comprehensive services in the field of railway vehicle maintenance and train traction together with a diverse range of technical wagon services. With a market presence of over 170 years, our extensive experience is carefully combined with present knowledge as we continuously develop our expertise to ensure the best value for our business partners.
Quality maintenance and specialised know-how coupled with notable flexibility and the ability to tackle any challenging request from rail companies across Europe have persuaded many private keepers and state operators to partner with us.
Our qualifications are demonstrated by various certificates, authorisations and approvals, such as ECM, ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001:2015, ISO 50001:2011, VPI, and TSI for the assembly of new wheelsets, while the quality of our work has been verified by some of the biggest keepers of rail vehicles.
Our full service model is designed to provide all services required for the safe and reliable operation of rail vehicles from a single source. We deliver cost-effective maintenance of any type of rail vehicle in the greater area of the crossroads between Corridor V and X, while our traction and technical wagon services are available across the Slovenian rail network.
Integrated Maintenance of Railway Vehicles
We ensure comprehensive maintenance for different types of railway vehicles, including: locomotives, passenger coaches, multiple unit trains, freight wagons and special-purpose vehicles. Our offer ranges from regular maintenance with control checks and overhauls to corrective maintenance. Safety, reliability, unhindered use and progressive availability are paramount when maintaining our partners’ vehicles. We have also been developing and fulfilling other additional high-quality and reliable services.
Renovation and Re-Modelling of All Types of Railway Vehicles
Our know-how and innovation coupled with state-of-the-art tools and skilled staff allow us to tackle the greatest of challenges. We therefore offer not only maintenance and repair of railway vehicles, but also take on the challenge presented by vehicles of various types that need to be renovated, re-modelled, modified, modernised or improved.
Special care is required when dealing with older vehicles. Naturally, regular maintenance alone is not enough to keep vintage vehicles on the tracks, so we make sure to keep them in line with all safety and quality requirements by conducting various renovation works, improving their performance and modernising them on a case-by-case basis in order to keep them in line with their younger counterparts.

Flexibility and better responsiveness to customers’ demands, ideas, and needs are achieved by our own handling of wheelsets and other components according to the latest European standards.
