On 31 August 2022, the RAILPOOL Group took over Nordisk TogTeknikk AS. With the acquisition, RAILPOOL expands its own workshop capacities to a total of six ECM certified locations in Germany, Norway and Sweden. NTT AS and its 100 % daughter NTT Sverige AB comprise workshops in Oslo, Göteborg and Malmö. All works will remain accessible to all customers and locomotives for preventive and corrective services.
Torsten Lehnert, CEO of RAILPOOL, says: “The inclusion of NTT AS and NTT Sverige AB to our own workshop portfolio underlines our commitment to top quality full-service from a single source for the benefit of our customers. We have a long-standing deep and successful partnership with the NTT AS management and their skilled team, who are servicing in an outstanding quality and reliability our modern locomotive fleet as our trusted partner in the North since the beginning of our rental activities in Scandinavia in 2010. We are therefore very pleased to have them join us in an even stronger connection, complementing RAILPOOL’s top notch rail services for Norway and Sweden.”
Currently, NTT AS has around 50 highly qualified employees who will all join the RAILPOOL Group. Continuity is also secured through the company’s former owners Einar Hageskal and Katri Hageskal, CEO and CFO of Nordisk TogTeknikk AS who both continue to lead NTT AS in their managerial roles.
Einar Hageskal, CEO of NTT AS who also co-founded the company in 2005, says: “NTT AS comprises more than 15 years of experience in preventive and corrective maintenance services. By delivering quality in time to train operators in Norway and Sweden, we have been very successfully developing our business at the workshops in Fjellstallen (Oslo) and Gothenburg, which allowed us to expand and open an additional workshop in Sweden last year.“
The scope of NTT comprises maintenance not only for locomotives, but also for wagons and passenger coaches, such as the RAILPOOL's FlixTrain coaches in Göteborg or Snälltaget coaches in Malmö.
