Molinari Rail AG

Molinari Rail Group is an independent railway technology company with headquarters in Winterthur (CH) and subsidiaries in Vienna, Schwaz (A) and Dessau (D). The owner-managed group provides tailor-made solutions for the global rail industry and supports customers throughout the entire product life cycle: from the conception and development of vehicles or subsystems, through manufacturing, assembly and commissioning, to certification, maintenance and modernisation. In addition, the medium-sized business realises large-scale projects in the mobility sector. Clients include transport companies, rail vehicle manufacturers, construction companies, banks, leasing companies and public authorities.

Since its foundation in 1994, Molinari Rail has grown successively. In 2005, an engineering competence center was founded in Austria, and since 2016, the company operates its own production site in Germany for the manufacturing, maintenance and modernisation of rolling stock.
