[DE] Battle of the workshops: Railpool acquires KTG GmbH in Duisburg

Lease company Railpool is to take over workshop KTG GmbH, located in Duisburg, near the world’s largest inland port. It is the third workshop for Railpool:

  • 2018: Railpool took over the workshops of Northrail technical service from the Paribus gruppe. Since 01.04.2018 these facilities in Hamburg-Billbrook are active under the brand name Railpool Lok-service;
  • 02.2021: Railpool announced the acquisition of Ajax Loktechnik in Hamburg;
  • 07.2021: KTG take-over;

All three workshops will remain accessible to all customers and locomotives for preventive and corrective services. Railpool has its workshop partner network and a spare parts warehouse, but believes “that its own specialist knowledge and practical expertise on the vehicles are essential for sustained top service quality”.

KTG was founded by Carsten Janneck in 2008. He will continue to lead KTG GmbH as Managing Director.
