PRM Group took part in the 15th African international conference and specialized exhibition of the rail industry in Johannesburg (South Africa) from 25 to 28 June this year.
The exhibition had an exposition of RPM Group. The delegation included representatives from the Directorate of Export of the Company. Members of our delegation held a series of meetings with the leading South African and international companies, during which issues concerning cooperation and international supply of the track equipment were considered.
«Africa Rail» is the only specialized conference / exhibition of the rail industry on the African continent. The main purpose of the forum «Africa Rail» is to contribute to the improvement of railway networks in Africa. Working in partnership with the leading global rail market players, the organizers of «Africa Rail» plan to contribute to the achievement of this goal. The exhibition and conference joined official representatives of the national railways and major companies of South Africa, Namibia, Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania, Egypt, Ethiopia, and Mozambique. Traditionally established companies of the UK, the USA and Australia were present here.
Participation in the exhibition showed that railway equipment of RPM Group and Russian technology of track laying attract the attention of design consultation, construction and service companies of South Africa and may be in demand in the African market and take its niche.
Following the mission of a strategic partner of Russian Railways OJSC, and in its face, the Russian state, RPM Group is to become a global market player of track engineering.
