The Wagon Service Ostróda, with its premises in Ostróda in the Warmińsko-Mazurskie Province, is part of the international concern GATX Corporation. We are a separate company 100% owned by GATX Rail Poland Sp. z o.o. We are the largest GATX repair plant in Europe. We also have a branch in Płock.
We build, modernise, adapt, provide maintenance inspections and repair railcars based on the latest, safe, ecological technologies. Our work is accomplished on the basis of the Integrated Management System.
The company’s professional tradition reaches back to the 19th century. The plant serviced railcars at the same site as far back as in 1875. Throughout its history it has been transformed on more than one occasion. For years it operated within the structures of PKP (Polish State Railway Enterprise) and the CPN State Enterprise under the name of DEC ZNTK and, after privatization, it was taken over by the American transportation concern GATX, which maintained its profile.
The plant’s profile:
- Building freight wagons
- Modernising/adapting freight wagons
- Carrying out periodic maintenance inspections
- Carrying out emergency and other routine repairs
- Refurbishment of railway parts
