Rejlers wins rail jobs and grows in infrastructure

Report this content

Rejlers has won several assignments that strengthen the company's position as a technology consultant in the rail sector. The initiative is part of Rejlers’ growth strategy and goal to increase the proportion of assignments that contribute to a sustainable society.

Common to the assignments is to contribute to reduced environmental impact through electrified transport and an improved working environment. The assignments span several technical disciplines within Rejlers.

“We collaborate within Rejlers' different areas of expertise to best meet needs and challenges, which strengthens our ambition to be a comprehensive supplier in sustainable urban and rural development," says Henrik Öhrnell, Head of Division Industry and Infrastructure at Rejlers Sweden. 

“An important part of reducing emissions is to expand the railway network and reduce the use of cars with fossil fuels. The transition to a sustainable transport sector requires both competence and innovation, and here we see that Rejlers can contribute a lot," says Jenny Edfast, CEO of Rejlers Sweden.

Rejlers has a strong focus on organic growth and has recruited heavily in the rail sector over the past year, under the leadership of Business Area Manager Anel Bajramovic. The acquisitions of KANtech in Norway and Geosigma in Sweden have further strengthened the company's position in infrastructure. KANtech has specialised expertise in railway technology and major railway projects and Geosigma has leading expertise in rock, hydrogeology, contaminated land and construction.
