As an authorized distributor, RAIL.ONE offers composite sleepers from the German company Pioonier GmbH to expand its product range. The sleepers are manufactured exclusively in Germany from sorted and selected recycled plastics. Successful test results of the product at the Technical University of Munich, and the sustainable manufacturing concept, lead to promising future opportunities.
Neumarkt (Germany), September 28, 2021 – With Pioonier's years of experience in the production and further development of composite sleepers, RAIL.ONE has a strong, reliable partner at its side for the expansion of the product range.
The composite sleeper itself is not in competition with the traditional concrete sleeper. Rather, it is seen as a substitute or replacement product for the wooden sleeper. The composite sleeper offers solutions for use on track bridge and switch sections.
"It is important to us to keep up with the current market developments and especially with the topic sustainability. We are proud being able to offer our customers a sustainable product that is also reliable and safe," explains Gerhard Scholz, Senior Business Development Manager at PCM RAIL.ONE AG.
In July 2021, based on the promising test results of the Technical University of Munich, Pioonier had received approval from the Federal Railway Authority for operational testing of the P30 sleeper type for track and, in particular, turnout areas.
Pioonier GmbH develops and manufactures railroad sleepers from plastics that are used exclusively from its own processing plant. So Pioonier is engaged in shaping the future of rail transport with the next generation of composite sleepers made of high-quality recyclable plastics. Using unique patented processing technology, the products exceed the latest requirements of European railroad companies, guaranteeing environmental sustainability and product longevity with the best properties.
