Ukrainian industrial company INTERPIPE has signed a long-term contract for the supply of self-assembled freight wheelsets for INVEHO UFO, one of the largest car building and car repair companies in France.
The contract provides for the production in Ukraine and the supply of 1,530 wheelsets of the ULT-25 design for a French client until September 2022.
INVEHO UFO will use these caps to build new freight cars.
The ULT-25 wheelsets were developed by INTERPIPE engineers for the European gauge and are in demand not only among customers in France, but also in Germany and other European countries. Alexander Garkavy, Director of INTERPIPE Railway Products Division:
- The French company INVEHO UFO is our regular customer, Interpipe has already shipped large orders to him twice. The ULT-25 wheelset is one of the most popular designs on the European freight train market, with speeds up to 120 km /h. The low-stress design of the wheel disc increases its wear resistance and prolongs the product life cycle. We hope to not only preserve, but expand our cooperation with INVEHO UFO with other types of products. About the company:
