MTC has been acquired by Wabtec Corporation, a leading supplier of value-added, technology-based products and services for freight rail, passenger transit and select industrial markets worldwide, with more than 13,000 employees and over 50 manufacturing facilities supplying highly engineered components to over 100 countries.

Wabtec manufactures a range of products for locomotives, freight cars and passenger transit vehicles and also builds new switcher and commuter locomotives and provides aftermarket and maintenance services through its subsidiaries and facilities located throughout the world.

This way, MTC expands in key markets with key customers and will be able to grow the business by integrating its products into the Wabtec distribution channels, especially in North America.

Metalocaucho won in 2013 the Tender for the overhaul of KHI’s C371 railcar bogies’ primary suspensions.

Further to the contract award, MTC developed the part and supplied 36 prototypes for TRTC’s analysis.

MTC is glad to announce that, after successful results of dynamic tests and test runs, TRTC has given green light to MTC to start serial deliveries.

As part of this project MTC will supply 2,128 units of Conical Primary springs, through its appointed distributor in Taiwan.

The delivery will take place between 2014 and 2016 and the parts will be manufactured in MTC’s production facilities in Suzhou, China.

MTC China is an homologated supplier to Alstom, Bombardier and CSR/ CNR group and has been supplying primary and secondary suspension components and elastomeric parts for domestic projects in China and for the export markets since 2007. 

 

In 2013 Metalocaucho won a contract from SIEMENS for the supply of several suspension components for Deutsche Bahn's (DB) next-generation ICx high-speed trains.

In January 2014 Metalocaucho passed SIEMENS and DB’s Audit and FAI (First Article Inspection) and is now ready to deliver the first serial parts.

Under the present contract, Metalocaucho will supply suspension components for 130 trains between 2014 and 2021, with options to supply similar systems for 90 and 80 additional trains between 2021 and 2032.

The contract includes the supply of the Primary guiding bush suspension, a part developed especially for the strict performance requirements of ICx, a high-speed train designed to run at over 250 km/h.  Metalocaucho’s know-how and long proven experience on this kind of primary suspension were key in securing this contract.

Metalocaucho’s General Manager, Antxon San Vicente, considers “It’s very important for MTC to be part of the ICx project, which will be the backbone of intercity traffic in Germany over the next 40 years. This order  confirms MTC’s strategy and long term commitment to develop a strong presence in Germany, one of our key markets”.
