Given our proven expertise and know-how in the maintenance and upkeep of railway equipment, TMR is able to meet the needs of leading operators in Switzerland and beyond (MGB, TPC, BLS, SNCF, Trentino, etc.). Thanks to our in-house engineering department, we are also at the forefront of railway engineering.
To meet the lasting increase in external and internal demand for refurbishment of rackrailway bogies, TMR SA decided to tackle its future by erecting a centre of competence at Martigny: An investment of 18 million Swiss Francs into a neatly equipped workshop of 11’000 m2 footprint surface, exclusively dedicated to bogie refurbishment.
At our specialised competence centres, we are assure maintenance and service for all types of vehicles, particularly the rolling stock of rack or metre-gauge railways and their components.
Our OCTOFER competence centre, which specialises in bogie maintenance and overhaul, is ideally located at Martigny, the crossroads of the international transalpine routes.
At this modern and fully equipped 11 000 m2 industrial facility, we are meeting the needs of even the most demanding customers.
Our workshop in Vernayaz focuses on the maintenance, servicing and refurbishment of metre-gauge railway vehicles.
Our success over the years is based on our highly specialised and sought-after expertise, which our staff are constantly fine-tuning in a tradition of true craftsmanship.
We handle the entire inspection and overhaul process, from the dismantling of the components to their reassembly, including sandblasting, machining and calibration.
We are able to overhaul specific components, such as axles or gearboxes, in line with your individual needs, and will carry out all the necessary tests.
We handle the maintenance of all your railway vehicles, in particular metre-gauge rolling stock, and are also able to refurbish or upgrade them in line with your specifications.
Our in-house engineering department studies, elaborates and realises infrastructure and civil engineering projects for metre-gauge, rack- and standard-gauge railways.
Our team of engineers, surveyors and draughtsmen masters all of our infrastructure projects and is the partner of choice for many transport operators in French-speaking Switzerland.
We can accommodate all of your needs, from track surveys to route studies, railway engineering plans and the supervision of construction work, in compliance with all applicable standards.
We are analysing the track geometry to propose solutions for optimising the routing (e.g., speed, alignment) and equipment.
In the framework of network planning, we carry out preliminary and feasibility studies, draw up the relevant plans and prepare the official plan approval procedure.
We execute field surveying of existing infrastructure and enter the data in national coordinates.
