German Railway Industry Association (VDB)

 

The German Railway Industry Association (VDB) unites the manufacturers of all products for the railway operation – i.e. manufacturers of vehicles, control and safety technologies, infrastructure as well as the suppliers and service companies belonging to them. VDB organises the expert exchange of experiences of the members and bundles the interests of the branch. What will become more and more important for the future is the representation of interests towards politics, customers, media, financial institutions and other associations – both nationally and internationally. Furthermore, VDB is engaged in a fair and cooperative business relation between the system houses and the supplying industry. All this is strengthening the Association and thus the whole railway industry.
