ALSTOM ACQUIRES FLERTEX
April 8, 2021
As of April 1, 2021, the full range of FLERTEX and FLERTEX SINTER activities, have been acquired by ALSTOM.
Alstom develops and markets mobility solutions that provide the sustainable foundations for the future of transportation. Alstom’s products portfolio ranges from high-speed trains, metros, monorail, trams and e-buses to integrated systems, customised services, infrastructure, signalling and digital mobility solutions.
This acquisition, which comes a few months after that of IBRE, a company specialised in the development, manufacture and supply of cast-iron or steel brake discs, enhances and strengthens Alstom’s expertise in braking systems, which represent a key element in the overall technical performance of trains. Moreover, the acquisition represents a promising development opportunity for Flertex and its employees.
