The company has grown considerably in recent years and has developed into a globally recognised specialist in the design, trade, production and installation of rail and crane tracks and rail-related (internal) transport systems. Various proprietary products are developed that give the company a specific place in the market.

The activities are divided into two departments: Rail Technology and Shunting Technology. Due to a flexible organisation with multifunctional project managers and production, assembly and maintenance staff, the customer’s wishes are quickly and fully realised.

Starting as a modest trading company at home, in 50 years Bemo Rail has grown to be a worldwide expert in the field of rail and shunting technology.

“Of course this doesn’t happen automatically; as an organisation we are continuously developing and innovating. That Bemo Rail is now known as an expert in our field, is something we are very proud of. In 2017, we have been elected as entrepreneur of the year, which was a great honour. These developments and growth would not have been possible without our loyal employees, some of whom have been with us for over 25 years. With their professional knowledge, expertise and no-nonsense mentality they are, through their hard work, the beating heart of Bemo Rail!

As a company we like to invest in the knowledge and skills of our people. For projects abroad we regularly work together with the local population. For some projects we train the local people in-company. For example, we have had a number of people from Indonesia come to the Netherlands to give them a welding course here, so that they can deliver real professional work.”

“Bemo Rail has acquired a solid position in the market over the past 50 years. We have grown into a well-respected international player and are particularly skilled at translating customer requirements into concrete products. In the years to come, we will continue to develop and provide the market with practical products and services.  With the in-house technical knowledge, we will strengthen our base in sectors such as ports, shipyards and industry.

Besides new construction of e.g. shunting vehicles and crane tracks, Bemo Rail is also a strong partner in maintenance. We are very experienced and we are good at it! This results in maintenance contracts in which we support customers to increase the reliability of their shunting vehicles or crane tracks. Even on unique locations like the particle accelerator of CERN, you’ll find Bemo Rail doing the maintenance on the rails.

What makes Bemo Rail distinctive, is that besides an extensive standard range of products, we also specialise in customer-oriented solutions, partly thanks to our in-house engineering department and fully equipped workshop.”
