For over 150 years, ELECTROPUTERE VFU Pascani, part of the GRAMPET Group, has been a leading light in Romania's railway industry. Specializing in the manufacturing, modernization, and maintenance of both passenger and freight railway vehicles, the company has leveraged its heritage and experience to stand out in the local and global marketplace. Key to its success is the innovative "Redesigned and Rebuilt" (R&R) concept, a process that rejuvenates used railway vehicles and ensures their performance is comparable to that of brand-new units, but at a fraction of the cost.

In addition to its manufacturing prowess, ELECTROPUTERE VFU Pascani offers an integrated suite of services to its customers. This holistic approach, encompassing consultancy, design, manufacturing, testing, staff training, and warranty and post-warranty services, ensures that clients receive end-to-end support for their needs. From constructing passenger coaches capable of speeds up to 200 Km/h and modernizing existing railway vehicles using their proprietary R&R process to providing maintenance services in line with EU Directive, the company's comprehensive range of services speaks to its capabilities and dedication to the industry.

Beyond its services and competencies, ELECTROPUTERE VFU Pascani is recognized for its commitment to quality and environmental sustainability. The company holds certifications for welding railway vehicles and components, maintenance functions, and railway supplier authorization for rolling stock spare parts. A significant part of its history was the transformation in 2004 when it was privatized and later rebranded in 2018, demonstrating its adaptability in the face of changing markets and consumer needs. Looking to the future, ELECTROPUTERE VFU Pascani continues to invest heavily in technology, know-how, and human resources, ready to meet the next generation of railway industry challenges.
