Railrelease, a Dutch shared venture of the Rail Innovators Group and Reichmuth Infrastructure has purchased the maintenance company Combo Wagon Service with the purpose of strengthening its status as a full-service wagon leasing firm.

'I am delighted to announce this takeover and our first steps towards the integration of maintenance activities because wagon availability is key to our customers´, said Railrelease´s CEO Julian Remie on October 15.

The acquisition of CWS, which was established by Jan van Erp in 2011, is extending its services and adds technical know-how, a spare parts depot, two workshop sites, and 30 staff, together with six mobile maintenance teams to serve logistical hubs in Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
Apart from the range of services, Railrelease aims to improve the way of maintaining its equipment. Precisely, it wants to reduce downtime, and that is why it will begin implementing a precautionary and usage-based maintenance plan.
