Is the sale of Ostrava Repair and Engineering Works planned? Information about this transaction has already been published twice by MotejlekSkocdopole.cz. According to RAILTARGET's behind-the-scenes sources, the transaction should take place in 2022.

RAILTARGET editorial staff has been monitoring the situation around OOS and the Šuška brothers' business for its readers for a long time. Now, the rail sector is starting to talk about the sale of the former empire of the Šuška brothers, namely Ostravské opravny a strojírny, including the media-famous Legios carriage in Louny.

Who should be the new owner of OOS? According to all sources, it should be CE Industries, which is part of Jaroslav Strnad's holding. It was Strnad that had a fallout on the Legios carriage in Louny a few years ago. However, his offer was more than doubled by the Šuška brothers, who acquired the site of the once-famous carriage house. Apparently, the tables are now turning and it is a paradox that the OOS, including the Legios in Louny, is to be transferred to the Strnad holding.

This transaction is also being discussed among the management and employees of the Louny wagon factory. According to a source who does not wish to be named, key senior Strnad's employees, whether from Ostrava's VŽO or Croatia's TŽV Gredelj, are gradually being withdrawn to Louny. There is also talk of big changes among the employees of the Loun carriage company, who have been asking themselves several times what the consequences of the changes in the ownership of the company will be for them.

Some suppliers who could not deliver to OOS because the company had long been on ČD Cargo's Black List and therefore did not receive any orders from the national freight carrier are also preparing for the change of ownership. Some companies are already focusing on the future resumption of deliveries to Ostrava Repair and Engineering Works. They expect that the change of ownership will also lead to a change in the blacklist status of the national freight carrier.

The sale of the cornerstone of the Šuška brothers' empire, Ostrava Repair, and Engineering Works, highlights the difficult financial situation of these railway entrepreneurs. The RAILTARGET editorial team will continue to monitor the situation and bring you further exclusive information.
