RAILTARGET presents you with an exclusive interview with Stéphane Brunet, CEO of Vapé Rail. What new program did the company introduce at InnoTrans 2022, and why, in their opinion, are such events important now, in the post-Covid era?

Hello! Can you introduce your company to us?

Yes, of course. My name is Stéphane Brunet. I am the CEO of Vapé Rail. Historically, Vapé Rail was created to develop a new anchoring system for high-speed trains in France. It was about forty years ago. We have been with InnoTrans for more than ten years, and this year, we are introducing a new program with SNCF. The game plan is to retrieve the components from the track. Before, we were trashing them. Today, we want to refurbish them, find an extended lifetime, for example, or second life, such as urban applications. So we claim that the truck of tomorrow is sustainable, and we are developing solutions to be sustainable.

How do you like the fair so far? Are you looking forward to some events?

It feels good to be back after four years. I enjoy the enthusiasm of the fair. It's a great stimulation to finally meet our customers from France, of course, but also, there is this international exposure at InnoTrans, which is great.

Do you think it is important to meet business partners after the COVID-19 era face to face?

Yes, most definitely. Working remotely doesn't allow you to share what the future would be, to understand where your customers are heading, and to share that with them at InnoTrans is a great advantage.

Are you planning to visit more fairs?

To me, InnoTrans is definitively the most, I would say, beautiful, the greatest exposure. We have some local fairs in the countries, but there is nothing like InnoTrans.
