A multi-national rail company, is the next in a long line of firms to choose Doncaster as its base.

With a turnover of more than 300million Euros Austrian/Swiss rail group Rhomberg Sersa has taken a unit at West Moor Park, Armthorpe for their UK head office.

Carl Garrud, Managing Director of Rhomberg Sersa who now works out of Doncaster, said: “Choosing Doncaster will enable the company to establish key contacts with the numerous rail and engineering businesses already based in Doncaster and Yorkshire. This clustering effect was an important factor when deciding to base our UK operations in the town.

Mayor of Doncaster, Ros Jones, said: “We are delighted to welcome another household name in the rail sector in Rhomberg Sersa to Doncaster. This is another feather in Doncaster’s cap as we continue to attract leading rail and engineering firms to the town.”

The Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group are among the world’s leading Slab Track technology companies providing manufacturing, installation and design services that meet the needs of high speed rail infrastructure.

Having provided services to many high speed rail projects throughout continental Europe, the Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group now offer their specialist services to the UK market via their Doncaster based office. The company is expected to continue to commit to Doncaster with the possibility of undertaking their manufacturing in the town. Doncaster’s bid to bring the High Speed Rail College to Yorkshire is also backed by Rhomberg Sersa.
