From track superstructure to the track construction machine

Since its foundation in 1959, the company of Josef Schwarz, Trackbuilders, focused mainly on the field of track superstructure in Austria. After the retirement of Josef Schwarz, the company’s founder, the track superstructure side of the business was discontinued. Its place was taken by the Schwarz Track Construction Company OG, thus continuing the tradition of a family business, which is now being run by members of the second generation.

Nowadays we are mainly concerned with the ongoing development and sales of the SRM-2000 track ballast cleaning machine. In addition, and tailored to suit the individual requirements of our clients, we develop the VLS-2000 loading system. This is an efficient loading system for ballast and excavated material, enabling angled loading from MFS/AVES hopper units onto material transporters or trucks.
