We believe that if we are to take the right decisions – the decisions that serve regional rail mobility –, it is important that we operate close to our customers and their users. Our regional locations therefore handle part of ETF’s activities directly, in conjunction with local customers and stakeholders.
To meet the need for scarce capabilities and offer state-of-the-art technical solutions, ETF has set up four specialised entities:
- Railway Civil Engineering,
- Overhead Contact Lines and Power Supply,
- ETF Services (railway safety and railway traffic).
These entities either take full responsibility for the worksite or work to support local structures, depending on the type of project.
Customised organisational structure for major projects
To deliver our expertise around the world, ETF set up an International Division bringing together several highly autonomous business units located in other countries including Germany, Canada, Poland, Luxembourg and Chile (link to international locations). The International Division has a enabling it to mobilise teams for its projects in other countries, notably in Africa.
Head office serving the business units
All these decentralised units work day-to-day with the support functions to reach out to new markets, develop and spread innovative expertise and conduct in-depth studies to design the most suitable projects. Our teams thus have the support of experts who help them carry out their projects under the best possible conditions.
