The development of the public transport network undoubtedly has a positive effect on the environment and society. In light of this and as part of the European Mobility Week (16-22 September 2013) the Goldschmidt Thermit Group supports the campaign of the International Association of Public Transport (UITP) which is designed to strengthen public transport networks worldwide.

"For many people the public transport network is the key to mobility. Whether on the way to school, going to work, or going to the shops, the users of the public transport network are able to participate in social life with great flexibility without the need for a car", explains Dr. Hans-Jürgen Mundinger, chairman of the managing board of the Goldschmidt Thermit Group. "And we ensure that trams run quietly and reliably so that passengers reach their destinations in comfort."

The provision of products and services for local traffic networks is one of the core areas of the Goldschmidt Thermit Group. The product portfolio of the family-owned company divided into the five areas of rail joining, rail services, measurement, tools and machines and equipment is perfectly organized to meet the requirements of rail based transportation infrastructure. In particular, the Goldschmidt Thermit Group is a dynamic partner worldwide for the construction, maintenance and renovation of railway tracks and expansion of railway networks.
