SLOVENIAN Railways (SZ) has relaunched its train maintenance and overhaul activities under the brand SZ Traction and Technical (SZ-VIT) with the aim of expanding its business internationally.

As part of the broader restructuring of the railway, the creation of SZ-VIT merges SZ's Central Workshops Ljubljana, SZ Traction, and TVD wagon maintenance units into a single organisation headquartered in Ljubljana with workshops at several locations in Slovenia.

SZ-VIT currently provides a range of maintenance and overhaul services to domestic operators, but is also seeking to enter new markets in central and south-eastern Europe. The company hopes to broaden its capabilities by establishing long-term partnerships with other suppliers in the region.
