Based in Frauenfeld, Switzerland, European Lok Pool (ELP) is a partnership between Swiss firm PCS Holding and Lucerne-based bank Reichmuth & Co.
ELP says market demand for full-service leasing is increasing, and the company’s leasing package reflects this trend. ELP will offer the complete management and maintenance of locomotives as part of the leasing rate, with a service package including preventative and corrective maintenance as well as examinations and repairs. Servicing covers the entire lifecycle of the locomotive.
ELP’s first order is for 10 Stadler EuroDual locomotives, with the first due for delivery in the second half of 2019. The company also plans to add four-axle bi-mode shunting locomotives to its portfolio.
