Vossloh Cogifer Investing in New Equipment to Double Their Productivity

A Castlemaine-based rail manufacturer will invest in new equipment that could double the company’s productivity.

Vossloh Cogifer, a subsidiary of Vossloh (AG) Germany, will purchase a Computer Numerical Control operated rail milling machine that will more than halve the time it takes the company to create components for rail networks, specifically long rails and switchblades for turnouts, and will nearly double the company’s productivity.

The company will be able to establish itself as the only turnout manufacturer in Victoria, and one of only two operating on Australia’s East Coast.

The investment will generate 10 new jobs for engineers, machine operators and support officers.
