About us

Sweden enjoys a worldwide reputation for producing advanced railway technology. The country has been at the forefront when it comes to restructuring and transforming the state railways into efficient business-oriented units designed to meet the customer requirements and the competition with other means of transport. This process has contributed to the development of strong, market-oriented Swedish suppliers of products and services within the railway sector.

In this environment, leading Swedish companies covering the whole railway sector have founded SWERIG – the Swedish Rail Industry Group. Our member companies comprise all areas of the railway technology and knowledge sector, from rolling stock, sub-systems, components, infrastructure technology and building, maintenance, software and consultancy companies.

You find more information about our member companies and their solutions at Members & Solutions.
