Der Bochumer Verein Verkehrstechnik

Driving force of a future industry

Rail transportation drives in the fast lane: The growth rates in urban high-speed local and continental transportation are impressive, and there is no end in sight. These are the best conditions for ambitious and powerful teams like the Bochumer Verein.

As one of the most innovative and traditional providers of products for railway systems, BVV enjoys great respect as a provider of ideas and manufacturers among railway companies and OEMs worldwide: Wheels, wheelsets and axles from Bochum, Ilsenburg and Brand-Erbisdorf are in demand as quality German products more than ever before.

With its unconditional commitment to increasing customer value, commitment to partnership and quality, innovation and above all reliability, BVV remains one of the most significant drivers of development – and with its plants in Germany and its branches and service centres around the world, it is a first class global player.

Therefore, in addition to our traditional markets of Europe and the USA, the fast-growing regions in Africa and Asia are increasingly becoming areas of interest. The partnership with Full Hill Enterprises, one of the major Chinese rail technology manufacturers, is an expression of this movement. It opens up the largest and fastest-growing market for rail technology and makes the company stronger than ever before.
