All projects


Success of our partners is a success for us

In 2015, the first year of collaboration with G&G, their containered spraying system completed a total of 6.588 km on Iberian gauge platform, carrying out the treatment with the highest standards of quality and environmental compatibility. The performance of the technology as well as the professionalism and know-how of the G&G staff has allowed us to reduce the duration of the campaigns by 50% in relation to the technology used so far in Spain. Obviously, we took the best decision.

Danube Express (Hungary) has been working with G&G since 2014. Following construction of a generator car a former Restaurant Car was converted into the new Bar Car. The work was carried out over a period of nine months. The interior of the car was completely rebuilt and the body fully refurbished. G&G did a great job and I’m impressed with the quality of their workmanship, cooperation and attention to detail. The car was completed on time and has resulted in a superb vehicle. Work has already started on the next project – three new sleeping cars.
