“We are looking forward to supporting German Rail Day at our headquarters location in Kassel,” says Kai Mentel, Managing Director of the HÜBNER Group. “Rail transport and the rail industry as a whole will be crucial for the overall mobility turnaround. As the HÜBNER Group, we are offering an important part of the solutions for this transformation in mobility offerings.”


Gangway system for the Spanish rail manufacturer CAF will be shown

Rail travelers and interested people will have the chance to get information about the broad range of HÜBNER mobility products at the company’s Rail Day stand in the station. The HÜBNER product range extends from customized gangway systems for trains as well as buses, to door safety and entry systems for public transport vehicles, to chassis technology, cockpit displays in the cabs of locomotives, plus applications for airport technology.

As an example of one of its main products, HÜBNER will be showing a gangway system produced for the commuter train “Tren Modular Civia”, a vehicle produced by the rail manufacturer Construcciones y Auxiliar de Ferrocarriles (CAF). The Spanish company has been a HÜBNER customer for many years.
