Naledi Rail Engineering commenced business in 2007 when NRE got its first contract from SARCC and completed its first coach mid 2008.At the time the vision was to provide the railway industry with an alternative local source of railway engineering expertise.
It soon became evident that the South African Railway Industry seriously lacked competition in the refurbishing of the rolling stock market segment. Repair procedures applied and materials used had virtually remained the same for over 30 years. In 2008 NRE entered the refurbishment arena and successfully repaired it’s first 5M2A motor coaches and plain trailers during the first year for SARCC (SA Rail Commuter Corporation) now PRASA.
NRE focuses on value added activities within a variety of areas of operation for both freight and passenger: Rolling stock refurbishment, infrastructure management, electrification, rolling stock design, quality control systems and wheel profiling.
