Inver Engineering has been involved in servicing the rail industry since the inception of the company over 30 years ago, providing precision machined and refurbished components for all classes of rolling stock.
In 2013 Inver Engineering established a purpose built, under 1 roof, Rail Maintenance facility. The facility allows for the end to end process of Bogie Overhauls to be performed without product being moved to other buildings, sites or sub contractors.
With a focus on value adding at every step of the process – Lean principles have been implemented. The only TAKT time driven Bogie overhaul facility in Australia – we are setting the new benchmark for the industry.
The flexibility of an in-line complete overhaul process allows for an efficient, cost effective, processing of your product. A TAKT time driven process ensures that your product progresses as planned. Current supplier of services to METRO Trains Melbourne for the Nexas Fleet.
