“Expanding our export presence is one of our top priorities. We began work to strengthen the position of STM in Kazakhstan in 2020, and the creation of a separate subsidiary is a logical continuation of our expansion into this market. Our partner Eurotrans Group is one of the largest players in the railway logistics market in Kazakhstan, our cooperation, I am sure, will give a new impetus to the development of our companies’ businesses in the republic, ”said Anton Zubikhin, Deputy General Director for Private Label Sales.

The joint venture will supply rolling stock and track equipment manufactured by STM, its repair and maintenance, and will also provide infrastructure services for stone cleaning, rail welding, rail grinding and other types of work related to the maintenance of railways.

In addition, the sphere of interests of the joint venture includes the development of cooperation with private and state industrial companies in Kazakhstan.
