The Gemini Rail Group has been a 100% subsidiary of Mutares since 2018. Gemini Rail specialises in the modernization, conversion and wheelset overhaul of rail vehicles. With its in-house team of specialized engineers, the company offers turnkey solutions for train refurbishment, modernization and external project management. Under the GemECO brand, Gemini Rail has established itself as the technologically leading retrofitter for hybrid drive systems of rail vehicles. In the UK, Gemini Rail is the second largest OEM-independent supplier and counts British railway operating and ownership companies and railway OEMs among its customers. In 2019, the company employed around 260 people and generated sales of
EUR 80 million.
After the complete spin-off from the former parent company and estabslishment as an independent company in 2019, Gemini Rail has adapted the cost structure to the future order situation, strengthened the management qualitatively and thus already generated positive results within the framework of a restructuring programme. Within the optimization phase, Gemini Rail is now concentrating on the implementation of a newly defined market strategy and the further development of its product portfolio, particularly referring to GemECO, where the company has been able to establish itself as a pioneer in the conversion of rail vehicles to hybrid drive systems with the first orders received.
