A meeting was held at the Italian Embassy in Tokyo between MERMEC Japan and the key stakeholders in the Japanese railway industry.
Tokyo, May 27, 2022 – MERMEC, a leading Italian company specializing in technologies for the safety and maintenance of rail networks, as a part of the Angel Group (a holding company developing solutions for the rail, digital mechatronics, and aerospace sectors), announces the signing of three new contracts for advanced diagnostics of Japan’s rail and metro network. The contracts worth more than 20 million euros were signed today, at the Italian Embassy in Tokyo, in the presence of Ambassador Gianluigi Benedetti and some of the major players in the railway (Mitsubishi Electric, Sumitomo Corporation, Mitsui NCO, Hitachi Hitech), financial (JICA and ADB) and industrial scene in Japan.
MERMEC Vice President for International Affairs Angelo Petrosillo says, “There are excellent, well-established relationships between MERMEC and Japanese railway enterprises. Our important goal is to further expand these relationships by making MERMEC’s experience and technology increasingly available to meet the market needs of local railway enterprises, thanks also to the specific high-tech solutions to be developed directly in Japan. We are working to make railway infrastructure more and more modern, interconnected, and resilient,” Vice President Petrosillo continued, “hoping as soon as possible for a climate of global peace, which can give serenity to the people involved and put the social and economic development of more countries back on track.”
MERMEC, present in 71 countries around the world, is the only Italian company in the railway industry to have supplied, managed, and maintained diagnostic and measurement systems in Japan through MERMEC Japan, a company established in 2017 and composed of a group of experts, with a significant and rapidly growing order book in Japan as well as Asia Pacific countries.
