Atlas Rail in Australian Hands
Marand Precision Engineering purchased Atlas Engineering in 2001 and the company was renamed Atlas Rail.
Since that purchase the company has benefited from the technology and skills transfer that has occurred in the intervening years through interaction with the different divisions that exist under the Marand umbrella – aerospace, robotics, automotive and defence.
Other benefits of the close tie with Marand include an in-house certified metrology laboratory and a significant manufacturing and refurbishment capability of more than 10,000 square metres.
These combined resources have placed Atlas Rail in the position of being able to offer its customers the benefits of new developments, as well as of lessons learned from other industries, while retaining in-depth understanding of the requirements of the rail industry.
