Railway construction: we build the future.

Rail networks worldwide are made up of 1.3 million kilometres of track. Looking at the future, the railway industry will grow through an increase in freight, passenger traffic, and a new awareness of our environment in the decades to come. At the same time, the requirements for railway tracks are becoming ever more stringent. Railways have to withstand higher loads and greater speeds, and at the same time provide optimum comfort for passengers.

This is why at Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group, we fully committed ourselves to railway engineering many years ago. We plan for the long term and act on the future. We look at railways from the point of view of our customers and their entire life cycle. We want to provide maximum benefit throughout this cycle and achieve top cost-efficiency. Irrespective of whether you commission us as general contractor or as subcontractor for a specific section of a contract, we will always apply a holistic approach that encompasses more than just the day-to-day requirements. Railway construction - we build the future.

Baggerarbeiten beim Bregenzer Hafen 1888
Foundation construction company Rhomberg

In 1886, master builder Cornelius Rhomberg founded a new construction company in Bregenz, Austria, which was successfully continued by Walter Rhomberg and Walter-Heinz Rhomberg. Today, the Rhomberg Group is led by fourth-generation master builder DI Hubert Rhomberg. The company is active all over the world with its construction, resources, and railway engineering business expertise.

Geschichte Sersa
Formation of Sersa

Sersa – which stands for "Soudage électrique des rails S.A." – was formed in 1948 in the Canton of Neuenburg, Switzerland, and purchased by Arnold Schnyder in 1979. Since the management was taken over by his son, Konrad Schnyder, in 1986, SERSA has developed into an internationally active railway specialist.

Merger to Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group

Together, as the Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group which was formed in 2012, we offer our customers a range of services (which is probably the most complete range of services available) in railway construction/railway engineering. This is backed up by state-of-the-art technology, many years of practical competence, and outstandingly well trained staff.

Clear values

A corporate philosophy can achieve great things – but only if it leads by example and ensures its values are truly lived from top to bottom. We have a history of dealing fairly and reliably with our partners, and intend to continue this with a modern approach into the future. In order to achieve this goal, we have created our very own Compliance Guideline which acts as a beacon for our ethical and moral behaviour and integrity – not just within the Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group, but also - and foremost - when dealing with our partners, suppliers and competitors.
