The transport industry has historically always occupied one of the leading places in the economy of Ukraine and today it provides the creation of more than 10% of GDP.
The factory of equipment “FEROX” produces units and parts for the city electric transport.
The importance of manufacturing in this sector can be assessed on the basis of statistics of the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine, according to which annually an urban transport services (trams, trolleybuses) use more than 2 billion passengers (of which 67% – citizens of the privileged categories).
While the technical condition of urban transport is unsatisfactory: when the standard term of operation of tram is 15 years, of trolleybus – 10 years, a large part of tramcars are over 30 years and trolleybuses are over 20 years.
That is why the factory of equipment “FEROX” creates units collaborating with the Corporation “Bogdan Motors”, “Electrontrans” JV, “Boryspil automobile factory” PJSC (brand “Etalon”) in the frames of the project of renewing the Ukrainian public transport.
