Vision

Railway construction: we build the future.

The worldwide rail network has 1.3 million kilometers of track. In future the drivers of continuous growth in the railway industry will be an increase in goods transport, an increase in 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 more stringent. They have to withstand higher loads and greater speeds. And at the same time provide optimum comfort for passengers.

For this reason, we at the Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group committed to railway engineering many years ago. We plan for the long term and act with a view to the future. We see railways from the point of view of our customers and hence including their entire life cycle. We want to provide maximum benefit in all phases of this cycle and achieve top cost-efficiency. Irrespective of whether you commission us as general contractor or as subcontractor for specific sections of a contract, we will always apply a holistic approach to our tasks that encompasses more than the day-to-day requirements. Railway construction: we build the future.

History
1886
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 with the company being active all over the world with its construction, resources and railway engineering business fields.

1948
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.

2012

Merger to Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group

Together – as the Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group, formed in 2012 – we offer our customers a range of services which is probably the most complete service 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 is not limited, leads by example and ensures its values are lived. 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 that we have created the Compliance Guideline as ethical and moral marker for open behaviour with integrity – not just within the Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group, but also - and foremost - when dealing with our partners, suppliers and competitors.
