We entered the Polish market for rail vehicles in 2005. We have been very successful as the only Thermo King dealer in the country. Currently most of new and modernised electric multiple units built in Poland are equipped with Thermo King air conditioning units. 2015 was a year of significant development of this branch of our activity.
Our largest partner is Newag from Nowy Sącz. Their "Impuls" trains equipped with Thermo King air conditioning units were purchased last year by e.g. Koleje Mazowieckie and Koleje Dolnośląskie. Soon new sets will appear on rails – manufactured for WKD from Warsaw and SKM from the Tricity.
In 2015 we signed a contract with one of the oldest Polish industrial establishments – Fabryka Pojazdów Szynowych H. Cegielski. Thanks to the contract we will equip 20 EN-57 electric multiple units modernised by the plant from Poznań with LRV air conditioning units (for the passengers' zone) and RAC 40 (for the cab).
ZNTK Mińsk Mazowiecki has also trusted Thermo King brand. Our air conditioning units will appear in 40 modernised EN-57 sets. It is a great success since it is the first order from this rolling stock manufacturer and, at the same time, the largest order in our history in the rail vehicles market.
It is worth noticing that the end users value not only high quality and reliability of Thermo King devices, but also quick and effective servicing. Nowadays, while trains equipped with Thermo King air conditioning units are present in almost every voivodeship in Poland, efficiency and punctuality of our servicing technicians is crucial for good quality of customer service.
In February 2016 Thermo King awarded our company with an exceptional distinction "Special Recognition Award Rail 2015" for its achievements in the field of selling and servicing equipment for rail vehicles. The award confirms our contribution to the emergence and the development of the presence of Thermo King brand in the Polish rail market.
