Mirjana Živković, Director, Vossloh MIN Switches Niš

Decades of Experience Guarantee Quality

Renowned German technology company Vossloh, which is focused primarily on railway infrastructure, took over the enterprise MIN Skretnice many years ago. And it today delivers its products not only to Serbia, but also to other railways in the region and around Europe

As the Vossloh Group’s Niš company enters its third decade, its director, Mirjana Živković, announces that she and her team will continue to grow and enhance the company’s competitiveness by delivering reliable, safe and cost-effective solutions for the railway industry.

What is it like to operate within the scope of a leading global railway technology company that has 30 production sites in approximately 20 countries?

— Since 2003, Vossloh MIN Switches Niš has been part of the Vossloh Group, which employs about 4,000 people and generates hundreds of millions of euros in revenue.

The privatisation that was completed 21 years ago marked a new phase in the operations of our factory, which dates back to the 19th century. Vossloh operates as an integrated group, with departments closely cooperating on the market, under the operational management of Vossloh AG, thus guaranteeing customers suitable products, systems and services from a single source. Thanks to our parent company, we have access to the most modern equipment, tools and materials, as well as the latest technology.

We are proud to have an exceptionally skilled team that has longstanding experience in the company and is capable of creating products that satisfy all expectations of customers

As a consequence, we invest continuously in the modernising of production and employee training. We increase our investments in modern equipment and technologies each year. We are proud to have an exceptionally skilled team that has longstanding experience in the company and is capable of creating products that satisfy all expectations of customers.

Your company designs, manufactures and supplies high-quality railway switches for domestic and international markets. Where do your products that represent the future of smart railways end up?

— As the general director of Vossloh MIN Switches, I proudly lead a fantastic team that designs, manufactures and supplies high-quality railway switches to Serbian Railways and other railways in the region and across Europe. Our end-users are mostly public railway companies, network operators and regional and municipal transport enterprises. They expect safe, economical, environmentally-friendly and proven products and services from a single source.

You last year celebrated 20 years of successful operations within the Vossloh Group. What plans and ambitions do you have for this new decade?

— Of the 20 years that the company has been operating under this name, I have spent 15 here. During this time, I have led – initially as the head of the design department and later as the operations manager – the successful implementation of several projects, from developing new products to optimising processes, resulting in improved efficiency, quality and customer satisfaction. None of this would have been possible without the excellent engineers, designers and technicians at Vossloh MIN Switches Niš, who believe that top results require a team spirit and a stimulating working environment. My mission is to provide all of this, to drive growth and competitiveness, to deliver reliable, safe and cost-effective solutions for the railway industry, and to work on the conquering of new markets with the group’s support.
