The group’s highly engineered railway, metro and tram products include on-board equipment such as pantographs and third rail shoe gear, and infrastructure products including third rail and light overhead catenary systems. It’s industrial products include slip rings for wind turbines, motorized and spring driven reeling systems for mobile cranes and mining equipment, and industrial conductor bars, used in factories, warehousing and ports.

Oaklins Cavendish, based in the UK, advised the shareholders of Fandstan in this transaction. The team's specialist commented: “The sale of Fandstan has been one of the most complex we have executed with 19 separate legal entities on four continents. The smooth conclusion of the sale shows the importance of bringing well-capitalized overseas strategic purchasers such as Wabtec to the table through a controlled process.”
