Founded in 1869 by Austrian and polish specialists, Electroputere VFU Pașcani SA, member of Grampet Group, is one of the most important players from the Romanian rolling stock market. The initial purpose of the company was to provide maintenance services to railway vehicles. Together with the privatisation, Electroputere VFU Pașcani got into the railway vehicles modernisation segment, segment where the company is leader on the Romanian market. As result of the investments of more than 30 million Euro, in technology, know-how and human resources and based on the accumulated experience from the reconstructions and modernisations, the company entered in a new stage of development: manufacturing of railway vehicles. In order to highlight this transition the company name was changed from REMAR (Romanian abbreviation for ROLLING STOCK REPAIRS) in Electroputere VFU Pașcani.
