Cost-effective, reliable and with highest precision – from inquiry to planning and pricing to realisation, we prioritise your needs while focusing on cost-effectiveness, performance capacities and adherence to schedules.

Track and switch bedding

Ballast regulators are often used in conjunction with track-tamping machines to backfill, grade and sweep tracks and realise standard ballast cross-sections (also in switches). Our high-performance machines, permanent availability, professional project management, know-how and experience mean that we are always able to prioritise your individual requirements while realising your construction project and keeping shut-downs at optimum levels.

HERING sustainability

At HERING, we see ourselves as pioneers in the field of sustainability. As early as 1996, we were the first construction company in Germany to obtain EMAS certification. Every three years, we publish an environmental statement documenting our goals and how we have achieved them. Actually, for the first time, we published a sustainability report with an integrated environmental statement in accordance with EMAS - a logical next step in view of our ecological and social responsibility. It documents how we deal internally and externally with the issues that are essential to our future viability.
