Rolling stock display with 5 products by Medcom

As part of the TRAKO rolling stock display, 5 vehicles using Medcom’s solutions were presented.

Railway industry meeting after two years

The remaining days of the fair were marked by conversations and discussions with contracting partners, business partners, and the media. In the studio of the Rzeczpospolita daily, Medcom’s representatives talked about the need to introduce price indexation rules to contracts in order to protect companies in the uncertain times of the pandemic, when raw material prices are rising and components are scarce.

In an interview for the Rynek Kolejowy monthly, in turn, they explained what manufacturers’ success depends on and to what extent Medcom may help seize the opportunities that the new EU budget and recovery assistance programs offer.  

In Polsat News, we talked about the essence of Medcom’s activity and the specific nature of our solutions, as well as the successes of Polish manufacturers.

The organizer of the fair has also prepared its own video material.
