SWITCH BEARERS

WEGH Group manufactures prestressed reinforced concrete switch bearers in variable sizes depending on the different, punctual requirements set out by the clients. In this case too, WEGH Group is distinguished by its knowledge of both the process – it designs and builds plants for the manufacture of switch bearers – and the product thanks to its multi-year experience started back in 1985.
