The SPITZKE Group is part of the mobility industry. As a system provider for rail infrastructure, we are making a long-term contribution to sustainability and to achieving climate goals. As part of the electrification initiative, we are implementing relevant rail infrastructure projects, developing new working methods, and driving digitalisation.
We offer our more than 2,300 employees a high level of job security in a stable industry and extensive opportunities for development in our company. Our own SPITZKE AKADEMIE promotes the qualification, training, and further education of our employees. We attach great importance to the creation of apprenticeships. For our technical trainees, we not only have own training centre, but we also have a practical learning area for an optimal combination of theory and practice. Our goal is to give all trainees opportunities within the SPITZKE Group.
Here are some insights.
In 2020, a practical learning field with two tracks for teaching purposes was created at the main location of the SPITZKE Group. When this learning space is completed in 2021, there will even be two points and three tracks, one of which will also be equipped with a conductor rail.
Of course, there won’t be any trains running here, but there will be a lot of learning going on. Our trainees will be able to try out all of the operations that they often do not have enough time to learn on the construction sites. Our track construction trainees have already had a taste of this, as they built large parts of the practical field themselves, with the guidance of our experienced employees. Built by trainees and for trainees, the SPITZKE practical learning field is an important building block for continuous learning.

The Southern Railway and the continuing Lake Constance Belt Railway are to be electrified and prepared for a speed increase to 160 km/h by 2021.
For this reason, SPITZKE employees from the Equipment/Electrical Engineering Division have already been working on the Ulm–Friedrichshafen–Lindau–Aeschach line since 2018. In addition, around 2,000 masts are being erected by our foundation experts, most of which come from SPITZKE’s production subsidiaries SPITZKE FAHRWEGSYSTEME GmbH and MuR-STAHLBAU GmbH.
On December 12th this major project was completed successfully on schedule. The first electrified trains will commence regular service. Read all about the electrification of the Suedbahn in ourproject ticker
