Trains are built to last for 30-40 years – but refurbishments in seats and floor carpets are changed every seven years.
Interior design is a long-lead item in the train design lifecycle. So, original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) want to expedite designs which can cater for a range of different vehicles. Yet every small detail change between rolling stock models creates delay that increases the time to market.
Quest Global has successfully completed this work on time and to budget for many trains, automatic people movers and trams. We have worked on metro trains for multiple cities, as well as suburban and long-distance stock. Quest Global has the advantage of reading across solutions and best practices from one fleet to another and one region to another. The engineers have a good amount of exposure as they get to work on different platforms. Quest Global has end-to-end solutions on all current interior sub-systems, be it ceilings, sidewalls, floor, seating systems, grab-rails, electrical cabinets, emergency cupboards, in-train trim panels or gangway trim panels.
We bring in the advantage by working on all these platforms and geographies. We bring in the best-practices and support reuse in order to reduce the overall cycle time.
