At the Hengelo workshop, our customer is Syntus. This company will operate the Zwolle-Enschede and Zwolle-Kampen lines starting in December 2017. Stadler Service Nederland performs all the maintenance work for Syntus.
Syntus will operate 17 FLIRT trains built by Stadler Rail in Switzerland.
At the end of 2015, Stadler Service Netherlands won the contract from Syntus to maintain its fleet for the East Netherlands lines. Work then started apace on a brand-new and modern workshop scheduled to come into use in December 2017. It will truly be a workshop where, as a technician, you’ll be eager to get your hands dirty.

Our work and our people
The recruitment and training of employees for the Hengelo workshop also began in 2015. Only maintenance mechanics and a collaborative foreman work in Hengelo. The workshop is supported by Leeuwarden for planning and administrative work. The experienced fitters at Leeuwarden travel to Hengelo when needed.
The work of the mechanics is very varied. They:
• perform maintenance tasks

• perform bogie overhauls
• turn wheels with a pit wheel lathe
• repair electronic and mechanical faults
• replace interiors (e.g. after vandalism)
• replace windows
