Technical innovation

ZECK began the production of special purpose machines for overhead line construction in 1966. The development of the world’s first puller-tensioner combination machine in 1973 was one of ZECK’s most important pioneering achievements. The manufacturing of machines for catenary construction started in 1996. Both were great steps, which positively influenced the history of our company.

In 2005 there was another highlight for ZECK, when our line car LF 923 was honoured with the Bavarian State Award. ZECK has established its good reputation thanks to its unresting dedication to improve details in close cooperation with its customers worldwide. Thanks to continuous innovation and the resulting technological lead in the process of development, our machines have an internationally leading position in terms of reliability, technology, efficiency and safety.
