Wagon Pars Delivers 200 Wagons, Locomotives

MAPNA Group’s Wagon Pars Company has delivered 200 different freight and locomotive wagons and locomotives to customers.

The major delivery was marked in a ceremony earlier this month which was attended by the company’s managers, customers, and provincial officials.

Addressing the event, Morteza Mollanejad, the CEO of Wagon Pars, said that each wagon cost an average of 16,000 euros to produce domestically, which was one-third of the cost of importing them from abroad.

He noted that the company has delivered 700 wagons to the country’s rail fleet since the start of the Iranian calendar year 1402 (starting on March 21, 2023).

Markazi Province Governor Farzad Mokhlas Al-Aimeh also addressed the event, hailing the industrial activities of Wagon Pars in the province. 

The central governor said that the country was working to distribute the production of metro cars among the local wagon factories, hoping that this would boost the wagon industry and create more jobs.
