Niigata Transys Co., Ltd

Niigata Transys Co., Ltd

Company Overview

Our company was founded in February 2003, taking over the operations of three divisions of the former transportation division of Niigata Engneering Co., Ltd. (rolling stock, new transportation systems, and road snow removal vehicles), and two divisions of Fuji Heavy Industries (rolling stock and maintenance railcars). With a primary focus on railcars, we manufacture passenger railcars, electric multiple units (EMUs), diesel multiple units(DMUs) maintenance railcars, new transit systems, and light rail vehicles (LRVs).

Railway rolling stock

Railway rolling stock

We manufacture railcars for limited express services and ordinary services of the JR group of companies, ordinary railcars for private railways and public-private partnerships, and one-man-operation railcars. We also manufacture railcars for construction sites and passenger cars with Japanese-style tatami mat seating for chartered event tours.

We also provide the maintenance required as rolling stock caged ages, and refurbish railcars, servicing them for their full life term.

Repair and maintenance railcars

Repair and maintenance railcars

We manufacture special railcars for the repair and maintenance of rails, overhead catenary contact lines, tunnel walls and more. We also manufacture rotary Russell railcars for snow removal. Taking advantage of the expertise we gained in a snowy part of Japan, plus our snow removal technologies developed over many years, we are skilled in the manufacture of the latest snow removal vehicles.

New transit systems

New transit systems

New transit system trains have medium passenger capacity and run on a dedicate track guideway. Japan's first such system for revenue operations opened in Osaka with cars made by our company, and since then we are proud to have delivered entire new transit systems, including cars, signaling systems and track for a number of operators in Japan and abroad.

Super-low floor light rail vehicles (LRVs)

Super-low floor light rail vehicles (LRVs)

Super-low floor LRVs are next-generation, people-friendly streetcars with a no-step flat floor. We were the first to deliver LRVs in Japan (the city of Kumamoto), and since then we have supplied them to the cities of Okayama, Toyama and Takaoka. When delivering them, we have also supplied rail fixing system by plastic materials.

Snow removal machinery for roads

Snow removal machinery for roads

Taking advantage of our location in snowy Niigata Prefecture, we have for many years manufactured rotary snow-removal vehicles for roads. We have received high praise also for another product we manufacture — high-speed vehicles that can remove snow in a short timeframe, ideal for such places as expressways and airports. We also make vehicles that spread anti-icing agents on roads.
