We have a history of dealing fairly and reliably with our partners, and intend to continue this with a modern approach into the future. In order to achieve that we have created the Compliance Guideline as ethical and moral marker for open behaviour with integrity – not just within the Rhomberg Sersa Rail Group, but also - and foremost - when dealing with our partners, suppliers and competitors.
