Apart from the traditional fields of activity pursued by a railway transport company, the RATH Group has expanded its portfolio with services in system rail for some years. In 2016, the RATH Group responded to the requirements of digitalisation by buying the shares in VISCOM Datensysteme GmbH which has already belonged to its closest partners since the founding days of the RATH Group. Apart from the digitalization, the second great challenge in the railway industry is an acute shortage of staff. By continuous training and continuing education of our personnel at LUKAS training centre, we could rise to this challenge. In addition, since the beginning of 2021, the RATH Group has also been offering personnel services in the railway sector with Lok-Spitze Bahnpersonal GmbH (LSB for short).

VISCOM was incorporated in 1988 and this makes it one of the oldest still existing IT companies in the region of Aachen. VISCOM provides and maintains IT infrastructure for RATH Group. In cooperation wit a subsidiary of RATH Group, VISCOM develops railway-specific software for a large portion of system rail, in the meantime.

The business area of application development is responsible for planning, programming and integration of all rail-related, operational software applications of RATH Group. Our team develops customized software solutions for the daily business of operating divisions. Until now, diverse modules in goods transport, passenger transport and infrastructure could be implemented.

Our system integration business area of VISCOM takes over the integration of IT hardware, systems and components. The entire customer IT infrastructure is managed as a full service, on-site assistance ensures system availability, if necessary, on 24 hour stand by. We have close contacts with reputable producers in the industry, such as Microsoft, Cisco, Hewlett-Packard, Lenovo, Sophos, Tobit Software, among other companies, due to partner programmes and regular qualifications.

Since 2010, the RATH Group has been a certified training organization for train drivers. In 2016, we had our training plan which we have professionalised by a spinning off the training centre into LUKAS and the relocation to its own premises with administrative and training rooms. Since 2019, LUKAS has also got its own simulator for training and continuing education of train drivers. Apart from training the train drivers, LUKAS also offers the education for account managers for SPNV and continuing education and training of the personnel.

The Lok-Spitze Bahnpersonal GmbH (LSB) is active in the field of personnel services and offers personnel support in the railway sector. The personnel leasing company based in Freilassing (Bavaria) started its operations on January 1st, 2021. The Lok-Spitze Bahnpersonal GmbH offers its services neutrally on the market – both for services in freight traffic and for services in passenger and construction train traffic.
