The management board of the leading European association of railway clusters ERCI decided at its meeting in Brussels on February 5 to accept the membership application of the Mobility Cluster ACstyria. ERCI now counts 15 European rail industry clusters (> ERCI Partners).
The Mobility Cluster ACstyria represents a network of about 300 companies operating in automotive and aerospace industries and rail systems – these companies have more than 70,000 employees and an overall sales volume of more than Euro 17 billion. The key service provided by the cluster, which has existed since 1995, consists in bringing together and supporting Styrian companies throughout the value added chain. In this respect, the cluster understands itself as being a link between trade and industry, research and public institutions.
