Research and development

The Overail industrial site has a research centre to develop new solutions and improve the features of existing concrete products. It also creates patents for innovative, high-performance products for the market.

Thanks to its in-house laboratory and to machines for product testing, the company studies various types of concrete, including innovative materials such as fibre-reinforced concrete. Overail also encourages various partnerships with universities, research centres and other companies.

Working together with RECO, a Salcef Group company specialised in engineering and design, Overail has developed lighter sleepers for more efficient logistics, with better ergonomics to minimise accidental damage during laying and track maintenance.
