Traxtion Group targets African rail market

Traxtion Group aims to partner with locomotive and wagon manufacturers, track construction companies, consulting engineers and project developers in the African rail market so as to increase their presence in Africa.
The Sheltam group has been rebranded as Traxtion Group, following a 30% investment from Harith General Partners’ Pan African Infrastructure Development Fund 2.
Chairman Brian Myerson said the business could also expand into the mining and industrial sectors. The newly launched Traxtion Leasing business will focus on product innovation and flexible financing, with maintenance support from Traxtion Sheltam.
“Leasing companies need to be so much more than financiers, and at Traxtion Leasing we have the experience and understanding to bring product innovation to complement flexible funding solutions,” said  Traxtion Leasing CEO Willem Goosen. “With the support of the outstanding maintenance expertise in Traxtion Sheltam it is a really exciting value proposition.”
The Traxtion Projects
The Traxtion Projects business aims to combine Harith’s financing experience with the operational and freight market expertise of Traxtion Sheltam, to support operating concessions, upgrading projects and new infrastructure.
‘In addition to what this offering brings Africa, as a black-owned infrastructure fund we believe that Traxtion Leasing and Traxtion Projects are perfectly placed to support the South African government with its public-private partnership drive’,  said Emile du Toit, Head of Pan African Infrastructure Development Fund 2.
Sheltam has a long and well-deserved reputation for delivering unparalleled, rail services and solutions across the African continent.
Incorporation of Traxtion into the Sheltam brand
With the incorporation of Traxtion into the Sheltam brand, they bring deep financial capacity to invest in rolling stock and track infrastructure, enabling them to offer even greater expertise and benefits to their clients. They are passionate about all things rail and locomotive related – and equally passionate about providing world-class quality and safety. Above all, they are committed to bringing fresh prospects, progress and new horizons to the people of Africa.
