Clients' procurement policies

Strukton has various large principals. About fifteen percent of the operating income is attributable to the Dutch rail market. This market can be characterised as a monopsony. The market volume generated by ProRail, the largest principal in this market, decreased in the past few years. ProRail actively supports new parties in their attempts to access this market, which is complex both in terms of technology and logistics. As the market leader, Strukton is confronted with the consequences of this policy. In order to remain competitive, Strukton is continually alert on keeping the size of the organisation and the quality proposition at market level.

Strukton also invests in research & development to create solutions that distinguish Strukton in the market. In addition, Strukton reinforces its activities outside the Netherlands and aims to expand the activities in the Dutch rail market towards non-ProRail work (private parties and railway connections) and municipal transit companies.
