DB International GmbH (formerly DE-Consult) is one of the world’s leading consulting and engineering companies. The firm provides consultancy services in the transportation sector, particularly in the fields of railways and rapid transit systems.
The company was established in 1966 by the Deutsche Bahn AG (German Railway), formerly Deutsche Bundesbahn, and the Deutsche Bank AG under the name of DE-Consult Deutsche Eisenbahn-Consulting GmbH. In January 2007 the name of the company was changed to DB International GmbH and is now a 100% subsidiary of Deutsche Bahn AG.
The progressing globalisation and internationalisation followed by associated changes in the market and customer relationships have resulted in an increasing significance of railway services worldwide. Following this challenge the Deutsche Bahn AG has decided to provide its unique railway know-how in the future through one single source, DB International, covering project development from the first concept through to its realisation.
While DB International can draw on the wealth of technical and operational expertise and experience of the German Railway its operation is completely independent of the parent companies and is also free from all production and supply interests.
Since its foundation, DB International has worked in more than 100 countries involving more than 2,000 projects. Knowledge of German technology is thus supplemented by comprehensive experience gained on international projects.
The company is represented by branch offices in Germany and maintains a large number of project offices overseas. DB International branch offices are located in Abu Dhabi (United Arab Emirates), Algiers (Algeria), Athens (Greece), Bangkok (Thailand), Beijing (China), Bucharest (Romania), Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia), Taipei (Taiwan), Vilnius (Lithuania) and Moscow (Russia) which is presently being established.
