3M Rail Systems and Specialty Vehicles Market Manager - Umut Özyol


3M Rail Systems and Specialty Vehicles Market Manager Umut Özyol: As 3M, we are pleased to participate in the exhibition as it gives us the opportunity to communicate solutions that we provided for the rolling stock industry for many years to the industry stakeholders properly.

Eurasia Rail, which is the world's 3rd largest rolling stock exhibition, will bring together the key players of the rolling stock industry in the surrounding region in fuarizmir between April 10-12, 2019. The latest developments, innovations, technologies, and investments in the industry will be addressed in the Conference Program that will be held simultaneously with the exhibition.

Prior to the exhibition, we held an interview with Umut Özyol, 3M Rail Systems and Special Vehicles Market Manager and the sponsor of our session titled as “Localization and Investments in Urban Railways” to be held on April 10 and he commented on Eurasia Rail and the industry.

In Eurasia Rail, conference sessions and technical seminars are organized in order to create an information environment, to offer professionals the opportunity to develop networks, and to give inspiration through content. Why it is important to create such a program for both participants and visitors?  

 As you mentioned, Eurasia Rail is an organization where people can share information and keep track of all trends related to rail systems, which is a growing trend in our country. Particularly, the participation of international companies such as 3M to the organization provides a highly important meeting point for sharing their global experiences gained over many years with both the industry professionals and manufacturers.  Moreover, conferences addressing the new trends and the future of the industry will provide exhibitors with access to real information.

In your opinion, which topics require special attention this year? Which are the topics that the audience must pay careful attention and apply in their industries?

Localization in rail systems is a very important issue for our country. Especially the National Train Project and tenders for light rail systems will become a rising trend in the coming period. After looking at the 10-year plans made for our big cities, I think that we should achieve a significant production volume when it comes to infrastructure and the number of vehicles. In this context, domestic manufacturers in our country will be able to find the opportunity to show the industry stakeholders that they are ready to take part in the localization process in this grand exhibition where they will analyze the requirements as well as the standards and offer the relevant solutions. Careful attention must be paid to issues related to the scope of localization and investment processes. In addition, our manufacturers need to integrate many innovations providing fast, comfortable, accessible, and safe transportation for millions of people to their production process in order to meet the increasing demand for mobility.

Besides, we are aware that energy conversation, lightness, and security issues are important for our customers and we develop and offer customized solutions to meet these requirements.   
 
What makes Eurasia Rail important for our country? Why should professional manufacturers or rail operating companies within the industry participate in this exhibition? Or, why should an industry professional visit the exhibition?

Eurasia Rail 2019, the International Rolling Stocks, Infrastructure & Logistics Exhibition, significantly contributes to our country as being the one and only rolling stock exhibition to be held in Turkey where the rolling stock investments are on the rise.  The exhibition, which hosts both domestic manufacturers and global companies, attracts attention as being the meeting point of private and public sectors. Unlike previous years, the fact that the exhibition will be held in İzmir in every two years provides an opportunity for the exhibitors to follow the sectoral trends in our country. As 3M, we are pleased to participate in the exhibition as it gives us the opportunity to communicate solutions that we provided for the rolling stock industry for many years to the industry stakeholders correctly. For this reason, industry professionals can use this platform efficiently to access correct information they need faster.
