About TTM Rail
TTM exists with the purpose of improving the sustainability of public transport by helping operators and OEM’s continue to make rail the preferred mode of transport in our cities.
For us, this is achieved by continually challenging and improving on the status quo within our industry, whether relating to the quality of technical solutions, bettering accepted standard practices or even the way we support our customers on a day to day basis. We take immense satisfaction from delving deep into the details and ultimately delivering significant improvements in reliability, safety and efficiency of systems and vehicles for our customers.
Founded in 1997, TTM Rail remains an Australian, family owned and operated company based in the northern suburbs of Melbourne, Victoria. Since our inception, we have focused solely on providing solutions for the rolling stock industry.
We have established ourselves to be one of the preferred suppliers for electrical and electronic rolling stock engineering services within Australia. We have achieved this by providing the skills, expertise and outcomes which challenge the major global suppliers in the industry, whilst maintaining excellent customer service, and the ability to be nimble and flexible to meet the constant change in needs for our customers.
This combination of exceptional technical expertise and continued customer focus has ensured we maintain an excellent ongoing working relationship with our customers.
TTM Rail now operate across two sites in the northern suburb of Epping, VIC.
