Innovation and traditional values for the benefit of our customers

For more than 100 years now, the name Waggonbau Graaff has stood for professionalism and reliability in railway wagon construction. And today as ever, we are responding to the demands of the future with innovative logistics solutions.

From 1914 to the present day, we have been manufacturing wagons at our headquarters in Elze. Series production of tank wagons for industry began in 1921. From 1950 onwards, Waggonbau Graaff has systematically expanded its range of products for the railway. The range covers freight wagons for domestic and foreign railways as well as special tank wagons for chemical products.

We offer many decades of experience and state-of-the-art manufacturing technology along with a highly-qualified, dedicated team of staff. It is this very combination that makes us the right partner for companies looking for the highest quality and on-time delivery. Waggonbau Graaff has a production capacity of about 450 wagons per year.


We are continually working in harmony with the demands imposed by increasingly stringent legal and technical regulations, environmental protection measures and the increasing efficiency of logistics networks.

DIN EN ISO 9001 certification ensures that we offer the highest quality and that each step in our production and planning processes is transparent and traceable.
