Electroputere VFU (former Remar S.A.) is an industrial engineering and manufacturing company based in Paşcani, Iaşi County, Romania. The company is a leader in the Romanian spare parts segment.


Founded in 1869, as Atelierele C.F.R. (C.F.R. Works) Paşcani, and later renamed Remar - „REparatii MAterial Rulant” (Rolling Stock Repairing), the company specialized in new construction, reconstruction, modernization and repairing of railway vehicles and spare parts manufacturing for rolling stock and related industries.[2]

In 2004, after the privatization process, Remar Paşcani became part of Grup Feroviar Român.[2] In 2013, the name was changed to Electroputere VFU.
