Bombardier Transportation opens Saxony production hall
Date:2018-06-28 Readers:
MONTREAL-HEADQUARTERED Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation has opened a new final assembly hall at its Bautzen plant in Saxony, Germany.

The company has invested EUR8 million (US$9.3 million) in the final assembly hall, as part of a EUR30 million investment in the site. The assembly hall can produce up to 600 intercity, regional, suburban, metro or light rail vehicles a year, according to Bombardier Transportation, the new hall can save around EUR1 million each year in terms of logistics, energy and maintenance costs.

About 500 employees will work in the facility, which boasts a total 8,100 square metres of factory floorspace, according to AJOT.

Prime Minister of Saxony, Michael Kretschmer, said: "Today is a good day for Bautzen and Upper Lusatia. The investment now planned will secure 1,000 jobs here at Bombardier, and many more for the suppliers in the region.

"We have been through some difficult negotiations and some very uncertain times. I am very grateful to all those who supported the retention of the plants in both Bautzen and Gorlitz. Now, the focus is on creating favourable prospects for the Gorlitz plant as well, because the potential that exists there is not yet exhausted."

Head of Bombardier Transportation in Germany, Michael Fohrer, commented: "We are investing in, and establishing, a competence centre for the series production of regional and intercity trains as well as commuter and metro trains, and trams. These are powerful arguments for the plant's bright and promising future."
