Bombardier: 20 years at full speed
Mexico City.- Everything is running smoothly for Bombardier; 20 years after establishing in Mexico, at Ciudad Sahagun, Hidalgo, they are exporting locomotives, suburban, underground and light trains, among others to Malaysia, Canada (Toronto) and the United States (Maryland, Chicago and NY), in addition to serving the domestic market.
Jean Francois Cloutier, Operations President for Bombardier, said that as of last year the Group’s Transportation Division started a US$5 million investment in Mexico, to develop a generic platform for light trains, to meet the needs in the Mexican market and the rest of Latin America.
Cloutier speaks about the plant located some 55 miles northeast of Mexico City, which is the core of this Division: around 1,000 employees which will either make subassemblies or produce complete trains, tailor projects to customers’ needs and then provide maintenance
