Rail technology leader Bombardier Transportation is joining forces with Electro-Motive Diesel, Inc. (EMD), to assemble diesel electric locomotives in India. Bombardier will deliver diesel locomotives to EMD for its export to Southeast Asia and the Pacific region. This announcement builds upon a similar collaboration between both companies at Bombardier's manufacturing site in Ciudad Sahagun, Mexico.
Bombardier will manufacture components, including underframes and bogies, and assemble the EMD locomotives at its Savli facility in India. EMD will provide all engineering and quality control and will be responsible for product performance.
"Bombardier and EMD will help transform the rail transportation industry in the region by leveraging both of our companies' capabilities," said Andre Navarri, President and Chief Operating Officer, Bombardier Transportation. "By further expanding its global relationship with EMD, Bombardier will provide best-in-class products in keeping with its tradition of quality and extend its range of rail vehicle manufacturing in India."
