Jul 28 2017 (13:10)   Siemens, Bombardier Train Manufacturing Talks Advance
Entry# 2364786   News Entry# 309867         Tags   Past Edits
German conglomerate Siemens and Canadian aerospace company Bombardier are reportedly close to forming joint ventures focused on train production.
Bloomberg, citing sources familiar with the matter, reported last month that the companies were in talks that would combine their existing train operations into two ventures.
Bombardier would control the train manufacturing business while Siemens would run a venture that would make train signaling equipment.
companies are currently cutting jobs amid pressure in the train manufacturing market from China’s CRRC Corp., which formed when that country’s two largest train producers merged in 2015.
One analyst told Bloomberg that Siemens, in particular, could benefit from controlling the signaling equipment businesses, which features higher profit margins.
In addition, Siemens and Bombardier currently operate in many of the same areas in Europe.
A deal is expected to be finalized soon, but key obstacles remain in the companies’ discussions, and Bloomberg notes that any agreement would need support from elected officials, antitrust authorities and unions — particularly in Germany.

* India is a huge Market for high tech railway equipments, & train manufacturers.
* It is a golden opportunity for European/American to stand in competition with China's CRRC, as they may get preference due to not so good diplomatic relation between China & India.
* They can further compete with Chinese manufactures by establishing their new factories in India under "Make in India" campaign of Govt of India to cut down their manufacturing costs and then supply the products in India as well as other countries.
Indian made Metro trains are already being exported to other developed nations like Australia. With construction of Mumbai-Ahmedabad HST project set to take off, now it is time to manufacture HSTs and associated equipments at India and export to other nations.
