Made in the USA

Bombardier supplies passenger rail vehicles, propulsion and control equipment, rail control and signalling systems, and complete transportation systems to major transit and airport authorities across the United States. The vast majority of this equipment is built at our three manufacturing facilities in Plattsburgh, Pittsburgh, and West Mifflin

Plattsburgh (New York)

Plattsburgh is Bombardier’s final assembly and test center for rail cars being delivered in the U.S. marketplace. Opened in 1995 to support projects for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) of New York, Plattsburgh now delivers rail cars to customers across the nation.

We have recently broadened the skill set and capabilities at Plattsburgh through the transfer of stainless steel welding technology and equipment, thus expanding the facility’s mandate to include building car shells. Other capabilities recently added at the site are assembly of trucks and door systems. Since 1995, Bombardier’s capital investment in the Plattsburgh site has totaled more than $25 million.

Our Plattsburgh plant is certified ISO 9001:2008 (Quality Management System), ISO 14001:2004 (Environmental Management System) and OHSAS 18001 (Health & Safety Management System).

Pittsburgh (Pennsylvania)

Our Pittsburgh plant is the global production facility of our fully Automated People Mover (APM), monorail and rubber-tired rapid transit technologies.

The products we build at this plant include the INNOVIA APM 100, INNOVIA APM 200, the INNOVIA APM 256, and the INNOVIA Monorail. The plant is also responsible for the development and implementation of our CITYFLO 550 fixed block automatic train control (ATC) solution and our CITYFLO 650 communications-based ATC, as well as our SEKURFLO transit security family of products.
