Global workforce, local value-added.

The Rail Vehicle Systems division’s international presence brings it a decisive competitive edge: It is at home in every market in the world.

A local presence around the globe

Our highly qualified employees work at over 60 locations around the world. They speak the local language. They are familiar with the national cultural conventions and legislation. And they provide the necessary proximity to both markets and customers, so that the company is able to play a concrete part in shaping regional market and mobility trends, be it the mass transit sector or in linking major cities.

With firm foundations and agility

Our multilocal presence across the globe helps us achieve a regionally balanced distribution of sales with high local added value. It provides us with agility and serves as a natural hedge against trade barriers and currency fluctuations.

Our ultramodern Development Center in Munich not only provides the firm foundations for this but also acts as the basis for future innovations and multi-system solutions from Germany − tailor-made for the global market.
