Alstom Adding Jobs (full text below)
The Rail Company Plans to Add Another 80 Jobs in Henrietta This Year
WHAM-AM 1180 – March 29, 2011

A local maker of railroad equipment is hiring. Alstom, the French company which has operations in West Henrietta and in Hornell, is in the process of filling 80 positions. They have already hired 100 people in recent months. Alstom is mainly hiring for engineering and technical jobs, for its signaling operation in Henrietta.

Local president Ian Desouza tells WHAM News that after a rail accident in California in 2008 it meant that new signaling equipment was needed by a lot of railroad operations, and that has meant greater demand for Alstom's products.

"That has mandated that all the railroads and passenger and freight systems have to upgrade their safety architecture and we build the product that serves that."

Alstom now has about 500 employees in Henrietta and another 100 in Hornell.
