160+ years of innovation

Alstom is a mobility technology leader in the U.S., with a history dating back more than 160 years. Alstom transfers technology and localizes manufacturing to create new, sustainable, high-tech engineering and industrial jobs across the country to serve domestic and international customers. Alstom products can be found across the U.S., unbeknownst to most transit users. Its history is steeped in its experience building and repairing rail cars and locomotives, and in supplying signaling solutions for America’s great cities and agencies, such as New York City, Chicago, Atlanta, Washington, D.C., New Jersey Transit, Caltrans, and Amtrak, as well as America’s freight railroads. To date, Alstom has delivered more than 8,000 new or renovated vehicles and more than 50% of signaling for North America’s rail network.

Alstom’s industrial and operational presence supports customers from coast to coast: supporting customers from Mare Island, CA, Naperville, IL, and Hornell, NY with scalable solutions from full maintenance to modernization to technical support and spares supplies; leveraging major engineering development centers in Rochester, NY and Melbourne, FL to provide a complete suite of critical safety and operational control products and services for rail industry; and building next generation high-speed trainsets for America in America, in upstate New York. Alstom’s presence in the U.S. continues to expand, as the company looks to fill end-to-end manufacturing positions, from design, industrial and mechanical engineering to sourcing and supply chain, from project management to production to testing.

Alstom can achieve 95% domestic content or higher on its railcars and works with over 500 suppliers across the United States to build modern passenger railcars domestically, embracing the local competences, skills sets and expertise to hire this generation and train future generations of engineers, mechanics, welders, logistics planners and an entire chain of workers ready to innovate and bring new technologies to America.

As it ensures customers more effective solutions and reduced total cost of ownership, innovation is a source of competitiveness and differentiation for Alstom as well as a catalyst for new contracts and markets. Main programs include complete renewal of mainline and urban train ranges as well as latest innovation in systems, signaling and services, from Avelia Liberty high speed trainsets for the Northeast Corridor to the ONIX 671 traction system, specifically developed for the U.S. subway/metro market. Alstom intends to take full advantage of the digitalization trend and is fully focused on a forward-looking approach to understand and meet the expectations of operators and passengers, who are central to its innovation strategy. To improve customer satisfaction, Alstom executes its contracts with a focus on ensuring the highest standards in quality, costs and lead times. This operational excellence goes hand in hand with a commitment to environmental performance in response to high market demand for products (energy savings), manufacturing processes (eco-design and green materials) and lifecycle management (recycling).

  • Bringing high-speed to America

    In 2016, United States’ rail operator and Alstom’s long-time customer, Amtrak, chose Alstom to supply 28 Avelia Liberty trainsets for the country’s main high-speed service on the heavily travelled Northeast Corridor. Designed for passenger comfort, this new-generation train incorporates the very latest technologies in high speed, welcomes more passengers and significantly reduces energy consumption. Alstom will also provide Amtrak with long-term technical support and supply spare components and parts for the maintenance of the new trainsets. The train can travel at speeds up to 186 mph but will initially run at a maximum speed of 160 mph based on NEC track speed limits. The Avelia Liberty for Amtrak is 95% Made in America, and is being built at Alstom’s Hornell, New York, site. Alstom will support the maintenance of the new trainsets via a specific Technical Support and Spare Supply Agreement.
