Alstom in Poland will employ 200 people at its new site in Nadarzyn and triple production capacity for train bogies in Poland
Cost of investment coming to more than €10 million
Production capacity of up to 3000 bogies a year
First and only high-speed train bogies service center in Poland soon to be opened there
11 October 2022 - Alstom in Poland has launched the production of bogies for regional trains, metros and trams at a new site in Nadarzyn near Warsaw. Two hundred people will be employed at the new site, with the cost of investment coming to more than €10 million. The first bogies have already rolled off the production line. In the near future the site will also perform the maintenance of high-speed train bogies (up to 250 km/h). It will be the first high-speed train bogies service center in Poland.
The new site will take over the production of bogies from the existing Alstom sites in Piaseczno and Wrocław. A production hall with four cranes and office spaces have been built on the area of over one hectare. The site in Nadarzyn will employ fitters, mechanics, electricians, turners, painters, quality control specialists and administrative staff.
“Our new Nadarzyn site is an example of further investments being done by Alstom in Poland. Ultimately in Nadarzyn we will hire 200 people and we are aiming at producing 1800 train bogies a year, that is three times more than today in Piaseczno. Technically, we will be able to produce up to 3000 bogies a year,” explains Sławomir Cyza, CEO and Managing Director of Alstom in Poland, Ukraine and Baltic States.
Alstom has been gaining expertise in the construction of bogies in Poland for many years. In Piaseczno, it has been performing the overhauls of Pendolino bogies and has produced bogies for regional trains. Bogies produced in Poland are parts of Coradia Stream electric multiple units assembled, among others, in Chorzów; most of them are being exported.
