More choices for better transportation

Bombardier first quarter results

The Canadian manufacturer is not immune from the international recession. You can read the entire report. Of interest here is the international nature of this industry in which the United States has very little participation.

Subsequent to quarter end, Bombardier Transportation received the following new orders worth $1.2 billion. A contract was awarded for 30 four-car ELECTROSTAR EMU trains plus a three-year maintenance contract from National Express in the United Kingdom (U.K.), valued at $249 million. The group also received an order for 83 EMUs from Deutsche Bahn Regio AG for a value of $605 million. Finally, an order for 180 double-deck commuter cars was awarded by the Regie Autonome des Transports Parisiens (RATP) of France for a value of $386 million.

In China, Bombardier Transportation delivered the first high-speed trains featuring its ZEFIRO technology, only 18 months after the notice to proceed.
