Room to grow

From a modest start of 50 employees, Siemens rail manufacturing plant in Sacramento,CA, now employs more than 800 people in a recently expanded 580,000 sq. ft. facility. In Portland, OR, employees are building electrification equipment. And our rail signaling and control equipment is manufactured in New York City, Pittsburgh, PA, and Louisville and Marion, KY. With the advent of high-speed rail in California, our facilities across the U.S. are expected to grow.


The strongest commitment to sustainability under the sun
