By increasing its production capacity, Siemens Mobility aims to meet the growing demand for passenger rail in the US, which has been propelled by the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law.

Marc Buncher, CEO of Siemens Mobility North America said:

“A huge milestone in the opening of this new facility, our team is excited about our future in Lexington and the great state of North Carolina. This is not just an investment in rail, but an investment in manufacturing, jobs, sustainability, digitalisation and the future of modern transportation.”

Siemens Mobility first announced its intention to build a new coach manufacturing factory in Lexington in March 2023.

When it opens in 2024, the site will incorporate many of the latest technologies found in Siemens’ Sacramento facility. This includes robotic welding, 3D printing and Virtual Reality welder training.

In addition, it will also include a first-of-its-kind locomotive and passenger coach overhaul facility.

Michael Cahill, President Rolling Stock, Siemens Mobility North America said:

“Our new east coast hometown will soon be a powerhouse when it comes to rail manufacturing. Complementing our operations in Sacramento, our bi-coastal facilities will work together to manufacture the latest rail technology and transform the everyday for communities across the country.”
