Siemens Mobility to Expand Munich-Allach Manufacturing Facility

Siemens Mobility has announced plans to expand its manufacturing facility in Munich-Allach to meet the growing production demands for its Vectron locomotives.

The factory will be enlarged from 50,000 metres-squared to 80,000 metres-squared to provide extra capacity for new orders.

In addition, the expansion will further optimise production and logistics flows and will allow Siemens to build more office space for its growing workforce.

Albrecht Neumann, CEO Rolling Stock at Siemens Mobility said:

“Our facility in Allach is one of the most modern locomotive factories in Europe, using the latest innovative technologies like laser welding robots, augmented reality, and 3D simulations with digital twins. The added capacities will enable us to increase production output and meet growing market demand in Europe. We’ll now be able to build more than 300 locomotives a year in Allach and create new, highly qualified jobs in the plant.”

The Munich-Allach plant was built by Krauss-Maffei in the early 20th century. Siemens took over the business in 2001 and commenced production of Vectron locomotives in Allach in 2010.

Johannes Emmelheinz, CEO Customer Services at Siemens Mobility, said:

“Following last year’s expansion of our depot and service network in Novara, Italy, and Bratislava, Slovakia, we are continuing to develop and extend service locations along the trans-European rail corridors. By expanding the competence centre for locomotives at our traditional company location in Munich-Allach, our customers will benefit from the additional capacities and our wide range of preventive and corrective maintenance offers.”
