Hitachi Rail is improving mobility throughout the USA and Canada, providing passengers, customers and communities with the benefits of seamless, sustainable journeys.
Investing in North America
We are making significant investments in passenger and freight rail transportation in North America, with investments going beyond just the railways. Our projects support both the economy and regional supply chains, allowing us to work with local subcontractors and diverse businesses while contributing to the communities in which we are located.
Hitachi Rail is located across several North American locations, including our HQ located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, a signaling manufacturing plant in Batesburg, and train manufacturing plants in Miami and now Washington County, Maryland. The new $70M train factory and 800-yard test track, is set to be constructed on a 41-acre site located in the Washington DC region. When complete, the factory will sustain 1,300 jobs.
Our 1,000 rail experts are currently delivering projects for Miami, launching pioneering autonomous trains for Honolulu and building trains with the latest digital signaling systems for Baltimore. We also have a range of signaling projects in delivery across America for both passenger transit and freight operators - providing safe, green, reliable services.
Hitachi Rail Canada have agreed contracts for signal system maintenance, with plans to produce state of the art train cars for the Ontario train system.
We are committed to growing our business into the future as an integral provider of infrastructure and transportation solutions in the USA and Canada.
