Bombardier Transportation in Hungary

Mátranovák is the main welded-structure manufacturing site of Bombardier Transportation in Central Europe. The factory was built between 1969 and 1980 to produce steel structures for GANZ-MÁVAG and was bought by Bombardier in 2005. Since then, it has operated as a bogie-frame manufacturing centre of expertise. Currently the site produces high-quality steel bogie frames for passenger train cars and high-speed trains, as well as for metros and trams. The bogie-frame components produced on site are assembled into complete bogies at Bombardier’s production sites in Crespin, France and Siegen, Germany. The complete trains built at these two sites are in use with railways in countries including Germany, France, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Austria and Sweden.

In Hungary there are almost 30 TRAXX locomotives in service (25 passenger vehicles owned by MAV and 2 freight owned by Eurocom).
