CRRC Corporation announced on May 5 that it is planning to build a plant in eastern Canada to manufacture freight wagons and components as it seeks to expand its presence in the North American rolling stock market.

The plant at Moncton in New Brunswick is a joint initiative between CRRC Meishan and local partner ARS Canada Rolling Stock.

CRRC says the new facility will create more than 200 jobs in the first phase of the project.

As well as manufacturing freight wagons for a variety of uses, the new company will carry out research and development work for freight vehicles for the North American market. CRRC says it also aims to provide aftersales services to customers in Canada.
