The acquisition will reinforce Alstom’s position in the North American transit signalling market by combining the two companies’ advanced technology products and engineering capabilities and enhance Alstom’s systems engineering and wayside application capabilities.
The acquisition will also provide B&C Transit with access to Alstom’s worldwide presence and offer opportunities to broaden and scale-up its operations.
B&C Transit employs approximately 85 people across the United States and had a turnover of $US 45m in 2020. The company has previously worked on projects such as the San Francisco’s Central Subway project, and Miami-Dade’s Metrorail control centre and systems.
“B&C Transit’s expertise in signalling and communications engineering and design is the perfect complement to Alstom’s advanced technology solutions,” says Mr Jérôme Wallut, senior vice-president for Alstom North America. “Customers will benefit from additional resource capacity and an extensive footprint across North America that will further enable localized development, delivery and support.”
