On January 29, Alstom and Bombardier closed the agreement to acquire the Canadian company’s railway division, making Alstom the second largest company globally in this sector, with sales of nearly 15.7 billion euros and 75,000 employees.

Following the integration of Bombardier Transportation’s legal entities in Spain and Portugal, the Group employs close to 3,000 professionals in the region, spread over 27 workplaces.
