A global player fully focused on transport

Leading societies to a low carbon future, Alstom develops and markets mobility solutions that provide the sustainable foundations for the future of transportation.

Alstom’s products portfolio ranges from high-speed trains, metros, monorail, trams and e-buses to integrated systems, customised services, infrastructure, signalling and digital mobility solutions. 

Alstom have built, or are building, just under 40% of the UK mainline train fleet.

Over 100 years of contribution to the United Kingdom's infrastructure

Employing 6,000 people within the UK & Ireland, we are the leading supplier of new trains and train services, and a leading signalling and rail infrastructure provider. Alstom have built, or are building, just under 40% of the UK mainline train fleet; as well as the entire fleets in service with London Underground and Dublin Luas.
We design and build trains at Derby, the UK’s largest train factory; and operate major sites at Widnes, Crewe, Ilford and Plymouth, and 30 train services depots across the UK and Ireland.

Now we are also part of a joint venture to design, build, and maintain the next generation of very high speed trains for HS2, delivering Europe’s fastest operational train, capable of operating at maximum speeds of 225mph (360 km/h). The fleet will be 100% electric and be one of the world’s most energy efficient very high speed trains with aerodynamic design, regenerative power and the latest energy efficient traction technology.

Our Signalling and infrastructure business is underpinned by the winning of framework contracts for 2 of Network Rail’s 5 regions, with a potential value of £750 million for projects across the Southern and Eastern regions. Recently we have helped deliver the underground section of London’s Crossrail, the large Bristol Area Signalling Renewals and Enhancement project and the Leeds Station Capacity Upgrade programme. 

Moreover having been selected as part of a joint venture to design, build, and maintain the HS2 rolling stock, we have also been shortlisted for the corresponding signalling contract, which will see the construction of systems to control trains up the length of the route from London to Birmingham. The contract includes the design, manufacture, supply, installation and inspection of the signalling systems as well as maintenance until handover.
