Now more than ever before America needs rail investment.For more than 150 years, the U.S. economy has been fueled by rail. From the steam engine replacing the covered wagon that carried people across the continent to moving business travelers from New York to Washington, D.C., rail has shaped the way we live, move and conduct business. It has transformed the way our communities have been built and the way goods are brought to market. But while the American legacy has been built on rail, today's rail networks are falling behind the rest of the world. Rail investment provides a path to economic recovery, while creating high-wage, high-skill jobs. It ensures the U.S. remains competitive in the global marketplace, while providing sustainable transportation. The time to invest in rail is now.
Siemens Mobility launches #AmericanMade video series on the critical need for rail infrastructure in America. The series calls for congressional leaders to take action for jobs, for the economy, and for the environment.
Investing in rail today will renew America as the land of opportunity. Through high-wage, high-skill jobs to build infrastructure that will move goods more quickly and connect people to possibilities. Sustainable solutions are ready to address our transportation crisis.
Pioneering in America, from the first mile to the last. This is what drives us.For more than 160 years, Siemens has been an integral provider of infrastructure, electrification and transportation solutions in the United States. From the first streetcar that was delivered to San Diego, Siemens Mobility has contributed to the power of connection, jobs and investment to our American cities with eight manufacturing facilities, nearly 4,000 employees and more than 2,000 suppliers across the United States.

Thirty years ago, in 1991 Siemens Mobility decided to lay down permanent roots in Sacramento and build a manufacturing plant to include engineering, sub-assembly, vehicle assembly and office space. What began as a temporary assembly facility in 1984, when Siemens Mobility began operations to fulfill the first U.S. light rail vehicle order for San Diego became a permanent home with a promising future for growth.
Staying in Sacramento and investing over $10 million in the facility in just the past 10 years, Siemens Mobility is committed to this community and providing skilled jobs from manufacturing and welding to engineering and project management.
Today, nearly 2,000 proud workers build and service a growing portfolio that now includes light rail, locomotives, passenger cars and trainsets. What was once a small final assembly building on a tiny piece of land is now a sprawling manufacturing facility. Solar powered by the California sun, expanded across 60 acres of land, with 13 buildings and a live test track. American workers of many skill levels come together here to serve the unique needs of the U.S. rail market. We are America’s one stop shop for rolling stock vehicles and service.
