May 5, 2017 – CRRC has announced it will build a plant in Canada to further expand its marketing channels in North America. The plant will manufacture heavy load, special railway vehicles and railway vehicle brakes.
The new facility, located in Moncton, N.B., will create more than 200 jobs in the first phase and generate more than $1 million in tax revenue for the local government annually, says the company.
The plant was jointly set up by Sichuan-based CRRC Meishan Co., Ltd, a freight train maker under CRRC, Moncton-based ARS Canada Rolling Stock Inc, a local railcar manufacturer and service supplier, and a CRRC subsidiary in Hong Kong. They gained approval from the Canadian government in June 2016.
