Alstom to increase its India team by 700 new employees within the next three years

Alstom to increase its India team by 700 new employees within the next three years

Alstom, a French multinational company, is planning to expand its workforce in India to 500-550 employees by the end of this year. The company’s primary focus is to manufacture signaling components within the country. Over the next three years, Alstom aims to produce 15% of its signaling components in India, with the design work taking place at its Hyderabad facility. The company is seeking partnerships with local manufacturers for the production process.

Alstom’s long-term plan is to increase the employee count to 700 over the next three years. To support this expansion, the company has launched its largest center of excellence (CoE) in Bengaluru, which will focus on signaling technologies and system integration for global rail-mobility projects.

This strategic move comes after Alstom’s successful implementation of the European Train Control System (ETCS) signaling system in India’s inaugural regional rapid transit system (RRTS) in October 2023. This innovative technology promises increased efficiency in India’s rail networks and optimizes capacity utilization.

Alstom is actively engaged in 19 ongoing projects in India, including the second phase of the National Capital Region Transport Corporation (NCRTC), and a portfolio of 62 global projects. The company’s commitment extends beyond project execution as it aims to enhance its signaling projects and research and development (R&D) footprint in Delhi from the current 100 employees to an ambitious 700 within the next three to five years.

Alstom’s comprehensive approach strengthens its global presence and signifies a substantial investment in India’s rail infrastructure development.
