Siemens Mobility expands facility in Munich-Allach

Final Assembly at Siemens Mobility’s facility in Munich Allach

“Our facility in Allach is one of the most modern locomotive factories in Europe, using the latest innovative technologies like laser welding robots, augmented reality, and 3D simulations with digital twins. The added capacities will enable us to increase production output and meet growing market demand in Europe. We’ll now be able to build more than 300 locomotives a year in Allach and create new, highly qualified jobs in the plant,” said Albrecht Neumann, CEO Rolling Stock at Siemens Mobility.
“Following last year’s expansion of our depot and service network in Novara, Italy, and Bratislava, Slovakia, we are continuing to develop and extend service locations along the trans-European rail corridors. By expanding the competence center for locomotives at our traditional company location in Munich-Allach, our customers will benefit from the additional capacities and our wide range of preventive and corrective maintenance offers. The close interaction between the Rail Service Center and data center enables us to continually evolve and refine our digital services based on Railigent X. As a result, we can also ensure up to 100 percent availability for the locomotives,” commented Johannes Emmelheinz, CEO Customer Services at Siemens Mobility.
The plant in Munich-Allach was built by Krauss-Maffei early in the 20th century. Siemens completely took over the locomotive business from Krauss-Maffei in 2001 and launched production of Vectron locomotives in Allach in 2010. More than 1,600 of these locomotives have since been sold worldwide. In 2015, Siemens Mobility’s service business opened its Rail Service Center and data center in Allach to optimally leverage synergies between production and service.

Ongoing investments in production automation and process digitalization keep the plant competitive and ensure the highest level of process reliability and quality.
