Siemens Mobility is a division of the German conglomerate Siemens. Prior to the corporate restructuring of Siemens AG (effective from 1 January 2008) Siemens Transportation Systems was the operational division most closely related to Siemens Mobility; products produced included automation and power systems, rolling stock for mass transit, railway signalling and control systems, and railway electrification. The group also incorporated the former railway rolling stock and locomotive division Siemens Schienenfahrzeugtechnik (Siemens Railway Technology).

History[edit]

On 26 September 2017, the company announced a proposal to merge with Alstom Transport of France, with the objective of creating "a new European champion in the rail industry".[2] The combined rail business, to be named Siemens Alstom and headquartered in Paris, would have $18 billion U.S. in revenue and would employ 62,300 people in more than 60 countries.[3] Seen as a measure to counter the rise of China's CRRC with support from both the French and German governments, the transaction, due to close by the end of 2018, has seen opposition by locals due to possible job cuts resulting from the merger.[4]

On 6th of February 2019 the European Commission [5] prohibited the planned merger.
