In May 2008, Bombardier and TMH signed an agreement to form a joint company for the production of locomotives. The equal share companies were organised under the previously formed Bombardier Transportation Transmashholding AG, one as an engineering design centre: Transmashholding Bombardier Transportation (Engineering) Rus and another for the manufacturing of inverter drives (based on Bombardier's MITRAC technology) used in electric locomotives: Transmashholding Bombardier Transportation (Industrial) Rus.
In April 2007, Knorr-Bremse AG and Transmashholding agreed to create a Russian joint venture to manufacture, sell and service rail vehicle braking systems in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States.
In December 2007, ALSTOM and Transmasholding signed a cooperation agreement that would lead to the formation of joint ventures for the production of railway components in Russia. In October 2008 the partnership was further extended by the formation of a 51:49 joint venture for the production of double decker coaches TMH-Alstom DV. This intent was ratified on 31 March 2009, with Alstom providing ongoing technical expertise for the modernisation of TMH's production sites, and the development of new locomotive platforms; with TMH undertaking more than 75% of the manufacturing. At the same time Alstom took a 25(+1)% stake in TMH's capital holding company.
In April 2013, Alstom and Transmashholding inaugurated a joint production site intended to asynchronous traction motors for electric locomotives in Novocherkassk, that would later be used to equip the locomotives jointly developed and manufactured by Alstom and TMH for Russia and Kazakhstan. The inauguration ceremony was held in the presence of Russian Railways Senior Vice-President Valentin Gapanovich, TMH Managing Director Andrey Andreev, and Alstom Transport President, Henri Poupart-Lafarge.
By late 2015 Alstom had increased its shareholding in Transmashholding by 8% from 25 to 33% for €54 million.
Transconverter was formed as a joint venture with Siemens in April 2005 for the production of electrical equipment (high voltage static converters).
- Fahrzeugtechnik Dessau AG (Fahrzeugtechnik Dessau (German)) was part of Transmashholding from 2006 to 2008 and was taken over by the Romanian CTF at the end of 2008.
Transmasholding manufactures diesel-locomotive shunters, main-line and electric industrial locomotives, passenger and freight cars, electric train cars, locomotive and marine diesels, car castings and other products. The company has provided railcars to Warsaw Metro and Baku Metro, among others.
