TRAKO Business Days 2017

A location with international reach

Railway engineering is a pillar of the German Capital Region’s industrial landscape. Berlin-Brandenburg is known all over the world as a traditional location for this industry. With over 100 export-oriented businesses and more than 20,400 employees, the region is one of the most important railway engineering hubs in Europe. The entire value-added chain is represented here and the region is home to major public transport operators (Deutsche Bahn, S-Bahn Berlin, BVG), while leading systems manufacturers, including Siemens (Berlin), Bombardier (Berlin and Hennigsdorf), and Stadler (Berlin and Velten) operate production plants here.

Brandenburg also boasts a wealth of supplier SMEs, especially in Brandenburg-Kirchmöser with companies that specialise in railway construction and maintenance (Voestalpine/BWG and Gleisbaumechanik). Moreover, the Deutsche Bahn maintenance centres in Eberswalde, Cottbus and Wittenberge have a major influence on the region’s job market.

Last but not least, Berlin-Brandenburg is increasingly making a name for itself as an R&D location with institutions of higher education (TU Berlin, BTU Cottbus-Senftenberg and TH Brandenburg) that boast significant innovative potential and can safeguard the region’s engineering expertise. Thanks to numerous research projects and collaborations, Brandenburg’s railway engineering is able to face up to the demand for new system solutions and orchestrate a comprehensive technology transfer.
