Bombardier to increase headcount by over 10% at Polish rail equipment unit


Bombardier Transportation (BT), the rail solutions division of the global transportation group, plans to hire 50-60 engineers at Bombardier Transportation Polska (formerly ZWUS), a Katowice-based maker of automatic steering and signalling systems which it bought from the Polish government in 2011, it emerged on 16 April. More hiring will follow at a later date, as BT Polska increases capacity and strengthens quality to facilitate an aggressive push beyond the domestic market, Slawomir Nalewajka, who heads the Polish unit, indicated. Initially the focus will fall on the markets of the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Ukraine and Belarus, where the company is already competing or is about to compete for major contracts, and in the future BT Polska could serve all the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, Mr. Nalewajka said.

To ensure an adequate supply of rail engineers, Bombardier has entered into talks with technical universities in Warsaw and Radom about creating special training programmes there.

At present BT Polska employs 487 people.
