Bombardier Transportation Australia

Bombardier Transportation has enjoyed a 60+ year presence in Australia as a complete rail solution provider.

With local design, engineering, manufacturing and delivery capabilities, we also provide solutions for signalling, propulsion and control technology, asset management and through-life support to its customers. Our centres of excellence in industrial design and engineering are based across both Queensland and Victoria and position us well to provide local solutions for local conditions.

At Bombardier, we have built an extensive and diverse portfolio of winning mobility solutions, but it’s not just our products and services that make us a global leader. The most important success factor of our business is our employees. With skills and talent development initiatives such as the Apprentice & Graduate Program, Welders Training School and High Potential Development Program, our employees are dedicated to fulfilling our vision for more efficient, sustainable and innovative mobility ecosystem across Australia. 


With more than 1,000 employees across every state, our national operations are headquartered at our manufacturing hub in Victoria, with established maintenance facilities in Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Adelaide.

Australians place high value on local content, employment and opportunity. Bombardier has, as a result, built strong long-term partnerships with more than 1,500 Australian suppliers, with a commitment to growing this footprint. This healthy supply chain plays a significant role in Bombardier’s ability to contribute towards growing the rail and manufacturing industry across Australia.

We’re changing the way people travel. Looking far into the future whilst delivering today, we’re pushing the boundaries and evolving mobility worldwide by answering the call for more efficient, sustainable, and enjoyable rail transportation everywhere.
