On the first day of the InnoTrans 2014 International Fair, NEWAG S.A. and Bombardier A.G. signed a Memorandum of Understanding regarding long-term cooperation in development, manufacturing and selling rail vehicles.
We would like to combine youth with experience, said Zbigniew Konieczek, Newag’s CEO after signing the document whereas Dieter John of Bombardier stated that in reality together we can do everything but it is important that both parties are satisfied and benefit from it. This agreement does not connect the companies to work on one project but is of a permanent, long-term nature. Together we can be more competitive, he added.
Zbigniew Klepacki, Polish Vice Minister for Infrastructure and Development, was present at the signing of the agreement. Newag is a very important Polish company. Although Bombardier is a foreign company, it has a long presence in our country. The government, which I represent, will do everything to assist you in this cooperation, he said.
