Hitachi Will Manufacture AT300 Trains in Italy: According to the statement made by Hitachi on December 22, AT300 trains ordered by the Great Western Railway (GWR) for use in the UK will be produced at the company's factory in Pistoia in Italy.
The 361 million-euro agreement signed last July, although the country in which the trains were produced was different, and the agreement with Hitachi, which was concluded in November, ended with an amendment in AnsaldoBreda. As a result, it was announced that AT300 trains would be produced in Italy.
Maurizio Manfelletto, CEO of Hitachi Rail Italy, said the new version of the agreement would be more beneficial in both sides. He also pointed out the importance of the company's presence in Italy, adding that it is extremely important and that they will do their best to provide better service to customers by improving this presence.
