CRRC MA, a U.S. rail car manufacturer headquartered in Quincy, Massachusetts, has been awarded transit rail car contracts from Boston’s MBTA, Los Angeles Metro and Philadelphia’s SEPTA.  CRRC MA has established two manufacturing facilities in the U.S., including a $95M investment in Springfield, Massachusetts and a $40M investment in Los Angeles, California.

Progress continues with execution of CRRC MA’s awarded contracts and the U.S. corporation is pleased with the recent passage of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) preserving CRRC MA’s presence in the U.S.   The bill enables the following:

  • CRRC MA to continue its work for the MBTA, SEPTA in Philadelphia, and LA Metro in Los Angeles
  • CRRC MA can complete those contracts and bid on future work
  • CRRC MA also can bid on projects around the country for the next two years.

With the support of Massachusetts Congressman Richard Neal, CRRC MA’s presence in the U.S. and that of the corporation’s unionized workforce has been preserved.   Congressman  Neal has been an unwavering champion protecting  jobs for American workers across the country and locally in his backyard –Springfield, Massachusetts.  His ardent  support and commitment was to ensure CRRC MA remains a competitor in the  passenger rail market. This together with a two-year moratorium allowing the local rail car builder an opportunity to compete for all vehicle procurement bids at transit agencies across the U.S.  will mean more American jobs, many of them unionized. Thanks in no small part to the extraordinary efforts of Congressman Neal, CRRC MA remains a viable competitor in the U.S. rail car market and appreciates Congressman Neal fighting to preserve opportunities for the company and its American workforce.
