The Braunschweig site of Siemens Mobility, the world’s largest and oldest development and production site for signalling and rail automation technologies, celebrated its 150th anniversary yesterday.

Guests attending the event included Volker Wissing, the Federal Minister for Digital Affairs and Transport, Olaf Lies, the Lower Saxony Minister for Economic Affairs, Transport, Housing and Digitalization, and Roland Busch, CEO of Siemens AG. Founded by Braunschweig businessman Max Jüdel and mechanical engineer Heinrich Büssing in 1873, the factory was taken over in stages by Siemens in the following decades. Innovations from Braunschweig have consistently shaped the development of railway infrastructure worldwide. Today, Siemens Mobility continues to research and develop technology at its Braunschweig facility that makes rail infrastructure more efficient, sustainable, and reliable.

“Over the past 150 years, our site in Braunschweig has been the think tank for the rail transportation of yesterday, today and tomorrow,” noted Andre Rodenbeck, CEO of Siemens Mobility Rail Infrastructure. “Today, we not only can look back on a long history of pioneering work accomplished here for rail transportation in Germany and the world, but also look to the future. Siemens Mobility has created a unique product portfolio, invested heavily in this site, built up a highly qualified team, and created optimal production conditions. We are ready and eager to play a major role in shaping the mobility of tomorrow with our innovations from Braunschweig,” continued Rodenbeck.
