BOMBARDIER ADDING SECOND ASSEMBLY LINE IN LOYALIST FACILITY
2/8/2018 12:26:29 PM
Bombardier is setting up a second production line in Lennox & Addington County to build T-T-C streetcars as the company steps up efforts to meet the final deadline for Toronto's problem-plagued vehicle order. According to a schedule the company has provided to the T-T-C, the addition of a second production line to complement the one at its Thunder Bay plant will allow Bombardier to deliver 65 cars this year, and 77 in 2019. That would enable it to meet the contract deadline of supplying all 204 of the cars by the end of next year. Bombardier wouldn't disclose how much it's investing to set up the new production line, but said it will require the addition of at least 100 positions at the company, most of which will be new hires. The first T-T-C car from the Loyalist Township plant is expected to arrive in the third quarter of 2018.
