Alstom’s acquisition of B&C Transit will reinforce Alstom’s position in the North American transit signaling market by combining the two companies’ advanced technology products and engineering capabilities.

Alstom has acquired California-based transit signaling engineering, design and construction firm B&C Transit.

The acquisition will reinforce Alstom’s position in the North American transit signaling market by combining the two companies’ advanced technology products and engineering capabilities and enhance Alstom’s systems engineering and wayside application capabilities.

The acquisition will also provide B&C Transit with access to Alstom’s worldwide presence and offer opportunities to broaden and scale-up its operations.  

B&C Transit employs approximately 85 people across the United States and had a turnover of $45 million in 2020. The company has previously worked on projects such as the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency (Muni) Central Subway project, and Miami-Dade’s Metrorail control center and systems. 

“B&C Transit’s expertise in signaling and communications engineering and design is the perfect complement to Alstom’s advanced technology solutions,” said Jérôme Wallut, Senior Vice President for Alstom North America. “Customers will benefit from additional resource capacity and an extensive footprint across North America that will further enable localized development, delivery and support.”
