Chennai, Monday, October 17, 2014: Electro-Motive Diesel, Inc. (EMD), one of the leading global locomotive manufacturers, is expanding its base in India with a new world class facility at Noida to better serve Indian Railways (IR) and other global customers. Today, EMD, a fully owned subsidiary of Progress Rail Services, a Caterpillar Company, offers complete railroad solutions to railways across the world, including locomotives, track, repower, signaling and safety technologies.

Billy Ainsworth, Progress Rail and EMD president and chief executive officer said, “EMD is committed to investing in India to support Indian Railways in future technology. In order to provide effective support to IR, we have increased our indigenization in India by inaugurating our new facility in Noida today.”
