  11. Siemens to merge with French firm instead of Bombardier

    Wesley Mallin

    Reporter, BBC Radio Derby

    German train company Siemens has opted to sign a merger deal with french firm Alstom rather than Bombardier.

    Reports some months ago suggested Bombardier, which has a major manufacturing base in Derby, was in "advanced talks" with Siemens over plans to merge - but that's fallen through.


    Alstom makes France's high speed TGV trains.

    There's no clear indication the decision will have any effect on Bombardier's Derby operation.
