“The highly-prized accolade Manufacturer of the Year underscores our capability as a provider of light rail solutions and as a reliable partner for our customers,” said Germar Wacker, president, light rail vehicles, Bombardier Transportation, upon receiving the award from the UK Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport, Norman Baker.
