Company Background

CRRC is China's state-owned train manufacturer formed through a recent megamerger of CSR and China CNR. It virtually monopolizes China's rail car market and is the world's largest train manufacturer, with a 50% share of subway cars around the globe.

Its origins can be traced back to the Qing dynasty in the late 1800s. After the establishment of the People's Republic of China in 1949, CRRC made rail cars as a state-owned train maker under the former Ministry of Railways. CRRC was split into CSR and CNR in 2000 following state-owned company reforms. However, it merged again as a gigantic train maker at the request of President Xi Jinping's administration, a proponent for Chinese companies expanding overseas.

CRRC is focused on exporting high-speed railways. In an effort to adopt train manufacturing technology, CSR has so far teamed up with Japan's Kawasaki Heavy Industries and Canada's Bombardier, while CNR has partnered with Germany's Siemens and France's Alstom. The consolidation will enable CRRC to merge advanced technology. It also manufactures train driving and control components, which have had to be imported in the past.

As the government has 60% of outstanding shares, CRRC's business is inseparably linked to China's national policy. CRRC is eager to take advantage of economies of scale to increase orders from Southeast Asia, Africa and South America.
