100 years of delighting our customers and their passengers

Most notably the design of the Shinkansen bullet trains and support of the service operation in Japan have provided Hitachi with a rich heritage of technical expertise and untiring research and development, which is utilised across our European product range.

To meet a growing range of demands, Hitachi has implemented new methods of vehicle construction and manufacturing based on our AT series product platform. Trains derived from the concept have delivered an outstanding level of quality that has exceeded the expectations even of Japanese railway operators, known the world over for exacting standards for reliability.
