New York  |   April 27, 2020

Siemens Mobility announced it is making donations totaling $150,000 to food banks in 10 cities across the country, to support the friends, local heroes and communities where their employees live, work and play.

 

“We have all been impacted by the pandemic and each community is working to manage through its challenges,” said Marc Buncher, CEO of Siemens Mobility in North America.  “Now, more than ever, we need to unite and support our neighbors. For Siemens Mobility, this means supporting the local communities that we call home.”

 

California Congresswoman Doris Matsui said, “Siemens Mobility is not only an important local job creator, but an active member of the tight-knit Sacramento community. This donation is another example of their strong commitment to our region. During this crisis, it is more important than ever to stay united and support each other as we move towards a better tomorrow.”

 

“Siemens has stepped up to help save lives,” Gov. Andy Beshear of Kentucky said. “In addition to supporting health care needs and critical local government services across the country, the company is helping Team Kentucky get through this crisis by investing in our food banks when they need it most.”

 

Added Austin, Texas Mayor Steve Adler, “It’s critical and so appreciated that in times of great community need, companies that call Austin home, like Siemens, step forward with much needed assistance,” said Austin Mayor Steve Adler.  “Our city is thankful for this gift. Together – we will get through this.”

With more than 3,500 employees throughout the United States, each of these communities support Siemens Mobility employees who live and work in these areas. Siemens Mobility provides rail vehicles, locomotives, components and systems to more than 30 transit agencies and cities such as Atlanta, Boston, Charlotte, Denver, Houston, Minneapolis, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, Sacramento, Salt Lake City, San Diego, Seattle and St. Louis. Our Intelligent Traffic Systems equipment make up 1/3 of all traffic controllers in the U.S. Siemens Mobility is an “essential” business as defined by the Department of Homeland security with employees hard at work to ensure that critical rail and road infrastructure continues to operate throughout the country.

 

Siemens Mobility efforts complement Siemens’ and Siemens Healthineers’ collective efforts to combat COVID-19 in the U.S.  by supporting critical infrastructure and by helping state and local governments address urgent healthcare needs. The company’s employees are maintaining essential operations to support hospitals, power plants, government facilities, military sites, manufacturing locations and data centers. They’re also supporting critical city services such as transportation, water and waste, and national security emergency response systems.  Additionally, Siemens Foundation announced it is providing $1.5 million to community health centers for COVID-19 response efforts.
