A Canadian company that built parts of the Eurostar trains and the Croydon Tramlink trams. They also built the Turbostar class 170 units which are widely used throughout Britain. They are one of the companies which took over British Rail's R&D facilities after privatization (the rest was mainly absorbed into Alstom).

Bombardier also developed and produces the Acela Express train which runs between Boston, New York City and Washington DC. This is the first high-speed rail line in North America, running at a top speed of 150 mph.

They also make Ski-doo brand snowmobiles, Sea-doo personal watercraft and boats, Bombardier all-terrain vehicles and de Haviland aircraft. They are a major Canadian defense contractor.
