Italian railway signalling specialist Ansaldo STS explains why championing the needs of society and the environment is central to the company’s business model

By Ansaldo STS

Ansaldo STS is active all over the world as a contractor and supplier of turnkey services and solutions, executing large global projects for passenger and freight railways and metro lines.

In addition to its turnkey projects for large metro lines, Ansaldo STS boasts significant long-term experience in the high-speed sector as a supplier and integrator of all sub-systems: interoperable signalling systems, telecommunications, electric power supply, on-board equipment and integration and electrification, and wayside equipment.

In recent years the world has changed dramatically. To be successful as a business, it is no longer enough to have a good product. Now, companies need to understand the needs of both their customers and of wider society, offering solutions that create value for both.

Ansaldo STS combines experience with human, financial and technological resources to provide innovative solutions in the design and construction of equipment and systems for conventional and high-speed railway lines, mass transit rail network signalling and automation for passengers and freight.

Unique vision
The more we make sustainable long-term decisions, the better the interaction between our company, society and the environment will be, and this approach is part of our competitive edge.

Ansaldo STS’s economic sustainability is its strategic answer to the macroeconomic context and transportation market trends. It is based on a business model that develops distinctive abilities and skills to boost the company’s market competitiveness: its core is the growth of human and organisational capital.

The Ansaldo STS brand remains strong around the world, especially now it is within the Hitachi group. We can seize new opportunities by sharing the ethics and principles that have always characterised Ansaldo STS. Our unique vision combines social innovation with awareness of the impact our work has on the daily lives of millions, through their travel needs and the transport of essential goods.

Creating innovative products
Our commitment continues to be focused on improving people’s everyday lives, by connecting the passage of people and goods, business and pleasure. In doing this, we enable the creation of increasingly tangible and feasible social interaction and opportunities for economic development, through the use of technology applied to rail transport.

Ansaldo STS considers the social, economic, logistical, architectural, environmental and structural context of each project it handles, by planning, designing and building signalling and mass transit systems that provide the best possible combination of safety, efficiency and return on investment.

“We design and implement solutions and components for rail transport and mobility, creating value for our community,” says Andrew Barr, Chief Executive Officer and General Manager of Ansaldo STS. “We are committed to creating innovative products that improve the quality of life and sustain responsibly the world in which we live.

“We consider sustainability in terms of social development, thus contributing to security, efficiency, reliability and respect for the environment with solutions which are moving on daily millions of people and transporting goods needed to all; focusing on technological solutions in response to user needs in increasingly complex and diverse contexts and lifestyles.”
