Ahmedabad, Nov 20 (UNI) Board member Jane Garvey has stepped down from Bombardier Inc to serve on U S president-elect Barack Obama's transition team.

Bombardier has announced a board change and a search will be undertaken to find a replacement of Ms Garvey, a company release said here today.

Chairman of the Board of Bombardier Inc Laurent Beaudoin wished her great success, saying that ''I would like to thank Jane Garvey for her sound advice and guidance during her tenure.'' Bombardier has recently expanded its presence in India through its Transportation business (dedicated to railway equipment) and inaugurated a major railway vehicle manufacturing site in Vadodara, which is the first of its kind to be wholly owned by a foreign multinational.

The new investment underlines Bombardier Transportation's long-term commitment to India, a market where the company has been active for almost 35 years and will make the city of Vadodara the only city in the world equipped to deliver all key electrical and mechanical components for the manufacturing of railway vehicles.

The Savli manufacturing site in Vadodara was built in a record 18 months and will be operating soon with the first railway cars already expected at the assembly lines by March 2009. Bombardier's new manufacturing site in India was designed and built from scratch following the most modern industrial standards worldwide and based on a transfer of technology from Bombardier's state-of-the-art railway vehicle manufacturing plant located in Gorlitz, Germany.
