Owned. But manufactured in factories they bought up in Europe (Talbot 1995, ADtranz = ABB Daimler Benz Transportation [ex ABB, AEG, Henschel] 2001, a lot more), along with the technology. In part the same is true for GE Energy's wind branch (ex Enron, ex Tacke), whose development centers on Germany and production on the EU.
