Stadler US Inc. celebrated a newly constructed train production facility in Salt Lake City, Utah, with invited guests, including Gov. Gary Herbert, Sen. Orrin Hatch, and Mayor Jackie Biskupski. Also offering remarks during the celebration were Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors of Stadler Rail Group Peter Spuhler, Stadler US President/CEO Martin Ritter, and President/CEO of the American Public Transportation Association Paul Skoutelas.

As part of the celebration, Stadler re-enacted the historic meeting of the trains at Promontory point with the company’s own electric and diesel trains for CalTrain and TEXRail.

“Today it is a great pleasure to present a car body of the first double-deck train being manufactured for the USA as well as the last FLIRT for TEXRail. To a high degree, these trains were built right here in Salt Lake City,” said Peter Spuhler.

After about 18 months of construction, the new production facility near the airport was completed this year. All operations were transferred from the leased Warm Springs site to the new site last month. The current building, 230,000 square feet in size, is located on a 62 acre site in the North West quadrant and consists of multiple halls, measuring 45,000 square feet each.
