Stadler Begins Facility Construction

Breaking ground Oct. 13 for a new Stadler Rail Group manufacturing facility in Salt Lake City are, from left: Martin Ritter, CEO, Stadler US; Salt Lake City Mayor Jackie Biskupski; Utah Gov. Gary Herbert; Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT); and Peter Spuhler, CEO/owner, Stadler Rail. Randy Clarke, APTA vice president for member services and operations, spoke at the ceremonies about the national economic benefits of the public transit industry and introduced Hatch. Before beginning construction on the $50 million plant, Stadler had rented a former Union Pacific facility to build trains for the Fort Worth (TX) Transportation Authority’s future TEXRail service. More recently, Caltrain, San Carlos, CA, contracted with the company to construct 16 bi-level trains.
