Train Manufacturer

Stadler has been building trains for 75 years. For customers who count on reliability, precision and first-class service. Every step of the way, we do our best to make sure that wherever they are in the world, passengers get to their destination safely, quickly and in comfort.

Stadler builds trains which are tailored to meet the needs of customers. Our trains are reliable and safe, with optimum comfort for the passengers’ travels. We are constantly improving the performance and efficiency of our trains using state-of-the-art technologies. Our partners can count on a skilled workforce committed to providing maximum precision and first-class service every day. These Swiss values have shaped and fostered our outstanding reputation. We put reliability, flexibility and innovation into practice – and have done so since 1942.


A passenger carriage has special tasks and requirements to fulfil. We build a wide variety of custom carriages that leave nothing to be desired in terms of interior design, air-conditioning and technology.


We remain the world’s leading manufacturer in the rack-and-pinion rail vehicle industry. Our lightweight vehicles are equipped with a variety of rack systems, drive systems and track gauges so they can handle extreme landscapes and gradients.


Railway companies have been enjoying the advantages of our tailor-made locomotives for over 50 years. We provide the high degree of flexibility that it takes to meet the special requirements – rack-and-pinion and adhesion – of the construction industry, shunting vehicles or combined-use routes. Since taking over a locomotive plant in Valencia, we also offer modular vehicle concepts in the field of locomotives.
