Rolling stock manufacturer Stadler Rail has opened its train manufacturing site in Salt Lake City, Utah.
The site was inaugurated in the presence of Utah Governor Gary Herbert, Stadler Rail Group Board of Directors executive chairman Peter Spuhler and other officials.
Stadler began building in October 2017 and completed it in around 18 months. The company is said to have invested around $50m for the construction of the facility.
Located near the airport, the Salt Lake site is situated on a 62-acre area in the North West quadrant and spans 230,000ft².
It comprises multiple halls with an area of 45,000ft² each.
The company celebrated the opening by re-enacting the historic meeting of the trains at Promontory point with its own electric and diesel trains for CalTrain and TEXRail.
Spuhler said: “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.”
