Company Report & Profile – Stadler Rail 2020
Stadler was founded in 1942 by Ernst Stadler and has been manufacturing rail vehicles for over 75 years. In 1945, the company began producing batteries and diesel locomotives and built its first assembly plant in 1962 in the canton of Thurgau. In 1984, production of passenger cars began, with a focus on contract manufacturing for Swiss private railways. The current president and CEO Peter Spuhler joined Stadler in 1987 and took over in 1989.
Stadler launched its first key product, the “GTW 2/6”, in 1994 and then went through a phase of focusing on international expansion and significant growth. This growth was also driven by a number of key acquisitions, including Schindler Waggon’s Alternhein plant in 1997, Sulzer’s former Swiss Locomotive and Machine Works in 1998, Winpro AG in 2005, Vioth Rail Services in the Netherlands in 2013 and Vossloh’s locomotive and light rail vehicle business in Spain in 2015. The company has been listed on the Swiss stock exchange since April 2019.
