Switzerland-based train manufacturer, Stadler Rail, recently announced their plans to build a new major manufacturing facility in Salt Lake City.  This new North American headquarters at 150 South 5600 West will cover 63 acres and house a state-of-the-art train manufacturing center, over a mile of rail test track, and will eventually include a million-square –foot campus and 1,000 direct jobs.    

Phase one will begin early next year with the installation of utilities and the construction of access roads and a manufacturing plant with an office building. Over the next decade, the plant can expand in modular sections to accommodate client orders.

IPG Commercial was honored to represent Stadler in the transaction.
