Stadler completes Polish JV takeover

The tram manufacturing facility Środa Wielkopolska.

Following the completion of CAF’s takeover of Solaris in September, on
20 November Stadler confirmed the purchase of the remaining 40% stake in the Stadler/Solaris light rail manufacturing joint venture established in 2017.

Stadler now becomes the sole owner of the enterprise, and has announced a PLN65m (EUR15m) investment to modernise the Solaris facility in Środa Wielkopolska, including expansion of the main manufacturing hall and increasing the already 250-strong workforce.

Stadler Polska is already one of the leading manufacturers of rail vehicles in the country, with over 1000 employees working at its Siedlce plant.
