CAF USA's Elmira (New York, USA) Manufacturing Facility
Elmira, New York, is home to CAF USA's American railcar production facility. The Elmira facility, which was purchased in 2000, comes from an extensive history in the rail vehicle manufacturing, and its purchase represented the consolidation of CAF USA in the US rail transportation manufacturing.
Known mostly for final assembly of rail cars since the mid-1980's, the Elmira facility spans across 38 acres and has more than 400,000 Sq. Ft. of covered space. It houses CAF USA's Engineering, Production, Testing, and Human Resources. CAF USA has gradually increased its activities in Elmira over the years and has completed important upgrades to the plant. One of the most notable features of the Elmira facility is its test track, which covers 2,700 ft. in distance, allowing CAF USA to conduct many critical vehicle tests before the railcar is shipped to CAF USA's customers.
As part of CAF USA's strategic plan and our commitment to Buy America, CAF USA is establishing a stainless steel car shell manufacturing facility within the Elmira plant. This significant investment will allow us manufacture 100% in the US with an American workforce.
