Stadler Rail Service UK
Stadler Rail Service UK Limited is a subsidiary of Stadler Rail AG, Switzerland.
Stadler provides a train maintenance service for a growing number of clients in the
UK. In the next few years over 100 new Stadler trains will be joining the English
railway network. This is an excellent prospect for Stadler UK, which supports the
maintenance of all Stadler trains with efficient and versatile services.
Stadler is headquartered in Liverpool, a vibrant city in the North West of the United
Kingdom. Stadler chose Liverpool for its UK Headquarters because of its great
transport links to other parts of the country, and being centrally positioned for the
other contracts that Stadler has won. In 2016 alone, Stadler won three tenders with
integrated solutions – vehicles and maintenance – in the United Kingdom: 52
METRO trains for the Liverpool urban region, 58 FLIRT multiple unit trains for Abellio
East Anglia and 17 underground trains for the Glasgow Subway (SPT). The
continuous low-floor design ensures level access, while sliding steps minimize the
gap between the vehicle and platform. Jacobs bogies ensure a reduced axle load,
and efficient drives – electric, diesel or hybrid – reduce operating costs over the
entire life cycle. Low life-cycle costs are one of Stadler’s core strengths.
Stadler Liverpool is responsible for the maintenance and cleaning of the Merseyrail
507 and 508 class of train. In 2021, Stadler will phase out the existing fleet and
introduce a new metro train, class 777. The maintenance, shunting and cleaning
activities for both new and old fleets will take place at the Kirkdale and Birkenhead
North depots. Stadler currently has a workforce of around 7000 employees around
