CAF USA, Inc.
was incorporated in 1998
in the State of Delaware
in order to establish CAF’s
North American operations
on a permanent basis.
CAF USA, Inc.
quickly solidified its position
in the United States transit market
by securing three significant orders
and Pittsburgh PAAC),
a state of the art
in upstate NY
and successfully developing a structure
that allows seamless transfer
of information, engineering and R&D resources
from the parent company, CAF S.A.
to the domestic level.
CAF USA is a fully owned subsidiary of CAF S.A.
and is fully integrated within the CAF Group.
Its organizational structure is configured
to maximize the efficiency
of the decision making process
and facilitate flexibility
in areas such as resource allocation.
CAF USA began manufacturing carshells
at the facility in Elmira, NY
as a strategic decision
to increase domestic manufacturing,
create additional United States jobs
and consolidate its presence in the US rail market.
Domestic carshell manufacturing
also reduces transportation costs and time
and allows CAF USA maximum competitiveness.
With additional contracts including
Amtrak, Houston, Cincinnati and Kansas City,
CAF USA has established itself as a leader
in the US rail transportation market
in the design, manufacture and maintenance
of all types of railcars including
LRVs, metros, streetcars and long distance trains.
