Stadler buys VIPCO – now Stadler Mannheim


Train manufacturer Stadler has taken over VIPCO, based in Manheim, Germany, where a team of 50 engineers has, for over 20 years, pioneered the use of electronics in harsh conditions, particularly in the field of transportation.

As well as this facility in Mannheim, VIPCO has offices in Kassel and Halle.

The renamed Stadler Mannheim, with facilities in Mannheim, Kassel and Halle, will focus mainly on the development of software and hardware components for train control systems, automation, communication and diagnostic systems for the whole Stadler Group. 

As well as supply systems for new build, Stadler Mannheim will also look at retrofitting these technologies to older trains to extend their operational lives.

Jure Mikolčić, CEO of Stadler Germany, said: “We are really pleased to have gained in the number of highly competent experts in Germany through the Stadler Mannheim GmbH team.
