Descriptif / Historique

CAF is a century-old railway manufacturer which has experienced strong international development since the 1990s. In 2020, the CAF Group employs more than 13,000 people worldwide and generates nearly 3 billion euros in turnover in a around sixty countries, 90% of which are outside its national territory.

CAF is a manufacturer of rolling stock (mainline trains, regional trains, subways, trams) which has diversified for fifteen years in order to meet the technological challenges to come, to better meet the needs of its customers and to become a leader in the supply of urban collective mobility solutions.

CAF has been established in France since 2008 and the acquisition of the CFD plant in Bagnères-de-Bigorre, in the Hautes-Pyrénées. The site, which recently hosted the production of the Luxembourg tramway, is now working on the renovation of the RER A trainsets and the construction of a locotractor for the RATP.

CAF was chosen in October 2019 by SNCF to replace the Intercités of the Paris-Orléans-Limoge-Toulouse and Paris-Clermont-Ferrand lines. The assembly of these new generation trains for an amount of 571 M Euros will be carried out in Bagnères-de-Bigorre.

To meet current and future orders while improving its competitiveness and its social, environmental and territorial impact, CAF France is investing 17 million Euros between 2021 and 2023 on the Bagnères-de-Bigorre site. The challenge is to build the factory of the future, versatile, sustainable and connected. The innovations range from internal logistics to the organization of production, and should make it possible to increase site capacity and generate significant productivity gains. Improving energy efficiency and installing solar panels should also make the site more environmentally friendly.
