Talgo is an engineering Spanish company specialized in the design and manufacturing of trains, as well as in the provision of maintenance services to railway operators worldwide.
Talgo was established in 1942 as a result of an innovative light and articulated train concept, which provided a significant improvement from an operational and maintenance point of view compared to other contemporary trains. Some of these improvements were: lower energy consumption, reduced traction effort and travel times with practically no investment on the infrastructure, increased passenger comfort, accessibility and safety.
This “revolution” was considered as a great engineering development, not only in our country but also internationally and since then Talgo has been at the Forefront of the railway innovation and development. Since then and up to the present, Talgo has kept its innovative nature by means of the permanent improvement of its products, as well as the creation of new solutions adapted to the transport needs of its customers (railway operators all around the world) and society.
70 years after its creation, the company has become a passenger train global manufacturer, specialized in the design, manufacturing and maintenance of regional, intercity and high speed trains. Nowadays, Talgo is a high speed leader, being the main supplier of high-speed trains in Spain and worldwide is placed among the main companies within this field.
Today, there are Talgo trains running through countries such as Spain, Portugal, France, Switzerland, Italy, USA, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
