Talgo will return to Milwaukee to refurbish trains for Los Angeles Transit Authority

MILWAUKEE --  Train manufacturer Talgo Inc. will return to Milwaukee’s Century City Business Park to refurbish trains under a $73 million contract with the Los Angeles Metropolitan Transit Authority.

It marks a return for the Spanish train manufacturer, which left Milwaukee in spring 2014 after a lengthy battle with state officials over canceled contracts to manufacture and maintain trains.

Talgo will move back into the building it formerly leased from the city of Milwaukee in the Century City Business Park -- located along W. Hopkins, south of Capitol Drive.

Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett announced the move during his budget speech on Monday, September 26th.

"I don't know how many jobs it's going to be. It's a large contract for the City of Los Angeles. So it will take, I assume many people -- but I don't know how many," Barrett said.
