Pafawag

Pafawag (Państwowa Fabryka Wagonów - National Rail Carriage Factory) is a Polish locomotive manufacturer based in Wrocław. The company became part of Adtranz in 1997 as Adtranz Pafawag, and in 2001 part of Bombardier Transportation. It is now part of the company Bombardier Transportation Polska.
The factory opened in 1833 as Linke-Hofmann-Werke, Breslau, Germany, and became one of the major production centers for rolling stock in Europe.
After the end of WW2 much of the factory had been destroyed, and the city of Breslau became Wroclaw, part of Poland. In 1953 the factory was renamed Pafawag and in the same year introduced the EP-02, the first Polish electric locomotive after WW2.
In the late 1980s to mid 1990s the factory experienced increasing economic problems due to a lack of orders, causing loss of production and less employment opportunities.
In 1997 ABB DaimlerBenz Transportation (ADtranz) acquired a majority share in the company. The Adtranz group (after 1999 named DaimlerChrysler Rail Systems) was bought by Bombardier Transportation in 2001; the Wroclaw plant was merged with another Bombardier-owned plant based in Lodz to form Bombardier Transportation Polska Sp. z o.o. The plant manufacturers the bodyshells of Bombardier locomotives as well as other sub-components for the Bombardier Transportation group.
