After an order had been placed for diesel FLIRT trains by TexRail, the Texan rail operator, in 2015, involving federal funding, Stadler benefited for the first time from the Buy America Act, which prescribes a high level of local content. Therefore, Stadler is building an assembly facility to process this project in Salt Lake City, Utah. Getting on for 100 workers are to be employed at the site, which covers 2750 m2 of land, in the following areas: pre-assembly, final assembly, bogie assembly, as well as commissioning and startup.

In August 2016, Stadler signed a contract with the rail operator Caltrain to deliver 16 double-decker trains, connecting San Francisco to San Jose in Silicon Valley from 2020. The signing of this contract marked Stadler's seventh successful sale in the United States. Stadler secured its first order in 2002 for 20 articulated multiple units (GTW) for the New Jersey Transit River Line. After that, it received an order from the Capital Metropolitan Transportation Authority (CMTA) from Austin, Texas for six diesel articulated multiple units to run between the centre of Austin and Leander. The fleet was delivered in spring 2008, and an additional order was placed in 2015 for four further vehicles. Stadler received an order from Denton County Transportation Authority (DCTA) to design and manufacture to design an manufacture eleven GTW diesel multiple units. These low-floor trains have been serving six stations in the region of Denton County, Texas since 2012. In April 2014, San Francisco Bay Area Rapid Transit District (BART) commissioned Stadler to supply eight diesel articulated multiple units to service the connection between the BART Pittsburgh/Bay Point terminal and Antioch, which is to go into operation in 2017. And in June 2015, the Fort Worth Transportation Authority ("The T") placed an order with Stadler for the design, building and delivery of eight FLIRT-type diesel multiple units for the new commuter route between Fort Worth and the northern terminal at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
