From Val Thorens to Stanserhorn

Gangloff Cabins specialize in customized solutions for funicular and APM cars and aerial tramway cabins and gondolas.

Whenever something special is called for, including the refurbishment of historical funicular cars, Marc Pfister can rely on the know-how and long years of experience of his engineers and skilled labour force. With the support of Michael Stähli as Senior Engineer, Marc Pfister is able to satisfy a wide range of individual customer requirements - like the two funicular cars designed and built for the Ocean Express in a Hong Kong leisure park or cars for power station operations as in the case of the Hinterrhein and Heiligenkreuz power plants.
One big event in 2012 will be the opening of the Stanserhorn Cabrio, where the Gangloff cars had to be specially engineered for the unconventional location of the rope and other unusual specifications.

In summer 2011 Gangloff Cabins delivered two cars in an Art Nouveau look designed by two Milan architects for the Como – Brunate funicular. The historical funicular links Como with Brunate and offers panoramic views of Lake Como and the Monte Rosa. Photo: Gangloff Cabins AG
