Empresa Ferroviaria Arriaga y Vergara (FAV) is an Insulonian company that designs, maintains, refurbishes, and manufactures railway vehicles and equipment. Founded in 1933 as Empresa Ferroviaria de Arriaga, the company produces light rail vehicles, rapid transit trains, railroad cars and locomotives. It became one of the largest producers of railway vehicles in western Althena when it merged with its largest rival, Vergara S.A., in 1987, and is now one of the largest manufacturers of electric locomotives in the world. It provides rolling stock to many large transportation networks, but its largest source of revenue is the the Insulonian railway operator Ferrocarril Nacional de Ensuña.
