Axion to supply crossties to second Class 1 railroad

Written by 

Axion International has received a purchase order for its first installation of ties from another Class 1 railroad. This represents the second of the nation's Class 1 rail lines that Axion is doing business with, following a multi-year contract announced earlier in 2011.

As part of this new order, Axion will also be pre-plating the ties so they're ready for immediate installation. The ties are being installed in new track in a very humid, wet environment where Axion's ECOTRAX perform well, as they are impervious to the outdoor weather elements.

"This is a significant step for Axion in that we're expanding our relationships and sales into another of the nation's largest rail lines," stated Axion CEO and President Steve Silverman.
