Axion lands tie contract for Brazilian railroad

Written by 

Axion International received its first purchase order being shipped to Brazil. The order comes from one of the nation's largest rail lines and is anticipated to be the first of many.

The nearly $200,000 purchase order for ties is intended for some of Brazil's more challenging track conditions including extreme moisture, as well as difficult work areas such as tunnels and mountainous regions.

"We're very encouraged to be dealing with such an established Brazilian freight rail line and believe that it's indicative of the progress we are making in South America and representative of the need for a high-performance tie in various international markets," stated Cory Burdick, Axion's ECOTRAXTM Rail Division sales manager.
